Private Tour - Private Guide: 

As the Mondego is the most beautifull and accessible valley to kayak in Portugal, there can be a lot of people on the river during the summer. While this is still not by any means comparable to crowded rivers in other European countries, we have developped this private tour package to make sure that you can enjoy the silence beauty and peacefullness in the ensuring company with a private englis speaking guide. We offer a small pickick with local products on a river beach along the way!

The private tour takes place in groups of 2 to 6 people, and includes a private transport from our base at Torres do Mondego (see map) – or from the center of Coimbra (see map). The 18 km trip takes 3-4 hours by kayak, and count some 2 extra hours for stops and transport.

In order to avoid crowds on the river; meeting hours tend to be at 9.00 in the morning or around noon.

The price of this exclusive package has an extra cost of 80 euros above the normal price.
