What you can expect

The vast Ria Formosa lagoon system is home to verdant islands along the Algarve coastline. Hop on an easy-to-use Segway to explore hidden corners of this protected natural paradise. Journey along hidden paths in fragrant forests and see a wide variety of wetland birds on this leisurely adventure.

Although only a short distance from the vibrant port town of Faro, the nearly 45,000-acre (18,000 ha) Ria Formosa Natural Park feels like a world away. A vast area of marshes, salt pans, creeks, dune islands and freshwater lakes, it serves as a barrier between the sweeping blue horizon of the Atlantic and the sunny coast of southern Portugal.

Join an experienced guide to discover the rich birdlife the area is famous for. With a little luck you can spot ducks, shorebirds, gulls, terns and even flamingos. You even have the chance to see a rare purple gallinule in its natural environment. Breathe in the fresh air and enjoy a relaxing day out, away from the bustling tourist resorts of the Algarve.
