Come and visit the Lagoa de Óbidos with who really knows it, either by Kayak or on foot.
Either on kayak, through the islands, sand banks and the nooks of the Lagoon, or walking through the ancient tracks hidden by the vegetation along the banks of the Óbidos Lagoon, make one of our nature tours and have fun while you explore this “thousand-years old” estuary.
Come alone, bring some friends, girlfriend or boyfriend, family and children, bring your dog … come as you wish, but come with the certainty that you will have an amazing day!
All our activities are carried out safe, stable and comfortable kayaks and accompanied by one or two certified local guides.

Where you will learn about Local History and Traditions, Marine life identification*, Birdwatching and Edible Seaweed and Plants. If the tides and conditions permit, you will learn how to catch shellfish using traditional techniques (catch & release)

Passeio de Kayak pela Lagoa de Óbidos
Uma manhã muito bem passada e, ao contrário do que pensávamos, estar encoberto foi inclusivamente uma vantagem ao tornar o passeio e o desafio da remada (no meu caso, como estreante) mais tranquilos.
O Miguel, como biólogo e um amante de geologia, transmitiu nos um conhecimento mais profundo acerca da Lagoa de Óbidos, e um bocadinho da sua história. Como por exemplo: introduzir nos as formas e as diferenças evidentes de alguns moluscos (ostra, amêijoa, berbigão e mexilhão), bem como identificar a presença dos mesmos e qual a melhor estratégia para os apanhar. Etc (para não fazer spoiler!)
Recomendamos vivamente este passeio e fica o agradecimento ao Miguel, e família, face à boa disposição, conhecimento transmitido e generosidade!! Até breve 🙂
