Full description
Explore the plant and animal wildlife outside Faro on a 1.5-hour trip through the nearby Rio Formosa Natural Park. There, you will take a Segway tour of the reserve and spend time bird watching at Ludo, a natural reserve near Faro Beach, located inside the park. This area is a stopping place for hundreds of different birds during the spring and autumn migratory periods. The entire park is a protected area and home to several marine species and birds. It is a very special and quiet place where you can be in direct contact with nature. After pick-up, you will be taken to the park and given a Segway to use. This 2-wheeled electric vehicle uses the equilibrium of its driver to propel forward. Once you have been instructed how to operate your Segway, you will head out on the paths and trails in the park and discover the beauty and tranquility of this reserve. As you ride along, your guide will point out various animal species for you, exposing you to the natural and protected life of the region.

Meeting point

If you've arrived at Faro Airport, you'll notice that you'll have a roundabout with some statues looking at the sky just when you leave the airport. In the roundabout there are 3 exits: 1 for the airport, 1 for Faro city, and the last one to the beach. Follow the one to the beach (if you are leaving the airport, it's the exit on the left). Follow the road to the beach and stop at the first corner to the right. We will be there waiting for you with a couple of Segways and a white van with some colored circles and Segways as part of its design.

Love the experience of using the segway to navigate and explore the place!!! It’s my first time using segway and was very nervous in the beginning but Nelson is such a great teacher! And a great and fun guide throughout the tour! We’ve seen a lot of wildlife and learned interesting facts. It’s such a wonderful and fun experience i would definitely recommend!

Highly recommended! We had booked in the morning, but unfortunately everything was already full for the day (the availability display on getyourguide was incorrect). Nelson contacted us immediately and organized the sunset tour for the 4 of us in the evening. We then did this together with Andre, who was a really great guide. He told and explained a lot and took us to really nice spots. You felt really safe with him!

Had a lovely long Segway trip with the wonderful Andre. He was helpful and informative. He told us about the area, about the salt beds, the Carib trees, the Quinta da Lago complex…. The scenery is breathtaking and the paths and board walk are a great area to use the Segway on. A very positive and enjoyable experience which we would highly recommend.
