Coimbra: Mondego River Kayaking Tour

1. Coimbra: Mondego River Kayaking Tour

After meeting your tour guide in the morning, you will be transported to Penacova and provided with the kayaking equipment and some instructions. Then, set off from the Carvoeira dam on a kayaking tour with a total length of 18 km (11 miles).  You'll be kayaking through the natural Mondego river valley, surrounded by extensive forests. As you travel downriver, you will pass by the small villages of Ronqueira, Rebordosa, Louredo, Foz do Caneiro and Casal. This part of the river is full of small beaches where you can stop for a picnic or go to go for a swim. On the river beach of Palheiros, you'll find a small bar where you can buy an ice cream or a cold beer. The river usually has a light current, which makes the kayaking easy and accessible to all ages. Finish in Torres do Mondego, after 3-4 hours of kayaking and breaks along the way. Expect to arrive between 15.00 and 17.00 pm.

What people are saying about Coimbra District

Very nice kayak tour on the Mondego river. You go with the flow, but still work hard against a headwind. If you are not that strong or if you are in pain quickly, better skip it. But the view and the relaxing environment are well worth it! And staff were very friendly and helpful.

Fantastic day out on the mondego river that is a guided tour start to finish. All of the tour guides are personable and friendly and it added to the breathtaking scenery.
