This is the perfect place for those who like nature and need to unwind from day to day life. And for those who love nature photography and bird watching, don’t forget to bring the camera and charged batteries, you’ll need them!
Get to know the “Ilha das Garças” (Island of Herons), “Ilha dos Amores” (Island of Loves) and “Ilha dos Cavalos” (Island of Horses), among others. You will go through riverside villages, “Valada”, “Palhota” and, if tide allows it, navigate the secondary channels. Nearly secret places that only those who were born here know well.
Rio-a-Dentro nature tours are an ecotourism activity, during which you’ll get to known and discover river Tagus and its biodiversity. You will see birds and horses closely, but without disturbing them. Many of the species of birds that live here also nest in the area.
