Tour highlights

SPEA – Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds

Non-governmental organization that has been dedicated to the study and conservation of nature in Portugal. Their specialized technicians who guide visits have deep knowledge about the territory and its natural heritage. They will guide you to places where nature and history can be observed and interpreted.

Tagus Estuary

The largest wetland in the country and one of the most important in Europe: a sanctuary for fish, molluscs, crustaceans and especially for the birds that stop here in the migration between northern Europe and Africa.

Salinas do Samouco

Samouco’s salt pans are hundreds of years old, and give us an idea of how salt was produced in the past. Here you can learn more about the history of these salt pans, how salt is produced. In addition, they are a very important place for food, refuge and nesting for thousands of birds, due to their proximity to the Tagus estuary.

Which makes the Salinas do Samouco a birdwatching place par excellence!
You can also take this opportunity to taste salt and take some home.

Birdwatching

Depending on the season we may see species such as Little Tern, Black-winged Stilt, Kentish Plover, Flamingos, among many others. During the 3 hours guided tour you will be in the salt pans, with you a local guide specialized in avifauna and knowledgeable of the area who will explain everything about the type of habitat present and the birds that depend on it.

Setúbal

It owes its special beauty to the Atlantic Ocean, the River Sado and the mountains that welcome this city. With a very strong past of fishing and agriculture, it has established itself as a place for tourism and leisure. It’s the ideal place to taste grilled fish or the famous cuttlefish (Lunch not included in the price).

Arrábida Mountain natural park

Known for its Mediterranean climate and flora. Here you will have a unique opportunity to enjoy amazing views.
