Overview
Experience nature up close and personal on a Segway, during this 1.5-hour birdwatching tour in Ria Formosa Natural Park, departing from Faro. The beauty of the Algarve is in its iconic landscapes and untouched marshes. During this tour, explore Ria Formosa Natural Park and spot native and migratory birds feeding in freshwater lagoons, tidal flats and other ecosystems. Catch glimpses of flamingos, the rare purple swamphen, and other bird species as you learn about their natural habitat from your expert guide. This nature and wildlife tour also offers an optional pickup and drop-off from your Algarve hotel.
What to Expect
Meet your guide near the Faro airport at a predetermined time or at your Algarve hotel for a pickup (if upgrade selected). Then begin your birdwatching tour by Segway at Ria Formosa Natural Park.

First, listen to a safety briefing that explains how to operate your electric self-balancing Segway. Then, strap on your helmet and cruise to Ria Formosa Natural Park, while savoring scenic coastal views along the way. See the Park’s marshes, freshwater lagoons, and tidal flats that comprise this important tranquil habitat. Learn about the hundreds of species that live here during spring and autumn migration periods.

Traverse nature and wildlife surroundings along smooth trails and paths. Then, zip over to Ludo for the park’s best birdwatching. Gaze into your binoculars and scan lush ecosystems for vibrant rosy-pink flamingos and purple swamphen preening their plumage. Listen as your guide explains how the park’s system of barrier islands communicates with the sea and makes a perfect home to its feathered inhabitants.

Continue birdwatching in the Algarve while searching for more unusual species and rare specimens until your 1.5 hours comes to a close. Then, drop off your Segway and return to your departure point.

Great fun - wonderful experience

Our third time!. We will keep bringing our guests. They all start scared but rapidly become totally competent, thanks to the excellent support and guidance from Nelson and Andre. Everyone ends up loving it - and impressing the grandchildren! Can we book for next year?

Excellent tour

The 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed this tour which is so much more than bird watching. Nelson is an excellent guide and great care with us on the Segways. It’s been the highlight of our daughters holiday! We would highly recommend this tour!
