Full description

Discover the wonders of the Sesimbra in the heart of Arrábida Natural Park on this guided trip. Explore the water by kayak and stop at the Ribeiro do Cavalo Beach for a picnic and some relaxation in the sun.

Choose between pickup from Lisbon or meeting directly in the ancient village of Sesimbra (about a 45-minute drive from Lisbon). Once in Sesimbra, hop in a kayak (double sit on top kayaks) to go into the ocean. Sesimbra is located in the heart of Arrábida Natural Park and has the most beautiful landscape in the region, filled with limestone cliffs, grouts, passages in between rock formations, and a beach to enjoy a break and soak in the sun. The first leg on the Kayak from the starting point is about 1.5-hours of paddling until you reach Ribeiro do Cavalo Beach. Enjoy a picnic break where you can admire the landscape in a relaxed way.

Options are available if you have food allergies or other restrictions (a message will be sent with extra info about the food and with extra info before the start of the trip). The second leg on the kayaks will bring you back to the starting point. The journey in general is a bit faster as you'll have some wind helping you on the return route. If you chose pickup, get driven back to Lisbon for drop-off.

An unforgettable experience with Rui and his super friendly team! It was like a kayak trip with friends. Everything was well organized. We received additional important information about the tour in advance. From picking you up in Lisbon to kayaking and staying on the beach with a lunchtime snack: Very professional and at the same time very personal and warm. Definitely do!

Highly recommend!! Such a fun and beautiful day. Pickup was right next to my hostel and very easy to find. The guide was fantastic and local. Such a great experience. Made everyone feel so comfortable. Even if you have never kayaked before, you need to do this. The guide will help and teach you. 10/10! I really enjoyed this experience so much.

Had a great experience! Everything was very well arranged. A lot of attention was also paid to safety. It was really nice to get out of the city and do something active and I can highly recommend the kayak tour. We spent an hour on a beautiful beach and had lunch there too.
