Kayaking on the main kayaking river of Portugal, the Mondego, is an experience all lovers of the outdoor sould try when visiting Portugal!
These kayak-tours are adapted for everyone who is not affraid of water. The combination of the natural beauty of the Mondego valley – with its cliffs, forests and river beaches – and the excellent and yearlong stable water level made the Mondego the preferred river for canoeing and kayaking in Portugal. Enjoy a relaxing and refreshing day on the river and observe the majestic prey-birds, the king-fishers and a great variety of river fish.
The kayaking school was founded in 1988 and it was one of the first companies in adventure tourism in Portugal. Over the years the company has grown and more than 100.000 people from all over the world have kayaked on the Mondego with us. Today O Pioneiro do Mondego is a national and international reference; in 2014 our company has been nominated among the top-15 highlights of Portugal by the “Rough Guides”.
