As Lands was founded by trained biologists, we are always helping guests appreciate nature while looking after the environment.
This is a 2.5-hour birdwatching boat tour aboard a solar-powered boat that provides a smooth and quiet ride throughout the route and preserves the natural heritage of Ria Formosa. With departures from Faro, you have the chance to learn more about the fauna and flora of this protected Algarve area.
While on tour, you will visit the lagoon and marshes of Ria Formosa, watch numerous birds and all the nature and wildlife without disturbing it. Ria Formosa is a paradise for nature lovers, and as your guide is a trained and qualified biologist, they will help you understand and appreciate the enormous diversity in this beautiful area.
Explore canals and marshes to watch birds such as the white stork, little egret, and spoonbill. As we head to the islands of this Nature Park, there is a chance to approach shellfish farms and oyster beds. Learn about these economic activities where it is possible to find countless birds. Your guide will explain the importance of this activity for the local population as the boat heads towards a paradisiacal place near where the lagoon meets the sea for you to enjoy a stop.

We were very lucky to have the chance, that no other guest had booked in this time of your, so we had the alert observing eye and the great knowledge of Francesco all for ourselves. As I was keen mainly to see and distinguish the waders, he pointed them out to me and shared his knowledge about their behaviour and way of living.
For birders, a boat tour in Ria Formosa is not to be missed!
Top expérience, visite guidée dans Rio Formosa pour découvrir lés oiseaux qui étaient au rdv en nombre et en diversité. Le tout sublimé par le silence du bateau à moteur électrique. Guide sympa et à l’écoute, je recommande
We’ve seen amazing birds and the tour guide fascinated us with his knowledge about the area and the different species of birds. Totally best way to explore Ria Formosa!
Tres bonne activité à faire en couple ou en famille. Le bateau électrique est un bon moyen pour écouter le chant des oiseaux et pour s’approcher au plus près
The tour guide was very informative and friendly, great way to see and learn about the natural park.
