If your kids are craving adventure, then Albufeira might be one of the best places on earth for an active family outing! Parque Aventura is a very well managed Adventure Park with fun and plenty of skill games to challenge the whole family. See if you can manage all levels!
Love the great outdoors? Why not combine your family's passion for nature with an exploration of Albufeira on two-wheels. Algarve's bike trails are some of the best you can experience, and with routes suitable for all levels (and ages!), there's never been a better time to start pedaling!
If adrenaline is in your family's blood, then a Jet Boat ride is a must! Jet Boat riding in the Albufeira ocean waters is an exciting adventure that you won't forget. Just don't try this one at home!
If exploring the ocean is on your list, then a boat tour through the Atlantic Ocean waters of Albufeira shouldn't be missed. Dolphins Driven provides a great family-friendly tour offering an entirely different perspective of the Algarve, and it's a very entertaining trip too. If you're lucky, you might even come across a pod of wild dolphins!
Zoomarine is located just minutes away from Albufeira old town, and provides free shuttle buses to ensure you get there safely. The theme park is immense, with lots of different attractions - from a water park and dolphin interaction to a birds of prey area with free flying hawks, owls and eagles. Zoomarine is surely one of the best European aquatic wildlife parks, and one that will leave your family with fond lasting memories of Albufeira.
Horseback riding can be a very rewarding activity on your holidays, allowing you to interact with nature in a very special way. Centro Hípico Quinta da Saudade is a family-friendly horseback riding center in Albufeira, which caters to all levels of riding experience, from beginner to expert. Nature trails through the Algarve countryside and along the beach are available, so you can easily customize a trek based on your family's interests.
Another thrilling family adventure awaits you in Albufeira! Quad-bike riding is a motorsport fan's dream come true, and Quad Ventura offers it in a very safe and entertaining environment. The quads are in good shape, the tours are great, and exploring the beautiful Algarve countryside at top speeds is an experience you're unlikely to forget!
Albufeira was once a fisherman's village, but has changed over time with the tourism wave. While many traditional skills have been lost - including the majority of fishing activity - the authentic Alzirinha fishing boat has fortunately remained, and is now a living reminder of a by-gone-era. Climb aboard and explore the coastline, just as the fisherman once did - gaining an understanding of local history as you go.
