My friend and I hiked part of the Historical Way and the Fisherman's Trail in September 2018. Carlos picked us up in Lisbon, took us to our first destination, Santiago de Cacem, and transported our luggage to each of our destinations on the trails. It was so nice at the end of a long day of walking to have our luggage waiting for us! He was easy to communicate with, was very responsive, and always helpful. I left some shoes at one of our hotels and he picked them up and brought them to me the next day. He picked us up at the end of our hike and took us back to Lisbon all for 200euro each, a bargain. I would highly recommend Carlos' Nature Activities services to anyone!

Carlos from Nature Activities was our taxidriver and organizer while walking parts of the Historical and Fisherman's Trail in Portugal. He picked us up punctually at the Lisbon airport, and drove us to our first destination, Santiago do Cacem. From there, and for the next seven days, he picked up our luggage from our accomation and brought it to the next accomodation. It was such a blessing to see our luggage waiting for us after walking 20 km!. Walking the trail with a daypack made the hiking so much more enjoyable! And Carlos was helpful, punctual, and realible. In addition, he is a great driver, and has a good sense of humor. From our last trail destination, Odeceixe, Carlos picked us up and dropped us back off in Lisbon. It couldn't have been easier or better!

We booked a ride from the airport (Faro) to Porto Covo, to go hiking from there to Odeceixe. Carlos picked us up right in time from Faro, and again on the way back from Odeceixe. He had great advice about the trip, stopped at the supermarket on the way there so we could buy some supplies, and picked us up right on time on the way back. Perfect.

We went to Nature Activities for kayaking from Milfontes. We checked online, found an address and went there to find.... nothing! Wrote an email, they replied within the hour and we took it from there (turns out they were closed that specific day but we arranged for day after). Very nicely organized in the end, we just met up, got the kayak and the safety equipment and off we went up the river. Very relaxed and very easy! Best to call them directly though :-)

Walking along the coastline between Porto Covo and Odeceixe is one long highlight for everybody who loves the sea, the cliffs, the colourful rocks that meet the blue sky and the ocean! Peaceful towns and villages make you feel comfortable, friendly people who look after you at your accommodation or on transfers that make your route more enjoyable make your days all the more pleasant. Continue on the Rota Vicentina all the way to Cabo de Sao Vicente and you will get to know more of the country inland as well as spectacular parts of the southern coastline!

We took the 'Exploring Rio Mira' trip, dropped off at Casa Branca by our extremely friendly and helpful guide to paddle back to Vila Nova de Milfontes.
The plan was to float with the tide, which worked perfectly, except the wind came up more than expected and whipped the longer reaches of the river into significant waves, making the paddle more fun but also far more challenging!
The scenery and wildlife are stunning, and the last stretch with views of the bridge and town with the ocean waves breaking into estuary at the end a fitting finale.
Even in calmer conditions it is a significant stretch, so don't take it on lightly, he does offer a shorter out-and-back option too, but it was well worth the effort for me and my 73-year-young Mum!

We spent a couple of hours kayaking on the Mira in Milfontes. Two double kayaks, adults in one, teenagers in other. It was great fun and very easy for complete novices to enjoy. The meeting point was on a river beach opposite the town. Carlos was there ahead of time to meet us. He explained clearly what to do and where to go. The equipment was all in good order and the life jackets were clean, with a good selection of sizes. The river is very beautiful and the trip was timed with the tide so it wasn't difficult to make progress. All in all great fun and good value.
