About this tour

Eco-Friendly Boat Tour in the Algarve

Enjoy the natural beauty and tranquillity of Ria Formosa on an eco-friendly boat tour. Explore the sheltered waters of this protected lagoon in the Algarve on a 1-hour boat ride around Faro.

Powered by solar energy, our Ria Formosa boat tour is as eco-friendly as possible, and Lands is run by trained biologists who carefully plan out the experience to completely negate any environmental impact. Discover Ria Formosa onboard our solar-powered electric boat; this really is the most relaxing way to discover this protected area.

This Ria Formosa Tour is Perfect for Families

This boat tour in the Algarve is the perfect family outing. Explore and enjoy the sounds of nature with your local guide. This eco-boat tour is arguably the most sustainable way to experience the beautiful Ria Formosa lagoon — one of Portugal’s most impressive natural areas. In fact, by taking an eco-boat tour, your visit will not leave any negative impact on the environment. Our solar boats don’t spill oils or produce pollutant gases and our trained guides know how to travel through this beautiful area without leaving any trace whatsoever.

Visit the lagoon of Ria Formosa and its marshlands with a friendly local guide, approaching many bird species and learning more about the wildlife of this protected area without disturbing it. If this sounds like a brilliant time and you’d like even more options, check out our sunset Ria Formosa boat trip or perhaps our Ria Formosa birdwatching tour. Join us at Lands for the most eco-friendly and relaxing way to discover the fabulous Ria Formosa. Learn more about this lagoon and all the wildlife on a small-group boat trip limited to a maximum of 10 people. You’ll find more specific details below, but please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
