Whether it be trips on the Mira River, promenades, fishing in the river or sea or customised walks, Duca is the perfect partner for taking home an unforgettable experience in a region which is stunning in itself.

T he river trips are made between Milfontes and Odemira on the Mira River that enjoys the reputation of being the least polluted in Europe, covering several kilometres of natural landscape, through clear water river beaches and marshes teeming with life, where you can observe different species of birds. Midway along take the opportunity to have a refreshing swim in this delightful river.

Make the most of the fluvial connection between Vila Nova de Milfontes and Odemira and combine the Fisherman’s en Rail with the Historic Way of the Vincentian Route in a surprising manner.

If you just want to take a boat trip on the ocean, you will get the chance to get further away from the coast, approaching Cabo Sardão, where you will be able to observe the mythic cliffs where the white stork makes its nests.

The fishing takes place mainly in the waters between Ilha do Pessegueiro and Cabo Sardão. There, the wide fish variety together with the great landscape can make an unforgettable fishing day. Planned for families with children, river fishing offers the same thrill but in a totally controlled environment.

You may also choose a night time boat trip, a time when, turning off the boats lights, the sensations of the night can be fully felt, or alternatively the option of a calm sunset trip, when the colors change with an exciting rhythm allowing us to imagine how the day will be reborn the following morning.
