Further info about the tour

The tour will start close to the Trancão river mouth and will follow the river up until Alverca along Póvoa’s walkway.

For about 5,5 km of walkway, that crosses several natural and semi-natural habitats, such as meadows and abandoned salt works, and always along the estuary edge, you will see dozens of bird species, namely Flamingo, Spoonbill, Avocet, Ringed and Grey plovers,  Redshank, Bar- and Black-tailed Godwit, Herons and several other wader species.

The Osprey can often be seen in winter as well as Bluethroat, Reed Bunting, Common Waxbill and Yellow Wagtail, and other passerines.

At the end of the tour we will visit the “casa avieira” and the fishing art traditions of the region’s fishermen.
