Meet your guide near the Faro airport at a predetermined time or at your Algarve hotel for a pickup (if upgrade selected). Then begin your birdwatching tour by Segway at Ria Formosa Natural Park.

First, listen to a safety briefing that explains how to operate your electric self-balancing Segway. Then, strap on your helmet and cruise to Ria Formosa Natural Park, while savoring scenic coastal views along the way. See the Park’s marshes, freshwater lagoons, and tidal flats that comprise this important tranquil habitat. Learn about the hundreds of species that live here during spring and autumn migration periods.

Traverse nature and wildlife surroundings along smooth trails and paths. Then, zip over to Ludo for the park’s best birdwatching. Gaze into your binoculars and scan lush ecosystems for vibrant rosy-pink flamingos and purple swamphen preening their plumage. Listen as your guide explains how the park’s system of barrier islands communicates with the sea and makes a perfect home to its feathered inhabitants.

Continue birdwatching in the Algarve while searching for more unusual species and rare specimens until your 1.5 hours comes to a close. Then, drop off your Segway and return to your departure point.
