Canoe up the Mira river with the tide and then back down again when it shifts. Away from civilization and floating into a pleasure.

Few would choose Odemira for touring. It's off the beaten track, and a sleepy almost deserted town. But it's close to the beaches and and cliffs (half hour's drive) and it's on the Mira river where these canoe or kayak trips are great. Times so you can go up river when the tide is coming in and down river when the tides are going out, it's a great way to spend 3 to 5 hours. No crowds, and great views,

We canoed with the tide for a few peaceful hours. We saw only a couple boats, but lots of fish and birds. The scenery was beautiful and the canoe enabled us to find quiet and zen. The tide carried us along so the 14 km was not difficult, and the guide provided maps, instruction, and waterproof storage. She even picked us up at our hotel! I highly recommend this trip, as well as the company generally.

We made a canoe tour on the Mira river and we have been surprised by the beauty and the silence of this landscape. After just half an hour we've been supposed in another, in an exotic world, far away from civilization. Rowing peacefully on the river, with the help of the tide, is meditation & exercise (soft) at the same time. The excursions are very well organized by Eco Trail and the stuff is very helpful and friendly. We strongly recomend this tour to anybody, also to families.

The activity is not limited by time and we could go up and down the river on our own pace and made plenty of stops along the way to admire the peacefuul and quiet view along the way. The picnic basket which was provided for extra cost was very good and gave us the oppertunity to enjoy local food on during the activity. NIce and friendly staff!
