On the phone Anke was very helpful and explained everything in detail. She also gave her recommendations of what she thinks was best suited for us. Very kind.

On location we had Lisa which together with her colleague did a great job explaining what the route was and how to manage the kayak! Very much recommend for a nice and pretty relaxing activity. We took a 3h trip with a stop to eat. One way was very easy with the wind and water stream at our back, on the way back, a bit headwinds but nothing too serious, very manageable with our kids (12,15).

Thank you for a nice afternoon!

We were looking for something spontaneous to do in the area. We wrote ecotrails at 22:00 at night to make an appointment for the next day and got an immediate answer. Anke, the owner, was so nic
e to organize us a canoe trip for the next day at 9am. We were able to canoe up the river and spend a good 4 hours enjoying the scenery. There is a lot of wildlife and the peacefulness is just amazing. We took a swim in the river and spend a romantic morning paddling through nature. Definitely recommended.

Great experience. We (2 adults, 2 children, 3 and 6 yrs old) paddle 3 hours until high tide. Made a great break at the river. Had a swim. And paadled back with the low tide, aroznd 1,5 hours. Beautiful scenery, some goats, sheeps, hours and donkeys at the banks. Flying fishes, turtles, heron and dragonflies. Thanks to Anke.

We did a morning canoe trip from Milfontes to Casa Branca and loved it! Anke and her team are very friendly and extremely helpful and the organisation was really easy. The scenery along the river was varied and beautiful, and the trip was very peaceful. We will be back to do another section of the river soon!

Couldn’t find the place! We tried we google maps and apple maps, came to the village and nothing! After 1h decided to go to the beach instead. A shame, we were looking after this adventure.
