First of all its more then a SUP experience its 2 to 3 hours of Stand Up Paddle, at the same time its the share of knowledge and Portuguese culture, and a little bit of my life experience with you, then we taste good food, sight seeing, away from the mass tourism a real Portuguese day. will pick you up from your hotel or meeting point in Lisbon (depending on the distance between adresses), and together we'll take an incredible trip to Setúbal near the Nature Park of Arrábida, 40 minutes away from the city. Arrábida is located between the fishing villages of Sesimbra and Setúbal. It's a place of incomparable beauty, where the blue of the sea contrasts with the white of the limestone cliffs and the green of the dense forest that covers the mountains. After we arrive, I'll teach you how to standup paddleboard and we'll head out along the coast, stopping at marvelous beaches. Afterwards we'll have lunch at Albufeira Lagoon in a family house that use to be a restaurant 35 minutes away from the mountain, where the food is made from ingredients the cook collects in her backyard. Then we'll return to Lisbon at 15:30 16:00 filled with stories, adventure, good food, and new memories.
I'm a lifeguard, bodyboarder, and have been a nature lover all my life. Over 10 years ago I became a standup paddle board instructor. I love showing my country and city to everyone I meet. It gives me a chance to exchange experiences with people,and because of my degree in tourism and more then 20 years of experience in the area I will take them to places where tourists don't always go, to experience the real Portugal.
