X'se tagħmel

We meet with people in Coimbra or Torres do Mondego around 10am. There you can leave your car and we organise transportation to Penacova.
In Penacova we give all the material and some small safety briefing. Around eleven we start kayaking. I will accompany you by kayak and guide you. We will make different stops on the beaches of the Mondego river. On each of those beaches we will talk about the animals, fish and plants we find along the valley. We will have a stop for picknick and a swim. If you want, we can also stop on a bar along the way for a beer or a snack.
Around 16.00 we arrive back at the meeting point.
Bring sun protection, extra clothes, water and some cash for the bar along the trip!

Hi, We are Rita and Jonas. We are from Penacova, and Rita is a Biologist. Penacova is well-known in Portugal for its fabulous kayak trips through the Mondego valley which are organized by O Pioneiro do Mondego since 1988. We worked as guides on this trips for many years. Now we combine these two passions. Rita guides people on the kayak while teaching them about the ecological wonders (and troubles) of our region. Combine a day of relaxation on the water and beaches with some new insights on our fauna a flora!
This trip is for everyone, excellent for couples and families with kids. The 18km trip takes from 10.00 to +- 16.00. We provide your transport from Coimbra!

We stop at different natural riverbeaches which are unaccessible from the main road. The valley between Penacova and coimbra itself is so green, the hills and views are spectacular. No beter way to explore it than by kayak.

We met Rita in a car park in Coimbra and she then drove us to another area to pick up another couple of people. From there we drove alongside the river until we got to our starting point. We had a fantastic easy going and very chilled day gently paddling down the river. We had a couple of stops, one for lunch on a river beach and then a final stop at a bar. We had beautiful weather and company so glad we choose to go kayaking today. Thank you Rita and your two helpers (sorry I don’t know your names)

O passeio foi realmente além das minhas expectativas! O Rio Mondego possui uma energia incrível e diferentes paisagens, uma mais linda que a outra. Foi minha primeira descida de caiaque nesse rio e eu estava um pouco apreensiva, mas a Rita me tranquilizou desde o inicio e me acompanhou durante todo o trajeto! Fora a troca de conversa, energia e experiência que tivemos enquanto desciamos o rio. Surreal! Um passeio que eu recomendo para todos e que irei repetir com certeza!

I can highly recommend this experience. It was our first time kayaking and Rita was supportive and helping us understand how to paddle effectively. She was accompanying us all way long and we were talking about nature. The route is really cool and that’s probably the best way to see local woods from such a unique point of view as the river. It’s mentioned in the description that a pair of shoes that may get wet are necessary and that’s really true not because of water splashes as I thought, but due to the fact that you need to step in the water when parking a kayak. Also, if you’re a first-time kayaker, you may fall into the water, so take that into account and don’t keep things in your pockets but put them into a special waterproof bucket attached to your kayak. Overall, you will not regret taking this kayaking trip!

You should definitely do this trip if you come to coimbra, no matter the time of the year as long as you are prepared with waterproof equipment! If it’s a sunny day even in autumn you don’t really need waterproof clothes. You get to se the stunning countryside of coimbra, and understand the nature that surrounds the city. It is truly a magical place and transports you to another world. It is really refreshing, and the journey does not require expertise although if it’s windy you do need some arm strength, unless you do a shorter journey! The river takes you really, and you barely have to do any effort unless there is strong winds 💕

What a perfect day! Jonas was very helpful in setting everything up, and the actual experience was given by Rita who was really fun, friendly, and professional. We were very lucky to have nice weather even at the end of October, and were the only ones on the river... a great time of year to go. Rita was professional and knowledgeable but not at all overbearing, leaving my wife and I to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a gorgeous place at times as well. Can't recommend enough!

RITA! You were so amazing and I feel so lucky I got to do this experience with you! Not much was said about the flowers etc. But that’s ok! An amazing beautiful experience!
