Day 1: Saturday - Arrive and meet the team. Airport transfers to your apartment where after a drink and cocktail the staff will introduce themselves and the week's activities, an opportunity to meet all the participants.
Day 2: Orienteering, canoeing and cycling. Leaving the accommodation the first challenge is to find the small harbor with a help of a map in the old part of the village where the canoes are waiting for you. You will have to cross the river Mira trying to reach several points marked on the map. On the other margin we go walk and refresh ourselves in a waterfall. At lunchtime we will have a Mediterranean meal in the pinewoods of the Milfontes estuary. After lunch we will follow a gentle track along the coastline starting close to a lighthouse: untouched nature, amazing scenery.
Day 3: Surfing. An active and enjoyable day at the beach. Plenty of exercise and good fun. The Portuguese coastline is widely known for the quality of its waves breaking onto clean beaches. A full day of tuition will even enable beginners to get"stoked up" when standing for the first time. You will want more.
Day 4: Canoeing, family building games and photo orienteering. Our starting point is Moinho da Asneira in the margins of River Mira where we will be surrounded by nature. We will start the journey with a sedate downstream canoe trip to Zambujeiro Velho, a real chance to interact with the local fauna and flora. At lunch time we will have a barbecue and after: more action! We have prepared a pitch for a healthy competition between families. You will have to be fit, to run, jump and do an all bunch of funny and interactive exercises to conquer the victory. Otherwise we have an orienteering game to offer you the opportunity of “achieve” (known) the most popular and cultural places, in Vila Nova de Milfontes, by photos and interact with the local persons.
Day 5: Free day or optional activities. Today you decide! There is a huge range of activities available locally including games competition between families, horse riding, rent a bike and surfing. Alternatively, you may just want to simply relax by the pool or on the beach.
Day 6: Abseiling, Climbing and Zip Wire. We move away from the water to try our hand on zip wire, climbing wall and abseiling. Our instructors will make sure you get the most from your new experience. Lunch included.
Day 7: Multi activity day. We go into a stunning spot set in a steep sided river valley. You will discover this magic place by yourself. We will give you the details to explore the track until the natural Lagoon. But first you are going to “wake up” by doing some suspended abseiling from a bridge called “sunset”. Along this journey you will have the opportunity to build a raft and test your handy work on the water, swim in the lagoon and jump from a rope swing. For lunch we will have a fantastic Menu. Farewell dinner in the evening.
