ARRÁBIDA SEA KAYAK TOUR
An hour drive South of Lisbon lays Natural Park of Arrábida, a mass of limestone hills rising over the coast, where the river Sado joins the Atlantic.
Covered by a patch of old farm fields, vineyards and ancient Mediterranean scrubland, these hills meet the sea in a breathtaking cliff drop of over 300 meters.
