What you'll do

We're going to introduce you to the world of Stand-Up Paddle Boarding while exploring breathtaking scenery in the Algarve, Portugal.

Our full-day river SUP is going to take you into the heart of the spectacular Vicentine Coast Natural Park in the western Algarve. With unspoilt habitat, protected wildlife and outstanding scenery, for us, there is nothing better for the senses than Paddle Boarding along the parks pristine rivers.

From our meeting point, we will drive to our favourite launch location. We will begin our experience with an introduction to SUP on shore. Once everyone is afloat, I will be right alongside to encourage everyone to their feet and build your confidence on the boards with lots of useful tips.

The big appeal of SUP is the ability to travel and get to places and this is a great opportunity to experience that very sense of adventure. As we take the final sweeping bend around the sandy dunes and towards the mouth of the river, prepare to catch your breath! Some of Europe's best kept secrets are nestled along the Vicentina Coastline. With dramatic backdrops and unspoilt beaches, we are offered the perfect opportunity to pull-up and indulge in a wholesome picnic.

If you are feeling enthusiastic and the conditions allow, this is your chance to have a go at wave-riding by SUP!

Be sure to reserve enough energy to paddle back to the SUP truck!

I am an ASI qualified Stand-Up Paddle Board instructor and along with my wife, Holly, we have founded Nowhere2far Stand-Up Paddle Boarding experience in Lagos, Portugal.

Born explorers and lovers of nature, our background has ranged from sailing the oceans to cycling the world!

It was in the turquoise waters of Jervis Bay, Australia, that we discovered Stand-Up Paddle Boarding and immediately saw the potential to strap a dry bag the deck and start exploring from a whole new perspective!

When we stumbled upon the Algarve a few years later, we had found our paradise.
