Detailed description

Romantic sunset in a sailboat: cruise on the Tagus in Lisbon

In historic Portugal, the Tagus flows along its winding path through the breathtaking Atlantic mountain scenery of this country, through stony and sandy valleys past green hills, picturesque mountain villages and cosy towns. After a long, wide bend around the old town of Lisbon, it flows into the Atlantic waves. This famous river appears in many traditional lyrical works and still serves as a lifeline for many villages. It is the longest river in Portugal, although only its last quarter is within the country's borders.

On this cruise on the Tagus with a sailing ship, you will experience the Portuguese capital in the colours of the sunset, reflected in the Tejo with the city's lights and a fantastic play of light and shadow on the big screen of nature. Pass famous sights such as the Tower of Belem, the Monument of the Explorers, the Castle of Saint George and many others. Your trip on the Tagus will take you past Belém, Alcântara, Cais do Sodré and Alfama. Experience the bustling city with its multifaceted architectural styles from many centuries of history and different cultures from the perspective of the river in the dwindling orange sunlight. You can take in all these impressions relaxed lying on board in your memory, but the experienced skipper of the sailing ship is always happy if you are interested in his craft and would like to be involved in the operation of the ship. Learn to read the wind and water, align sails and take over the rudder. In an exclusive small setting of a maximum of 8 persons plus skipper you travel on the Tagus for about 3 hours through the romantic magic of the sunset until the last glow before the light sinks into the sea behind the horizon. The skipper awaits you with drinks and selected Portuguese appetizers on board.

Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.
