Évora - Cycling along the eco-trail  (half day or full day – up to you)

This is a trail built on top of an old railway, which is only for pedestrians or cyclers.You will cycle through farm land and you will most likely find cows, sheep and beautiful horses. The eco trail starts very near the farm, and you will do this tour on your own.We suggest you take a picnic with you, and take as long as you feel like!Leaving the eco trail for a few kms you can visit a lake and cycle along it, or visit a lovely hamlet with traditional architecture.

Évora - Canoeing trip

We will leave the farm in the morning, after our gorgeous breakfast, and take you to a really nice flat river. You ride in our jeep, and we will take some country side dirt roads. Our drivers/guides are extremely careful and very knowledgeable, and you will learn a lot about the cork trees, the olive trees and the olive oil along the way. Arriving to the river we will do some canoeing (don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe!)and, if we are lucky, see some herons, storks or ducks.On the way back the Monte do Serrado staff drop you off in Évora, where you can have lunch and spend the afternoon visiting the lovely city. They will pick you up later.
