Aquatic hiking is recent in Portugal. It’s a hike, but through riverbed. In order to comfortably enjoy this activity, TransSerrano will provide the participants with wetsuits. You will be able to observe a spectacular environment, rare species of tress such as Prunus lusitanica, and also river birds, such as the Grey Heron, the White-throated Dipper or the River Kingfisher. The possibility of seeing otters is rare for this mammal is quite elusive, but the marks of its presence are abundant.

The silence and straight contact with nature are the highlight of this activity. It is a unique experience in a magnificent river.
