About
This tour takes you to one of our most requested destinations – Alcoutim – by one of the best relaxing forms of transport: our upgraded cruise boat Jasmim Flor. The trip along the Guadiana River, the natural border between Portugal and Spain, takes around 2 hours. Relax on-board soaking up the scenery and tranquillity. In the past, the entire border region of the Guadiana lived from smuggling and it was based on this activity that we chose the name of our tour. A knowledgeable guide will tell you all about those smugglers and will take you along Alcountim’s landmarks. After this guided visit, you have 2 hours to yourself, perfect for a little shopping, lunch, a swim in the river beach, or a quick visit to Sanlucar (Spanish side of the river) and perhaps even a ride on the international zip line over the Guadiana River. We leave Alcoutim around 3pm and sail back to Vila Real de Santo António, where transport is waiting to take you back to your accommodation.
