Feeling Ria de Aveiro

On board of a moliceiro or a sailing boat you will have the most exciting experiences that can be had in the Ria de Aveiro. The Ria, formed in the sixteenth century by the meeting of the sea and the river Vouga is one of the most exclusive and stunning pieces of Portuguese coastline. To know all this lagoon universe, sail aboard the most colorful and unique Portuguese boat – the moliceiro. In this boat you will know the main channels of the city of Aveiro and travel in time where this was used to collect and transport the “moliço”, an aquatic plant once used as agricultural fertilizer. To witness even better the natural and historical breadth of the Ria de Aveiro and the intrinsic connection of these people with the sea, visit the award-winning Ílhavo Maritime Museum and its exclusive Codfish Aquarium. Approaching the Atlantic coast and passing from the calmer waters to the more agitated ones, discover the beaches of Costa Nova, Barra and São Jacinto aboard of a sailing boat. Feel the breeze of one of the most amazing landscapes in Portugal, in a nautical experience so unique and so close to you!
