Perfect for Wine Lovers


Explore wonderful Arade river & visit an amazing wineyard, with an exclusive guided tour and wine tasting.

On this unforgettable tour we combine the natural beauty of the Arade River in our comfortable solar powered boat, with a visit to the Arvad vineyard, its cellar and 3 wine tasting with tapas.

During the tour, you will enjoy the wonderful landscapes between Portimão and the vineyard (near Silves) in our solar boat, without annoying engine noise and you will feel in communion with nature and perfectly relaxed.

When we arrive at the vineyard's private pier, the electric caddy will take us on an exclusive visit to discover Arvad wine, which is based on fragments of Phoenician amphorae, growing between the remnants of memory and the horizons of Silves.

After the visit to the vineyard and wine tasting, we will sail back to Portimão, through the waters full of history and many charms of the Arade River, honoring the past and the future, without leaving any impact of pollution on nature.

Join us on this amazing sustainable wine tour!

Great trip up the Arade River to Silves

"Really enjoyed this trip from Portimao to Silves on a silent solar powered boat. Good commentary from Pedro punctuated with a lot of humour. Peaceful trip, followed by an hour and a half in Silves to sight see. Fascinated by the storks nesting on top of the many chimneys from Portimao to Silves, very normal in Portugal but interesting to us. Just the right length. Highly recommended."
