Extending over 892 kilometres makes it the fourth longest river in the Iberian Peninsula. Sit down, on a comfortable spot on the “Jasmim Flor” as we depart to leisurely cruise along the waters. Listen as the insightful guide gives fascinating explanations and stories about the surrounding areas we float past. Admire the lush green backdrops and incomparable landscapes, perfect for relaxation and contemplation. This tour starts by boarding our beloved “Jasmim Flor” cruise ship at the Vila Real de Santo António quay, following a 2-hour circular cruise on the Guadiana River, along the Spanish-Portuguese border. We start sailing down river, in front of Vila Real, until its mouth. Then, we invert the direction and sail up, passing by the medieval village of Castro Marim and the salt pans, spread over the natural landscape, where water birds nest among the reeds. Next, Ayamonte, the International Bridge and the new touristic developments of Costa Isuri and Castro Marim Golf are the following places to be appreciated. A unique opportunity to spot some of the differences between Spain and Portugal. Two countries so close, yet so different in their traditions. Around noon, and back on land, it's time to start the guided tour of Vila Real de Santo António through the city's historic heritage. This stimulating physical and intellectual exercise is followed by a tasty lunch in one of the city's many typical restaurants. After lunch, you can spend the rest of the afternoon as you like - wandering around the streets of the town, doing some shopping or stroll around the charming marina - as long as you’re back to the starting point at 4 pm, ready to be taken back to your accommodation.
