What you'll do

An epic swimming tour in one of the pearls of Portuguese territory, the Berlengas Archipelago.

Located off the coast of Peniche, it is an oasis rich in natural heritage, classified as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

This ocean adventure takes you to explore part of the south coast of the island, showing you the best kept treasures, tunnels with more than 50m in length, dozens of small caves with crystal clear water (only accessible by swimming), with a contact very close with the local fauna.
