Outdoor Activities with Porto.CARD
Start the year in the best way by fulfilling some of the wishes you have put on your 2023 Bucket List. Start planning your trip to Porto now and go on an unmissable adventure! The Invicta city, with the Douro River, the Atlantic Ocean and its multiple parks and gardens is the perfect destination for outdoor activities, even with the adverse weather conditions that are sometimes felt at this time of year.
Porto is known for having a very steep slope, which may seem like a problem for those who like to explore the city by bicycle, but don't let this fact intimidate you! In the riverside area you can rent a bicycle for 6 hours, with Vieguini (10% discount) or with Biclas & Triclas (10% discount) and plan your own route. We suggest that you go from the waterfront to Foz, an incredible route with an even better view.
If, on the other hand, you would like to discover a little more of the city’s history without worrying about having enough stamina to go up and down the hill, embark on a guided bike tour of the historic centre on an electric bicycle, with Bluedragon city tours (15% discount). Let the bicycle take you to the most iconic places effortlessly.
Bluedragon will also enable you to combine fun with culture, through a Segway tour (15% discount). This alternative transport will allow you to visit the city effortlessly, while the local guide takes you to discover the alleys and monuments of the Invicta city.
The famous 6 Bridges Cruise is one of the most iconic and authentic activities to do in the open air. Although most prefer to do it in the summer, the cruise is still one of the best activities to do even when it's cold, in addition to the fact that there is less movement, thus managing to avoid the crowds on board. If by any chance it is raining, don't worry, you can stay comfortably inside the boat, while watching the wonderful banks of the Douro River. Tomaz do Douro (20% discount) will be delighted to welcome you on board.
If you are travelling with your family, visit Santo Inácio Zoo (25% discount only in individual tickets) which offers several attractions to all its visitors, regardless of age. Did you know that the Santo Inácio Zoo is considered the largest and greenest zoo in Northern Portugal?
This time of year is ideal for surfing, when the waves are perfect and the beaches are practically deserted. If you've never tried this sport, but it's on your list of new experiences you want to have in 2023, Fish Surf School (15% discount) and Surfaventura (15% discount) will teach you how to catch the best wave! The location couldn't be better, Matosinhos, a great spot for beginners in the sport.
