Alquevatours is a family project founded and run by Humberto Nixon, a geographer and defender of the Alqueva. With the help of his team, Humberto offers tours and activities all year round by boat and on land, including Alqueva With History and On the Alqueva Lake with lunch in the village of Luz.
Alquevatours is a family project founded and run by Humberto Nixon, a geographer and defender of Alqueva since 1980 who has closely followed the evolution and multiple dimensions of this immense project.
The immensity of the lake, its flora and fauna, the history of the local people and places and the proximity to the charming town of Moura all made Humberto a firm believer in the value of the lake.
He launched his first boat in the dam in 2008, setting out on an adventure in a region where tourism activity was still in its infancy.
Today his passion for the area has only grown and is shared by an entire team.
Every day the discovery and exploration of a lake with 1160km of shoreline, supported by the Guadiana and its tributaries, are a source of inexhaustible inspiration for Alquevatours.
The tours offered include Alqueva With History; Lake, River and tributaries; Sunset with a Glass of Antão Vaz; and Accessible Alqueva. The company also offers boat rentals among its diverse range of experiences, programmes and services on offer every month of the year.
