Make the most of your visit to the Portuguese city with this Aveiro Salt Fields Tour, located at the river banks. Discover the secrets to the city's salt production.

Aveiro Salt Fields Tour

At the time of your choice, we'll meet at Estrada da Ria and head to the Aveiro salt mines, one of the most beautiful landscapes in the region. While we wander around the fields we'll learn about how the process of extraction is carried out for one of Aveiro's most important products. 

During the tour, we'll discover more about the "marnotos", the people responsible for extracting the salt by hand using wooden utensils, and the "salineiras", those responsible for transporting it in wicker baskets to the boats. In fact, these trades are so symbolic in Aveiro that in the very centre of the city there are two statues paying homage to them.

We'll also find out about salt's therapeutic properties, how it is used in different sectors including cosmetics and gastronomy, as well as how the salt mines ecosystem has developed.

Salt Fields Tour + Salt

At the time of booking, you can select the option that includes a souvenir, 200 grams of sea salt and 50 grams of Portuguese 'Flor de Sal', two products you'll discover on the tour.

This option is only for a minimum of 2 people and the group must be an even number (2, 4, 6, 8, people etc.).
