Albufeira Adventure Park

Posted on | April 13, 2012 | 4 Comments


While in Portugal with our kids this past summer we had plenty of sun days and pool days and even a couple of beach days but we got to the point where we were all done with lazing in the sun. So what did we do instead? We went zip-lining at the very fun Algarve Adventure Park in Albufeira. This turned out to be an excellent choice for our group of kids ranging in age from five to 15.

After the friendly and helpful French instructors kitted us out with harnesses and gave us necessary safety instructions we were off – with the littlest leading the way.

My niece, C, at 5 and diminutive, was fearless on the ropes. All the trails at the park are color-coded by height and ability which was helpful for steering the younger kids to lines they could safely manage alone.

Or sometimes with a helping hand from their older cousin.

Head on over to DeliciousBaby for more travel-themed Friday photo fun.

    Did you do the ropes course too? I just did one and it will also be the last time I do one!

    Hah! I see you stopped in the MAG store in Phonsovan! We were just there last week, one of our favorite and most educational stops in Laos. I think my kids are learning history inside out from the way we learned in school!

    What a coincidence – I was just reading about this adventure park in the Algarve and was considering stopping there this summer when we’re nearby! Thanks for the tips!
