Our visitors are provided a unique experience crossing over the River Guadiana from Spain to Portugal on the first cross-border zip line in the world. Along the 720 metres joining the two countries users cross over the river at speeds between 70 and 80 kilometres per hour, literally flying through time and gaining one hour because of the time zone change between both countries.
Participants are transported with their equipment and helmets in groups of up to 8 people in our 4×4 vehicle to the departure platform. When they reach the end of the zip line in Portugal, participants have to walk for about 5 minutes to the Alcoutim jetty where they are ferried back across the river to Spain, with the cost of the ferry being included in the price.
There is no time limit for visiting Alcoutim.
