"Join our Windwise FeelViana experience"

We checked out 'FeelViana' in May 2022 and had an absolutely amazing time, everyone loved it. So much it's now on our annual tour and we feel it's perfect location for our Windwise Adventure Style Trips. So YES we've going ahead with another Windwise Adventure trip in May 2023 - Get on the list now as this is going to fill up! 

 

FeelViana Windsurfing 

FeelViana sits in a large safe bay, with a protected sea wall upwind and open white sands downwind. The predominant wind blows right to left from the north. Depending on wind and swell you can get a mix of super flat water blasting or very accessible manageable waves. You need to be able to waterstart and sail a sub 130L board to sail there. Check out the photos to get a better idea of what's on offer. We had a mix of regular blast and gybe windsurfers, plus some more experienced wave sailors and they all got a lot out of it.

The Coaching

For our adventure style trips, we take things at a different pace, so rather than a full on coaching programme to fill the whole day, we mix things up with other sports adventures if the wind is light and then get to it when the wind is in. As ever, you'll still get the expert advise, Windwise skills training but it's not as intensive as some of our more clinic style trips. So this works well for those wanting coaching but not a full on week of it or those who have done numerous other Windwise sessions with us and want more of a top up. Plus is is ideal for those traveling with non-windsurfing partners and want to have a mix of windsurfing/coaching and holiday time. As ever, we look to find the balance to suit what you're looking for.

 

FeelViana LifeStyle & Sports 

FeelViana hotel is really something special. It's nestled in a wooden nature reserve and the atmosphere is very chilled and relaxed. The hotel is open plan with great views, chilled out seating decking areas, poolside drinks on large sofas, truly great food/staff/service, local imaginative dishes, inventive cocktails and one of the best breakfasts you'll ever have in a hotel. We tend to do a mix of eating in at FeelViana plus we'll take you to some local eateries in Castelo de Viana that offer incredible value for fresh local food that you'll only want more of. Delicious fresh fish, seafood platers, local meats and an abundance of tapas style dishes. I'm getting hungry just writing about it! 

 

Biking 

In the mornings the wind is always light, so you can either chill, go surfing, SUPing or there's some stunning bike rides that you must try. Either flat river ride to Ponte Del Lima, the oldest town in Portugal or coast paths that stretch as far as Spain. for the more energetic we'll take you off road into the hills with incredible views, windy scenery and unforgettable downhills. It was absolutely fantastic riding, with both MTB or e-bikes to help you explore even further!
