Find out if it is your vocation to be a millionaire Formula One driver, and discover the excitement of go-karting in Évora, Portalegre, Santo André or Serpa. In Évora you can also choose one of the parachuting schools and pluck up your courage to throw yourself from three thousand feet above the city walls for the experience of a lifetime.
Or simply glide over the plain in the wicker basket of a hot-air balloon, gazing in wonder at the land basking in the orange colours of the sunrise.
Another option is to enjoy the waters of the Alentejo: its reservoir lakes are excellent for jet skiing, windsurfing and water-skiing; the calm water is also great for a full day's canoeing.
Various parts of the region are suitable for paddling a canoe, from the Sado to the calm waters of the Guadiana.
Back on terra firma there is no lack of action either, since you can go mountain biking or horse riding along unknown trails and around the winding lanes of the villages.
In the Alentejo, you can even experience the emotions and sensations of Africa on a real savannah. In Santo André have a photo-safari adventure in Badoca Park and get a close-up view of tigers, giraffes and zebras.
