Iberian Lynx Hike
Did you know that in the area of Silves they run a conservation program to save the Iberian Lynx from extinction? Well, they are doing an amazing job and we are going to check it out! Of course without interrupting the animals.
We combine this spotting of the Lynx with a nice hike into the hills of Silves and around the lake 'Barragem de Arade'.

We will tell you all about the area and the fauna we come across. And of course you will learn everything there is to know about the conservation program and the life of the Iberian lynx cats.
