We wish to welcome you to Portugal and to this new website, CANOESPRINTPORTUGAL, where you can get all the information about the upcoming and past canoe Sprint events that will take place in Portugal.


Finally, after decades of persistence, Portugal lived up to its odd conditions for canoeing and the lovers of our modality can already count on a course endowed of the necessary conditions and infrastructure to welcome international events. The European under-23 and junior were the world premiere of canoeing in this course, that in 2013 received also one of the best European Canoe Sprint Senior Championships ever.
In 2015 we will start with ICF events, with a World Cup in may and in july the World Championships Junior & U23.
For 2016 we will host another World Cup in Canoe Sprint and the highlight of all of this will be the Seniors World Championships in 2018.

The beautiful and hospitable town Montemor-o-Velho, 130km from Porto, 230km from Lisbon only 25km from Coimbra and 18 from Figueira Da Foz, is the chosen place!

The city of students Coimbra or the beach city of Figueira da Foz are the two cities able to write most of the delegations that we are happy to receive. It is in Montemor-o-Velho under the gaze of the ancient castle that the Portuguese National team has evolved in the last few years and that formations from all over the world come to prepare for major competitions.

We are blessed with sun almost all year around, a mouthwatering gastronomy, hospitality like no other and a tremendous desire to show everything that makes Portugal a country loved and appreciated in the world.

Although small and far from having financial and human resources desired the Portuguese Canoe Federation will do its best to make your experience in our country is unforgettable and that you will be left with a wish of returning.


We count on you! Count on us!
See you soon.
