Visits to the Horta da Formiga are available from preschool onwards, and each group shall have a maximum of 25 children. These visits last approximately one hour and a half. As this is an outdoor activity, the children must bring comfortable clothing and footwear, a hat, and sunscreen.

Due to technical reasons, only one visit per period (morning/afternoon) is possible, and visits depend on weather conditions.
For your own safety, when walking through LIPOR's facilities, you must always stay on the routes marked for pedestrians, as you are inside an industrial unit with intense and constant circulation of heavy vehicles and industrial machinery.
