Limite Zero, a new zipline connects Sanlucar de Guadiana to Alcoutim. A privately funded passion project of Englishman David Jarman, the 2,362-foot-long zipline (called “la tirolina” in Spain) crosses the Guadiana River at 50 feet above sea level.

A 4×4 takes you to the departing platform, set near Spain’s San Marco Castle, and in less than a minute, you arrive on the Portuguese side. And since both, Spain and Portugal are a part of the Schengen Zone, there are no customs or immigration controls between the two countries and they have an open border.

Speeds can reach up to 45mph (72kmph). A short walk from the destination post takes you to Alcoutim village, where a small passenger ferry awaits anyone who needs a ride back to Spain; fare is included in the €17 per person price.

Limite Zero is located in Sanlucar de Guadiana, in Spain and opening hours are 10am-2pm and 4pm to 8pm. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
