Take a look at our Nature & Adventure Tours
In the north of Portugal are located two of the biggest mountain ranges - Gerês and Barroso - which are the most fantastic place for nature lovers to discover while staying in our beautiful country. Close to the Spanish border, its rugged hills are home to deer, wolves, and golden eagles.
With tracks off-road, ancient roman places hidden in the middle of the forest, submerged villages, endless landscapes, and of course, a lot of delicious delicacies to taste, this is definitely one of the must-see places, just 1h15 away from Porto city!
Its trails include a Roman road lined with landmarks. The 7th-century spa of Gerês is nearby and Lindoso is a traditional parish with a medieval castle and stone granaries.
To the north, the 19th-century Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Peneda is at the top of a huge staircase. This is the mountain we are going to explore with a geologist guide, a 4x4 vehicle, and hike or horseback on trails with thousands of years of existence.
Having lunch on a terrace top in the mountains is part of the highlights of this fantastic nature journey through the mountains which hides secret places, natural patrimony, and adventure challenges for all tastes!
