Full description
Head to Gerês National Park on this 10-hour excursion from Porto. Stop for coffee along the way, before arriving in the heart of the park.

On sunny days in the spring and summer you’ll enjoy an 8-kilometer hike that takes you past 10 magnificent natural pools. Stop to enjoy a refreshing swim along the way. As there are no food shops in the national park, it is a good idea to bring a packed lunch. After the park visit you’ll return to Porto.

From September to May, visit the waterfalls, followed by snacks and a local green wine. On the way to Porto, visit the Braga Monastery and ride the world's oldest water elevator.
