Full description

Explore one of the most unknown treasures in Portugal and discover the nature of Gerês-National Park during a small group tour. The itinerary can be altered to make the best of the weather conditions in winter and summer. Leave your accommodation in Porto in the morning and travel to the Gerês National Park in an air-conditioned Land Rover. After around 90 minutes, arrive to the heart of Gerês. Imagine fantastic green lagoons where you can swim and relax, hear the sound of the waterfalls and see amazing rainbows. Visit an old village, where you will meet the locals and enjoy a traditional Portuguese lunch with local green wine (included). Explore remote areas of the park and enjoy the breathtaking valley. During your exploration, if you're lucky, you might even see the wild horses (Garranos). End your visit to Gerês at one of the most impressive viewpoints in the region.  After a full day enjoying the best spots of Gerês National Park, relax on the trip back to your Porto accommodation, arriving in the early evening.

This tour was full of pulse-pounding moments for me: the anxiety of being driven along a narrow path along a steep mountain, the shock of jumping into a frigid lagoon beneath a waterfall, the hike back up the trail. Less "exciting" but still totally worth it were exploring the small town of Fafião, having a delicious lunch, and getting to know the other passengers on our tour. Miguel and Katarina were fantastic guides. Even though the afternoon was rainy, it was still a great experience overall, and one I'd recommend.

Diogo is a fun person, very attentive and makes interesting conversation. The trip was a good introduction to the National park for future visits. Personally, some stops were a tad long for me and one could easily fit in another stop. This was good value for money. Generous lunch portion and good company. I would recommend this trip

We had a great day! Our guide Diogo was wonderful . We had two spots to go in the lagoons and the second we were able to stand right under the waterfall . The small village and the lunch was great . It was very peaceful after being in the busy city of Porto . There was only two other people at the last waterfall , where we had time to relax , so it was very peaceful .
