Full description
Depart from the convenient meeting point in Porto and head to the Peneda-Gerês National Park, the only national park in Portugal and the best place to go for a hike. Travel around 1.5 hours from Porto along with your experienced guide as you head to the heart of the park to a trail designed to be a bit tougher but much better than other trails. Embark on an 11km circular track with 700m elevation gain (350m uphill and 350m downhill) on an uneven terrain, something much more challenging than a normal hiking trail. Take in views of the national park’s lagoons, the Cascata do Arado waterfall, and villages as you go. Midway through the trail, stop for a well-deserved picnic in a fantastic spot with stunning views of the surrounding scenery. Afterwards, begin the ascent and end the trip with a drop-off back in Porto.

The trip was worthwhile! It was a pleasent to go on a trip with the tourguide adriano. He will take you on adventure for old and for young. I take the trip by Converse shoes and nothing happened, but never the less I would recommend sturdy shoes and long trousers. You will have a nice view and as always at the end comes the best: a wonderful view of a waterfall! I can definitely make a recomendation!
