Step by Step

By joining this tour to Peneda-Gerês National Park, you will experience an immersive journey into the nature, culture and traditions of northwest Portugal. You will depart from Porto in a comfortable and luxurious private vehicle, exclusively for you and your group, with return transfer included to your accommodation in the city.

You will spend a day exploring this protected area with its lush forests, green mountain ranges, waterfalls, Roman roads and pastoral villages, ideal scenarios to disconnect from the routine and merge with the harmony and unique essence of the region.

Among the most beautiful places that you will be able to visit when travelling through the Serra da Peneda and Serra de Gerês, the following stand out:

  • Ecomuseu de Barroso: this space is dedicated to preserving the culture and nature of the municipality of Montalegre, so, by visiting it, you will be able to learn about local development.
  • Fojo do Lobo de Fafião: see the old wolf traps dating back to the 18th century, a Cultural Heritage of the region, reflecting what life in the countryside was like back then.
  • Cascada Fecha de Barjas waterfall: marvel at the beautiful and paradisiacal waterfall known as Tahiti, located in the surroundings of the village of Ermida, fed by the waters of the Arado river.
  • Cascada da Rajada waterfall: to find it, you will have to walk about 2 km through Ermida. When you get there, you can enjoy a natural waterfall while observing the incredible panorama of the Gerês mountain range.
  • Ermida viewpoint: you will be 550 metres above sea level to contemplate the most incredible panoramic landscape of the trip, with a glimpse of the mountain massifs and meadows.
  • Mirador das Rocas: from here you will get an equally impressive but different view, from a 360-degree perspective of Portugal's landscape.
  • Arado Waterfall: one of the idyllic postcards of the route is the Arado Waterfall, bathed by the Arado River, which will make you feel in a real paradise of crystalline waters.

As an optional extra, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious typical lunch with wine, dessert and coffee for an additional cost. On board the vehicle, you will have free wifi, refreshments and bottled water.
