What you'll do

Gaze at mesmerising waterfalls, hike to mountain summits for sweeping panoramic views, and understand local traditions, discover secret spots and learn about the native wildlife from your guides on a full-day tour of the Peneda-Gerês National Park.

At around 9am, you’ll be picked up from your accommodation and driven deep into Portuguese backcountry, far from any tourist gloss and busy streets, to Portugal’s only national park.

Peneda-Gerês National Park is a living museum. A swathe of fragrant pine forest draped over huge granite massifs, secret peaks offering beautiful views, tumbledown granite villages nestled in one of Europe’s last remaining true wildernesses, it’s a must-see on your trip to Northern Portugal.

Your guides will take you to some of the most remote and beautiful spots in the park, using their local knowledge to show you places like the Pedra Bela Viewpoint, a spot that gives you a sweeping view over the entire landscape.

Hike through 12th-century granite villages, virtually unchanged since their construction, past bubbling streams and to secluded, cascading waterfalls for a refreshing dip in the cool waters.

Enjoy a picnic deep within the park, surrounded by the tranquil atmosphere where only the whispering pine branches and countless birds make a sound.
