Want to explore the only Portuguese National Park?
Come with us!
We will pick you up at your accommodation at about 9 am and take you out for a day to remember! This Detour will show you the most amazing spots of the Peneda Gerês National Park while details about the local traditions, flora and fauna are given by our guides.
The park was created in 1971 and since then it has been the only one of its kind in our country. More recently, in 2009, it was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, status that reinforced the protection measures taken to keep the beauty and natural importance of the region.
The total area of the National Park covers around 70 000 hectares, therefore it has many hidden gems and picturesque locations for you to explore with us.
Along your day you will be able to visit several landmarks of the park, including the famous Tahiti Waterfalls (Fecha de Barjas) where you can enjoy a refreshing swim and the Pedra Bela Viewpoint which has an incredible view over the whole landscape.
Our guides have local knowledge and will take you through a trip deep inside this natural paradise with all the safety and plenty of fun.
Picnic in one remote idyllic location is included!

I for one, completely recommend this tour or even one of the more adventurous tours they can provide. We were picked up at our hostel, and dropped off too. Drinks and snacks were provided as well as an incredibly delicious Portuguese lunch, that also catered to my vegetarian friend!
