What you can expect
Uncover the hidden treasures of a natural paradise as you explore the only national park in Portugal. Absorb breathtaking views and tropical scenery, jump into a cascading waterfall for a refreshing dip, and enjoy a tasty picnic lunch while reflecting on your adventure.
Begin your day with a convenient hotel pickup before heading north toward the majestic Peneda-Gerês National Park. On the way, see the fertile slopes of the Ave valley and hear about the traditions and culture of the region. Once you arrive, follow your expert guide along rugged paths and let your exploration start.
With more than 128 types of natural vegetation—including several species of oak and Portuguese laurel—there's plenty of flora to admire. Delve deeper and reach one of the most dramatic spaces of the park—the stunning Matas de Albergaria—where you can meander along its alleys of trees to discover a beautiful glen.
Continue past the Arado River to find the Tahiti waterfall—named for its lush setting—and embrace the opportunity to cool off in its brisk, clear waters. After building up an appetite, dig into a picnic lunch before trekking to the top of Pedra Bela and hear about the traditions and culture of the region.
