Holidays in Gerês? Absolutely

Explore a variety of experiences for families to make the most of your getaway in Gerês. Discover services designed with nature in mind, ensuring an excellent family vacation. Enjoy memorable adventures in the heart of nature, offering an unbeatable quality-to-cost ratio.

Gerês is perfect for road trips with family, couples, or friends. With every turn, you’ll encounter waterfalls, viewpoints, and wild animals, making it an enchanting adventure. Although the park’s vastness allows for spontaneous exploration, we suggest two ways to spend one day in Gerês to maximize your time.

Option 1: Discovery Road Trip

This option is ideal if you love scenic drives and exploring hidden gems.

Start with a visit to the village of Lindoso. The journey itself is beautiful, and upon arrival, you’ll discover a picturesque mountain village. Visit the Lindoso Castle and traditional granaries (canastros), and marvel at the stunning view over the Alto-Lindoso dam.

Next, don’t miss the Aquis Querquennis Roman Baths. Located in Spain, just 30 minutes from Lindoso, this spot is more spacious and pleasant than the well-known Lobios thermal baths. It’s a must-see, especially outside the summer season.

End your day back in Portugal at the famous “Pontes de Rio Caldo.” Here, you can enjoy the marina with its restaurants and terraces, and even take boat trips or engage in water sports, especially in summer. Additionally, visit the Sanctuary of São Bento da Porta Aberta, only 5 kilometers from Rio Caldo. This is a significant and traditional place of worship in the region.
