Come share a day of authentic Portuguese experiences! This all inclusive private tour of Gerês is full of nature, history, and tradition in the unique region of the Peneda-Gerês National Park.
We will exit the motorway and head off the beaten track into the heart of the mountains. We’ll pass through villages lost in time, where flocks of sheep and wild Garrano horses freely roam – this is Portugal at its most spectacular.
The inhabitants of this region have, over several centuries, developed a unique mountain culture. You’ll feel a long way from the hustle and bustle of the city as you absorb the revitalising beauty of these wild natural landscapes.
We’ll visit viewpoints hidden among the slopes and dams, which will take us to enjoy the dramatic verdant valleys of the Campo do Gerês.
Your guide will provide an overview of the pre-Romanesque culture and ethnography of this ancient region as we continue taking in the mesmerising landscapes of the National Park.
Then, aboard a horse-drawn carriage, we’ll journey along mountain roads, waterfalls, and villages. Enjoy some peace surrounded by pristine countryside.
At lunch, we will delight ourselves with traditional mountain flavours in the tranquillity of a small village. Discover quintessentially Portuguese dishes made of the freshest seasonal ingredients.
We’ll then discover the Shrine of São Bento da Porta Aberta, Portugal’s second most important pilgrimage place. This excellent historical site attracts 2.5 million visitors each year.
To finish the day in, we will relax with a refreshing cocktail made from regional products. We’ll be surrounded by the river and mountain landscapes of unparalleled beauty as we unwind.
