About

Spend few incredible days hiking the Peneda mountain on this crossing of the westernmost area of Peneda-Gerês National Park, away from the beaten track and tourist crowds.

Hike 2 + 2 days in the Sierra with one day off to restore your muscles, being accompanied by an experienced guide and a second one close by, who will share his knowledge on the area as well as guarantee a safe, relaxed hike.

We designed this 63 km (39 mi) crossing so you could have the chance to learn how the mountain shaped the local culture exploring ancient Summer and Winter villages, as well as other human markings that are prof of a delicate balance between man and nature.

You’ll have the opportunity to visit Sistelo, a cultural landscape classified as national monument with its beautiful terraces spread throughout the slopes.

This is a perfect opportunity to hike ancient shepherds’ and pilgrims’ trails and reach peaks for privileged views over valleys, rivers, reservoirs.
