About

Take your mind of daily life during this hike across the entire Peneda-Gerês National Park, the sole Portuguese national park and an extraordinary UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

This adventure starts in the easternmost area, in the Mourela Plateau, embedded in Barroso (recognized as a FAO’s Globally Important Agriculture Heritage System) and it continues crossing the Gerês, the Amarela and the Peneda mountains, ending in the Castro Laboreiro Plateau. You will follow centuries old pilgrims’, smugglers’ or shepherds’ trails that takes you deep into this breathtaking granite scenery.

Along the 11 stages you have the opportunity to explore both the most remote areas and the rural ones, enjoying both the wilderness and rich cultural heritage of this territory. For every 3 days hike, there will be a 1 day gap to allow you a break to restore your muscles.

A local guide will accompany you at all times, and a second one will be nearby, to ensure a relaxed and pleasant hike through the complexity of the Peneda-Gerês landscape, enabling you to enjoy it’s fauna, flora, geodiversity, villages, monuments, history and culture.
