Full description
Explore one of the most unknown treasures in Portugal and discover the nature of Gerês-National Park during a small group tour. The itinerary can be altered to make the best of the weather conditions in winter and summer. Leave your accommodation in Porto in the morning and travel to the Gerês National Park in an air-conditioned Land Rover. After around 90 minutes, arrive to the heart of Gerês. Imagine fantastic green lagoons where you can swim and relax, hear the sound of the waterfalls and see amazing rainbows. Visit an old village, where you will meet the locals and enjoy a traditional Portuguese lunch with local green wine (included). Continue to one of the most beautiful and unknown lagoons in Gerês National Park: the blue lagoon. Explore remote areas of the park and enjoy the breathtaking valley. During your exploration, if you're lucky, you might even see the wild horses (Garranos). End your visit to Gerês at one of the most impressive viewpoints in the region.  After a full day enjoying the best spots of Gerês National Park, relax on the trip back to your Porto accommodation, arriving in the early evening.

Felix was an amazing tour guide. We did some hiking. If you are not ready for that this is not for you. The hiking was all worth it, after the hiking we arrived at our first swimming spot and the water in the river was emerald color. The water was cold but amazing. Then we ate at a Portuguese village and head out to another hike to another part of the river. This second spot had a waterfall. It was amazing. Thank you Felix for an amazing trip. We loved it!! Best of luck

We had the absolute best time in the national park! Moderate fitness required. Stunning scenery, local food is absolutely delicious and the water is some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen! The activity actually gives back to nature and we were invited to help water the trees that they are currently growing to help maintain the national park. We were told last year they planted 200 trees! A beautiful way to give back to the National park Also we loved our guide Ines! She was an absolute treasure! So much fun! So educational! Really took care of us!
