Peneda – Gerês National Park is perhaps the most exciting destination for local and international tourists specifically for nature lovers. We will pick you up at your accommodation at about 9 am and take you out for a day to remember! This tour will show you the most amazing spots of the Peneda Gerês National Park while details about the local traditions, flora and fauna are given by our guides. The park was created in 1971 and since then it has been the only one of its kind in our country.
