What you'll do

We will just do what a few brave people from Porto did for 45 years: enjoy an amazing night view in the most exclusive spot of the city!
The only thing that was added is safety and confort...

I will guarantee you exclusive access to the Arrábida Bridge's Arch; since I'm the guy who has the key to the arch (yes, at night I'm the only guide visiting it!), this is a unique and exclusive experience.
We'll go up 262 steps to reach the summit of the Arrábida Bridge's Arch, where a quiet viewpoint lays just under one of the busiest bridges in Portugal.
Up there, we'll have time to enjoy the view with a delicious surprise, and to celebrate the conquer of this national monument.
In fact, this spot was occupied over the years by intrepid youngsters from Porto... the difference now is that we have steps, a handrail, two steel cables and an harness attached to it. This makes the experience suitable for everyone that can go up and down stairs, even if they have vertigo :)
There will be plenty of time for sharing stories about the bridge and taking pictures.
No one can believe it!
Other things to note
If you wish, bring your camera, mobile phone and/or go-pro.
No special clothing or shoes are required, just something confortable (avoid short skirts to confortably dress the harness).

I'm Pedro and I'm a proud Porto guy. I've been working for some years to help in Porto's rebirth, and in 2016, I started Porto Bridge Climb, opening to the public the arch of the Arrábida Bridge.

Olá! I'm David, also from Porto. I was invited to be part of the Bridge Climb's team in 2019 because I was most frequent visitor ever. Yes, I was quite a fan... and I still am!
I have been a scout since I was 7, and this made me like to tell stories and doing cool stuff like sleeping many times in the open air, crossing half Europe on a bus trip (Porto to Prague) and walking the 350Km way from home to Santiago de Compostela. I've climbed hundreds of times to the top of Arrabida bridge's arch, from sunrise to full moon, rain or shine, and and I speciially like it at night for being just like what those intrepid youngsters have done for decades.

Where you'll be

We will meet at the bottom of the Arch of Arrábida Bridge, on the North bank of the Douro River. Then we'll prepare the harnesses and go up the stairs to reach the summit of the arch. The way up takes less than 5 minutes, slowly...
After enjoying the amazing night view and a sip of Port, we'll come back to the starting point with renewed energy to explore the city in the days ahead. See you!

The bridge climbing experience with David was super nice and exciting! I felt completely safe during the whole trip up and down because David did a great and professional job! Enjoying the view up there was an amazing feeling! Furthermore, it was very interesting to get a lot of information about the bridge itself and the city, because David shared it with us. In the end we got two little surprises, what was also super nice and friendly. I really can recommend climbing up there during nighttime, also because the groups are pretty small and it’s an nice atmosphere. All in all it’s a great experience!

Great experience - also excellent value. Access to an area not open to the general public, excellent safety precautions and an exhilarating climb to the top of the arch. At the top you have amazing views of Porto and Gaia. David was really knowledgeable, and with a small group of other guests from around the world we had a great conversation all the way through the visit. You don't need to be super fit to do this (I'm not!) but you are climbing over 260 steps, some very steep so bear that in mind. The view is worth every step though :) Thanks David!

Great experience, we had a really nice time with Rodrigo, who went above and beyond with any questions about the bridge, or anything else in Portugal

First of all, David was perfectly on time to welcome us and make us feel very accommodated to the bridge and the area. At no moment did I not feel safe, as there were many regulations in place to take all of that anxiety off your mind. Lastly, David tells amazing and interesting stories and you feel he is passionate about hosting this tour. I want to thank him for this amazing and unique experience!
