What you'll do
You`ll walk along one of the most beautiful walking trails in the world: the Paiva Walkaways! The Paiva Walkaways were the winner of the World Travel Awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018! It is a 8 km boardwalk through ruggedly beautiful scenery in Arouca Geopark, a UNESCO Geological site. After the walking, is time to get back the energy you spent with a delicious traditional lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant. Another highlight of your day! Afterwards, is time to relax in the beautiful and romantic city of Aveiro – the so called “Portuguese Venice”! It’s time to board on a “moliceiro” – the traditional boats of the Aveiro canals – and get to know the city through its canals. We`ll wander through the old quarter to see the main buildings of Art Nouveau, the fish market and taste one of city`s delicacies: soft-eggs. Our tour carries on towards Costa Nova to visit the magnificent fishing village with its wooden houses in bright striped colours.
Hi! I was born in Amarante, heart of the Green Wine region, I have a degree in History and International Relations and I love to travel. I have been in more than 50 countries so far. Crossed the African continent overland, did the longest train journey in the world, from Porto to Vietnam. I also have done volunteer work in Mali, Uganda and Kenya and wrote a book called "África nos Sentidos". So, I'm someone passionate about people, cultures and gastronomy! And as I love the history, the food and the culture of my own country, being a tourist couldn't be more prefect! Feel yourself invited!
