What you'll do

Our day is designed to be diverse and for a small group! (max 8 people). Me, Luis or João will start the by picking you up at your accommodation in Porto in a 4x4! From there, we go to the national park (around 90 mim). Our first spot will be the beautiful caniçada lake for a kayak experience! In the heart of National park we will visit ancient villages, stopping in awesome viewpoints or even seeing wild horses (Garranos)! On the village, you will be tasting tradicional local food with the locals, in a friendly and authentic environment. In the afternoon we will make a short hike (moderate walking involved) were we will see some of our favorite hidden spots, were only locals go, like amazing waterfalls or lagoons! Bring your swimming gear! You might end up swimming with the fish (not in a mafia kind of way :P) The driving part will be done in the one and only 4 x4 Land rover to cover for some off tracking in the park, and our trip will end up with the drop off in Porto Come and join us, you won't regret it! Follow the off the beaten path! The national park is a national treasure and a perfect fit for all nature lovers and the highlight of your trip to Porto!

Carla

We are Nuno, Luis e João! 3 Friends that love Nature, outdoor activities and of course, our Gerês National Park. We go to Gerês with 4x4 since we were kids and we know the best spots for kayaking or just relax in hidden waterfalls, but most of all, we know the local people and together we work to preserve the nature and culture of the old villages in Gerês! We will talk more about this during the lunch eating local food with them. Nuno is the artist inspired by nature, João is the Hulk, but green inside and Joao is the smiling man. We are ready to make you love Geres as much we do!
