Það sem verður gert

COVID-19
To comply with safety measures transport will be limited to 5 people in a 9 Seat Van, and everyone has to wear their own mask inside the van.

Program
Gerês National Park is situated at one and half hour driving from Porto and this is what it will take to be in the heart of the park.

In order to visit this Park we will leave from Porto at 8:00 and we should be there at 9:30, just on time for a coffee in an amazing Spot with the Gerês lagoons as background.

Once in the park we will have an 11 km circular track with a 700 meters elevation gain, 350 uphill and 350 downhill in an uneven terrain, something much more challenging than a normal back-country hiking, so something between medium and difficult in terms of intensity.

For people with experience in this type of terrain, sportive shoes can be enough however boots and walking poles are recommended for people less used to it.

Mid way we will have a deserved picnic in a fantastic spot with a stunning view ;)

We will then start our way down and pass in the most known waterfall in the park, Arado Waterfall, here we will be almost in the end of our hike.

On the way back to Porto we will still have time to stop in Gerês Village to have a coffee and relax a bit

Arrival to Porto will be around 18:30 ;)
Other things to note
Meeting Point will be in the Clérigos Tower at 08:00 AM. If you need me to pick you up in your hotel, please let me know in advance.

Insurance is included for all participants.

Please be sure you are in good physical conditions (not heart diseases, asthma...)

I'm Adriano and together with my hiking friends Miguel and Tito, we are the hosts of this amazing experience in Gerês National Park.

Always passionate about nature and hiking, I started hiking since I was born in Madeira, place where I’m from.

When I moved to Porto, I met Miguel, and together we started exploring Gerês National park a true paradise just one and a half hour by car from Porto, a place still untouched by tourists, reason why I'm sure this will be an incredible adventure in the nature .

Today with airbnb, we decided to host this experience for you, hope you can join us ;)

Adrejano has been the perfect host and the perfect guide for the tour. We stopped for breakfast and coffee with a view first before we got to gerez. We didn’t just do simple tour, because adrejano knows the place very well and guided a personal tour through the park. With the most magical lunch spot. A flower meadow In the Mountain. The highlight was the climbing/ hiking extra tour up the waterfalls. You have to know it’s a hike not a walking tour. Bring proper clothes and trekking shoes. 10km Sound a lot but if you are in good physical conditions you will be all right. You don’t have to be a professional hiker but be prepared for a good tour! It’s totally worth it. Thank you so much, adrejano. I’d say I made a new friend. Would love to join again!

Cette randonnée est juste magnifique, le parc est très bien préservé. Adriano est un guide passionné et passionnant ! Très bonne ambiance et pique nique de rêve dans un écrin de nature sauvage incroyable ! Attention quand même à bien lire la description ce n'est pas une randonnée sur terrain plat ! Bonnes chaussures qui accrochent fortement recommandées. C'était une superbe expérience, Adriano emmène-moi où tu veux X-D La excursión es fenomenal y el parque de Gerês precioso. Ojo que no se trata dar una vueltita sino que se trata de practicar senderismo un par de horas. Eso dicho, Adriano es un guía apasionado y ilusionante. Hubo mucha movida con un picnic a tope en plena naturaleza. En fin, fue la ostia! Adriano lleva-me por donde quieras que todo los caminos conducen a Porto y al cheirinho...

I feel like the first thing I should clarify is that this not a 'walking tour' or a 'hill hike' that you'll able to do in trainers - back-country hiking is in no way comparable to those in terms of it's intensity and terrain challenges, and if you try to do that, you're probably gonna have a bad time. Additionally - Gerês National Park is a good 2-hour drive from Porto, and at a significant change of elevation, so check the weather and dress/prepare accordingly. With that out of the way - wow. This was an absolutely amazing experience, and a definite highlight of the trip my girlfriend and I took to Portugal. We generally try to do some form of hike when we travel, but out of all of them, this one takes the cake. We hiked in February and lucked out with gorgeous weather. Gerês is a beautiful nature preserve in the far north of Portugal and borders Spain, and if you want to you'd like to see the land and landscape of Portugal, this trip is going to be the way to do it. Again - this is a back-country hike, so the experience took us much deeper from the main roads and basic walking routes, and into areas either unused at all, or minimally used by shepherds and ranchers. It didn't go as far as bushwhacking, but you're definitely having to trail-pick carefully and negotiate the terrain. The result is access to the most beautiful natural landscapes you'll find in the country, and an amazing hiking trip that will ensure you'll sleep well in the evening. On to the hosts - Adriano and Miguel were outstanding and generous guides, and their clear and genuine passion for the outdoors is what took this trip to a different level entirely. They kept the trip incredibly fun, trail-picked well, and controlled the pace of the hike perfectly. We had a great time just chatting, talking about the land and hearing their stories, and if we get the opportunity, will absolutely be taking future trips with them. For passionate hikers or outdoors people, I cannot recommend this enough - and for anyone interested in an introduction to back-country hiking, this would be a great trip to introduce you the level and intensity of the activity, while kept in perfectly safe hands. 5/5 stars.

My boyfriend and I like to fit a hike into every trip we go on, and so a visit to Gerês National Park while in Porto was something we definitely wanted to do. The hike with Adriano and Miguel was absolutely wonderful, and we're so glad we chose to do it. It's obvious that they are extremely passionate about what they do, and not only did we have a great day hiking, we also had some wonderful conversation and a lot of laughs. The park itself is stunning, and we definitely wouldn't have been able to explore it so well without Adriano and Miguel to guide us. For the most comfortable experience, go prepared with the right footwear, as this is definitely a hike and not a walk! My boots were 100% worth every bit of luggage space they took up. I cannot recommend this experience enough - the environment is beautiful, Adriano and Miguel are wonderful hosts who know so much about the area, and the trip was perfectly organised and scheduled with a nice break to have lunch and take in the scenery. It was a real highlight of our trip to Portugal. If you're thinking about booking this experience, go for it!
