Price Not Available

Uncover the hidden treasures of the only national park in Portugal during this 2-day adventure. Admire beautiful scenery, jump into a cascading waterfall for a refreshing dip, and enjoy a picnic lunch. Test your courageous spirit as you dare to jump from canyons and swim through narrow passages.

After pickup at your hotel, head north to the majestic Peneda-Gerês National Park and see the fertile slopes of the Ave valley as you hear about the culture of the region. Then follow your expert guide along rugged paths in the park, with more than 128 types of flora including several species of oak and Portuguese laurel.

Delve deeper to one of the most dramatic spaces of the park—the stunning Mata da Albergaria—and meander among alleys of trees to discover a beautiful glen. Continue past the Arado River to the Tahiti waterfall, named for its lush setting, and cool off in its brisk, clear waters. After building up an appetite, savor a picnic lunch and trek to the top of Pedra Bela before drop-off at your hotel.

The next morning, start with hotel pickup for a day of canyoning, stunning waterfalls, and beautiful views. On a scenic drive, hear about the culture and traditions of this side of the country. Depending on the weather, your excursion takes place in either Peneda-Gerês National Park or Arouca Geopark—both are incredibly stunning.

After a safety briefing as you gear up, navigate through a series of narrow passages and streams. Once atop the canyon, admire the beautiful scenery and the cascades plunging into pools. Rappel down waterfalls, go for a refreshing swim, and jump from spots up to 40 feet (12 m) above the water. Then refuel with a delicious picnic lunch and chat about your great day before drop-off at your hotel.
