Description

Walk along the Paiva Walkways with a knowledgeable guide, traversing the gorgeous landscape along the Paiva River and enjoying the impressively built, mesmerizing walkway. Enjoy hiking while surrounded by beauty before sitting down to lunch at Alvarenga and for drinks at a local distillery.

Get picked up from your Porto hotel and travel to the trailhead for the Paiva Walkways. Along the way, talk to your guide about life in Portugal and learn a few interesting things about the country's history and traditions.

Once you arrive at the trail, embark on a 5-mile (8-km) hike along impressively built walkways running along the Paiva River. Admire the incredible scenery and become immersed in the natural wonder as your guide points out areas of geologic, natural, and archaeological interest.

At the end of the hike, enjoy a fabulous lunch at Alvarenga, serving the best meat in Portugal. Savor Posta Aroucaquesa, a delightfully prepared cut of grilled beef. After lunch, finish the day at a local distillery, where you can enjoy Pinguça, a Portuguese liquor.

Promenade facile (avec de bonne chaussures) et très agréable, surtout hors saison (peu de monde et météo magnifique)..

Lovely scenery all the way and a sunny day to enjoy it but very hot without shades for majority of trail and no resting places with seating...after about an h the pleasure goes away and all you want is to get to the end...our guide john was a very knowledgeable and nice.... i would recommend doing half the trail which i dont think you can on an organised trip like ours...it is longer than 8km and stairs all the way!!!
