The walkways was a novel way to tour the geopark. Though quite long at 8 kms, we were not so exhausted as the wooden structures were nicely built. There were some uphill climbing but they were manageable. The bridge was awesome! It was a bit frightening at first but once you get the hang of it (pun intended) it’s like walking an ordinary footbridge with a spectacular view all around. The walk back was a lot easier. Our guide at the bridge did a wonderful job assuring us about the safety of crossing. I would definitely recommend this to those who are seeking a different way of exploring nature. Our guide Joao Pacheco of Detours was nice and kind enough to help my elderly aunt on the walkways. And the lunch was sumptuous and really filling too!
The day trip was great! The transfer to Arouca as well as the hike itself worked without any problems and could also be arranged flexibly. In other words, if you want to skip the bridge or don't want to hike any further after the halfway point. The food in the restaurant was also very tasty and there would also have been a vegetarian alternative. Luis, the guide for our day, accompanied us wonderfully and gave us a lot of historical and geographical information! I can only recommend this day trip!
Good transportation and excellent meals. Crossing the bridge was a spectacular experience and the hiking was along a well maintained and beautiful path. Our guide knowledge, competent, and very friendly. We had a wonderful day.
Everything was great from the beginning. Andre drove us safely to our destination and was very pleasant.
It is an excellent trip. An adventure of one in a life time. I recommend it to all ages.
