Full description
Head to Gerês National Park on this 10-hour excursion from Porto. Stop for coffee along the way, before arriving in the heart of the park.

On sunny days in the spring and summer you’ll enjoy an 8-kilometer hike that takes you past 10 magnificent natural pools. Stop to enjoy a refreshing swim along the way.

On rainy days and in the autumn and winter you’ll have a 10-kilometer hike in the park, then head to the Roman Hotsprings in Xurés, the Spanish part of Gerês, and relax tasting a green wine. 

As there are no food shops in the national park, it is a good idea to bring a packed lunch. After the park visit you’ll return to Porto.
