Had a great time! Miguel is a very animated and fun guide, sharing lots of fun stories and such along the way. The park itself is very impressive.. majestic, scenic views. There's also a quaint village (where u start your hike). There you will also find a small bar and restrooms; so you can have a coffee and buy some food/drinks before setting off. It was very, very hot on our day; nevertheless, I think most people who are more or less active (and wearing appropriate clothing/shoes) will manage fine on this hike. Swimming in the lagunes is lovely; could have stayed all day, if it were up to me. There are other people there as well (mostly Portuguese locals actually), but because you get there relatively early in the day, you'll be able to find a good spot for your towel. Our group had a great click as well, and we made plans to meet up the following days as well. Definitely recommended!
If you’re in Porto, it’s a must. Can’t recommend it enough. It’s a lovely walk and hike to the Seven Lakes, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip. Adriano is a brilliant guide. Very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. He also has more than one exciting surprise along the way. Be warned, chances of breaking out in spontaneous karaoke are real.
It was a great day and good company. Our guide Luis was super friendly and made us feel very welcome. Kayaking is an amazing part of this experience. Beautiful nature, lots of fun, tasty food and you are recharged:) I would definitely repeat this experience!
Great experience I would highly recommend it. The hikes were light and pretty, the food was great, and the tour guide was amazing. They really care about the local community and want to support it, but not overload it with tourists.
Great day in the beautiful Peneda-Gerês national park. Fit a lot of activities into the time and our guide Luis was great and very knowledgeable!
