Owner description: Adventure is our middle name and we like people to have a taste of it. Hiking, jumping and swimming in breathtaking clearwater views, kayaking in unpoluted waters, canyoning in the best rivers is what we do best. We connect you to mountain's traditions with an insider view in Peneda-Geres National Park, considered world heritage of biosphere by UNESCO and it is the only one in the Iberian Peninsula, with a maximum rating of parks (Word Wildlife Fund). Our proposal is more than seeing Geres, it's FEELING and be PART of IT...

Hi all! I and two of my Italian friends came in Portugal last August and in the hostel in Braga proposed to us a magnificent ride in the park of Peneda. We had already heard of Oporto adventure but certainly did not expect a day so amazing! We left the jeep sling and I seemed to be in the movie "Ace Ventura", emotion fantastic! Once in the park we went to see the first waterfall and natural pool then the first of the day! Here we have baths, photos, and smile a lot! The place is beautiful, like being in another world! After that we moved and we went for a pleasant ride on horses! Rest assured you go plan and horses are very sweet and comfortable! At about 13 we stopped in the village and we had a bountiful lunch of delicious things of the place! Soup with black cabbage, chicken cooked in a lot of ways, white melon and ham, a lot of tastes, everything good! In addition to its excellent beer place: the legendary SuperBock! After lunch we headed to another area of the park to the north, we went to see a breathtaking view and then we walked about 40 minutes to get to 5 km from the Spanish mountains and see what? A paradise! A natural pool that would be fantastic desire to dive to anyone! Diving, swimming, sun, photos and lots of laughter for an hour! Eventually we got back to the jeep and we had the last group photo on top of the car! The music has accompanied us during the return trip! The guides of the trip are fabulous! Friendly, welcoming and full of sunshine! It 'was one of the most beautiful days of my life and my friends think the same. So come on, what are you waiting? Go quickly and do it!

it was incredible. truly. one of the best experiences of my life!
just have comfortable shoes, swimming suit and good attitude. they pick you up at the hotel in the morning and drop you off at the end of the day.
horse riding in tiny rural village, swimming under waterfalls ..... when the guide says they provide a small lunch, its not really accurate though.... they provide a FEAST. food never ends:) :) local cuisine at its finest, you will never taste anything like that in the city. while walking, try to stay close to the guide, so you can hear the interesting facts about waterfalls, burned forest, portugals history, tasty receipes, etc.......
just take a minute to stop on the mountain top, take a deep breath and enjoy....life
doesnt matter how many days you are staying the area, make one of those days an adventure with sergio. you will be sorry if you dont

Me and my brother were really impressed with carla and the tour. The sights were amazing, the waterfalls were great swimming and the lunch was tasty. One of our best days spent in Portugal. Highly recommend. Would be hard to find the spots on your own

We went on the "Geres tour" and it really was everything that we hoped for and more. The park in general is beautiful and the specific sights are nothing short of spectacular. Also the two guides Carla and Sergio are both very friendly and passionate about the park as a whole. We definitely recommend going on this tour!

The day was crazy! We were not sure at the beggining, you know sometimes how tours can be, you pay a lot for something very touristic...BUT the is clearly the opposite! You have soooo much for your money! I told everyone I know to go there when they go to Portugal! So now I tell you! YOU have to go! You will have a wonderful adventure for low price!
