We were picked up promptly at our hotel in Porto by Pedro. My sister in law and I were the only people on the tour. Pedro was well educated and during the drive we talked flora, fauna, and politics! Pedro asked us what we were interested in and I stated I was most interested in the Iberian wolf and being out in nature. Due to this interest and evaluation of our degree of fitness, he decided going to a shepherd corral was a good choice. We had an incredible hike up into the mountains to a remote bog and shepherds hit. . The hike was steep and a bit rocky, but we were in capable hands. The views were amazing. We saw wolf tracks and scat! Then a lovely local lunch with wine and more food then we could eat—bean stew, steak, bread and cheese and cod fritters. We then drove around the park a bit, seeing waterfalls and milestones. The end was great—a soak in a hot springs in Spain with a full moon, Jupiter and Venus on the horizon. This trip is highly recommended.
Great day spent in the Peneda-Gêres National Park. An excursion that lived up to our expectations. Hiking for several kilometers, 4x4 tour, typical regional lunch. Swimming under a waterfall was a real plus. My mom had no trouble keeping up with the pace and really enjoyed it. Our guide Pedro was particularly warm. He takes great pleasure in showing us around his region and passing on his knowledge to us. I highly recommend !
Pablo was a great tour guide. He explained all the wonderful things and said a lot about nature. We even saw wild horses and boars !!! The tour is highly recommended! thanks
