Description

The Peneda-Gerês National Park (PNPG) is a protected area in the far north of Portugal. It develops between the regions of Minho, Trás-os-Montes and Galicia (Spain), and affects the territory of Terras do Bouro, Melgaço, Arcos de Valdevez, Ponte da Barca and Montalegre. This huge green area of around 70,000ha, where 240 species of vertebrate fauna and 1100 of flora cohabit, together with the Spanish park Baixa-Limia, forms the cross-border park Gerês-Xures. The diversity of the biosphere is distinguished/preserved by UNESCO (2009) as a world reserve. The PNPG is subdivided into 4 mountain ranges - Peneda, Amarela, Soajo and Gerês, and is cut by two large rivers - Lima and Cávado, in addition to the numerous tributaries with their source in the mountain itself. There are more than 500 sites of historical and archaeological interest in the park, with special emphasis on the Roman Geira and milestones - the ancient path that led legionnaires between Bracara Augusta and Astorica Augusta. From untouched nature, to hidden waterfalls that guide us to beautiful lakes, the PNPG offers the most impressive landscapes in the region, and certainly the most immersive experience in the north of the country! On our tour, we will discover small wonders on easy hikes, see secret waterfalls, bathe in crystalline waters and even get to know the territory of the Iberian Wolf. Come and discover this paradise!
