About your experience

Looking for a secret paradise outside Porto? Get ready for a deep dive in portuguese culture, nature and gastronomy!

A truly culturally immersive experience awaits you: old traditions, breathtaking nature and delicious local gastronomy.

We will meet in Mondim de Basto at 9h00, and drive until a little local cafe at "the gates" of Alvão Natural Park, where we will have some local pastries and coffee or tea.

We will then have a quick hike until we meet the local shepherd, and hike with him (and his goats),

Then, we will keep hiking up to Fisgas de Ermelo waterfalls, always surrounded by untouched nature and magnificent landscapes.

We'll then get back to the local sheperd's little cafe and enjoy a picnic, full of local treats and, of course, wine.

Join us, and you will have an unforgettable experience in paradise.
