About your local host


I was born in Madeira island, so I always felt a close connection to nature, and since I moved to Porto I have been exploring every corner of Gerês National Park. First by myself, then with friends, then with friends' friends and it has been already a few years since I started sharing my experience with all adventurers, as a nature guide.

Since I also work as a flight attendant, I am used to be surrounded by travelers, and I love meeting new people and, above all, making new friends.

Até já!

About your experience

Looking for a memorable hiking day trip? Three words: Gerês National Park!

We will meet in Clérigos Tower at 8 AM, and drive an hour and half to reach the heart of the park, with a stop midway to stretch our legs, have a coffee and chat a bit.

During Spring/Summer, with sunny days, we will have an 8km hike which will take us to 10 magnificent natural pools located in the heart of the park. The hike will be divided in 2 stages, 4km from the starting point to the lagoons, where we will swim and relax for 1 to 2 hours (depending on your willingness) and then 4km back to the starting point.

From 15 Oct - 31 st May, with cold weather, it won't be possible to swim in the Lagoons, instead we will go to the hotsprings in Spain (45ºC water).

After the hike, which should finish around 4:30 PM, we will return home and should be in Porto around 7PM.

Please note, this is a shared trip, since the only way to keep this price so low is to share the ride with other travelers. And, at least for me, it is always fun to meet new people.

Also, since we will be hiking deep in the nature, at lunch time we won't have any restaurants around, so please bring your own food. For the forgetful and lazy, we will stop in a bakery before ;)

Join me, and I am sure this experience will be the highlight of your trip.
