Porto: The door for the best Canyoning spots in Portugal

Porto doesn't come up as a first destination for outdoor activity lovers, but it should.

Especially if you love canyoning as much as I do. I’ll never forget the first time I tried it… the emotion while you’re hanging on a rock cliff, the wind into your face when going down a zipline, but above it all: the song of the river.
All that water flowing underneath you it’s just magical.

I could feel my mind being washed, cleared of all those useless things we are always worrying about. Besides the adrenaline kick, was that feeling of peace and quietness that made me fell in love with canyoning. Since then I never stopped doing it.
Adrenaline is a healthy addiction to keep, even when you’re traveling.

Every time I could try canyoning abroad I did,, but only when I was forced to stay in my own country for a long time I discovered the best spots to do it. Where? Well, I know it can be hard to believe, but I swear: near Porto you can find some of the best spots I’ve ever seen!

Not many cities around Europe can say that they have such amazing places to do outdoor activities. Luckily, Porto is one of them. It doesn't matter if it is in the Gerês National Park, or Arouca: nature is all around Porto and now you can experience it, even if you’re a rookie.
