Kayaking in Peneda–Gerês National Park!

Kayaking in Peneda–Gerês National Park!

The best thing about landing in Porto is to visit the north of Portugal!
Peneda-Gerês is the one and only National Park in Portugal and it is just about an hour and a half away from Porto.

Settled in 1971, it was the first protected landscape area in Portugal, with a preserved fauna and flora maintaining it's cultural traditions for centuries in this mountainous region. It's one of the places in Portugal where you can find the most authentic villages, with traditions and practices lasting until the present day.

There are so many things you can do in the park,  like exploring with a 4x4, canyoning, hiking, wild swimming, paddling or learning our culture directly from its source: the locals.

If you choose to join us at Oporto Adventure Tours, we can assure you that you will do more than one activity in a day!

Our purpose is easy peasy: we want you to start loving Gerês as much as we do!
Do you like kayaking? It is so easy and fun that you don't need a great physical condition or Kayak training to do it. Peneda-Gerês National Park is your green getaway in the Oporto area!

Right now you are thinking: kayaking is the same in every part of the world. But what makes Gerês special?

It's a unique landscape, namely the green mountains, the golden sand in the fluvial beaches, the white bridges, the fresh air one breathes and the pleasure of only listening to our own heart and the row oaring in the brisk water.

Close your eyes... and imagine yourself surrounded by natural beauty.

Rowing down the streams and stopping by a fluvial beach far away from everything and everyone and then swimming and relaxing. Isn't that what you're looking for when you think of your holidays?
