Alto Minho Tour & Peneda-Gerês - Private

Sightseeing Tour

The Minho, the north region of Portugal which borders Spain, is where you can find the Peneda-Gerês National Park. It’s a vast territory with some of the most amazing views on the country and an extremely rich natural and historic patrimony.

We know that some people are unable to complete long hikes, so we suggest a tour where you will be comfortable and still get to know the national park and the Minho.

Beginning in Porto/Braga, we will visit the Bom Jesus sanctuary (in Braga) which has a functioning hydraulic funicular since 1882, in other words, a cable railway moved by water.

We will visit many sightseeing spots and forests inside the national park, going through mountain roads with panoramic views of valleys and lakes.

After lunch we will head towards Castro Laboreiro, and maybe walk to the castle on top of a high hill. Here, a place almost frozen on time, you will see many traditional villages of the north of Portugal, where people keep traditions like agriculture and cattle raising alive. You will also see the Espigueiros in Soajo, a structure used to stock and dry corn. At last, we will go through Ponte de Lima and see narrow streets and an ancient Roman bridge. It is also a place of reference for gastronomy in Portugal.
