Geres National Park by 4WD with Picnic Lunch

About This Oporto Tour
If you're looking for stunning natural beauty and the wonders of Mother Earth, there's one place you should add to your list in Portugal: Peneda-Geres National Park. This place is something special!
Ready to experience Geres? Your friendly GoBe guide will meet you at the pier with a four-wheel drive transport vehicle. After a 75-minute drive, you'll set off on a course for an unparalleled nature excursion. You'll explore the best Geres has to offer, including the Arado Waterfall. This is the biggest waterfall in the National Park, with several levels for viewing, depending on your climbing ability and courage.
Adventures can be relaxing, too. Enjoy a picnic far away from the hustle and bustle, within the remote regions of the park. Sample traditional Portuguese snacks like croquettes, codfish fritters, custard cream cake, and delicious Portuguese bread, along with water, juice, beer, or wine. Check out the spa village tucked inside Geres, where people have been sampling the waters from the hot springs since Roman times.
See how the people of Geres live during your visit to the tiny village of Ermida, where many traditional aspects of life still hold sway. Then head up to the area's best-known scenic overlook, Pedra Bela, where you can see miles of mountains and the breathtaking Canicada reservoir. At the end of your idyllic day, you'll yearn to return to Peneda-Geres National Park.
During your visit to Geres, you may find yourself strolling along a path when suddenly you notice strange tracks in the dust. Are they horse tracks? Can't be, they don't bear the usual imprint of a horseshoe. But your first instinct will be confirmed as you encounter the beast who has left such familiar, yet strange, markings. Come face to face with the wild ponies of Geres, the Garranos. They are an ancient breed, with ancestors depicted in cave paintings. Enjoy viewing these endangered creatures in their natural habitat.
