Moderate Terrain with Challenging Sections: 4-7 Miles Daily
The northern reaches of Portugal exude a rural beauty unlike anywhere else. Exploring them by foot is a true privilege. You’ll begin in the spellbinding province of Minho, a rich patchwork of soaring slopes and emerald-green terraces criss-crossed by ancient, rugged shepherd trails that link tiny secluded stone villages. On these contemplative trails, your solitude is part of the adventure as Garrano ponies, Barossã cattle and a shepherd tending his flock may be your only companions. Your pathways then point to the Douro River Valley, where vintners have been producing Portugal’s prized port wines for generations. Traverse gentle downhill slopes past lush vineyards and the elegant wine estates. Pause for a glass or two while taking in breathtaking vistas. And marvel at scenic vine-laden slopes from the celebrated river during a private boat excursion. Along the way, join local guides on informative walks through historic Guimarães, birthplace of Portugal, and Porto, one of Europe’s most authentic cities. This is Portugal at its purest.
