Hiking through the Serra de Freita

Serra de Freita is part of the Geological park within an hours drive of Porto city. It belongs to the Unesco Global Geoparks Network. The park is therefore known for its unique geological phenomena such as the Pedras Parideiras, or birth giving stones, its spectacular rock formations and the 246 feet high waterfall. The Serra de Freita covers the highlands of the park. It’s a beautiful place where nature still prevails. We will select trails to hike through the park tailored to meet your requirements and interests. For example, we can do a round walk to the base of the waterfall, or stay on the higher ground or even visit some old villages where time seems to have stopped a century ago. It is a beautiful area where you can see a lot of interesting things. The cattle roam freely, turning for home by themselves at the end of the day. You can also encounter shepherds directing their sheep and goats to the best pastures. At the end of the hike we’ll taste some of the local cuisine.
