Hiking, Walking and Cycling
Not only can you hike and explore the amazing Peneda Gerês National Park but also thousands of kilometres of old farm tracks and paths to walk as well. There are some very well marked trails and walks. Amongst these are the Ecovias which run along the Rio Lima from Ponte da Barca all the way to Viana do Castelo on the coast, or from Sistelo at the start of the Rio Vez, all the way along its length to Arcos. Below you can find links to some of the trails and also a link to the national park website. We have books and maps which you can use to find your way around. There are also many little maps available at the park office. There is an excellent website (http://trilhos.arcosdevaldevez.pt/) with an interactive map of the various trails in the area. If you would prefer to ride a bike, you are welcome to use one of our bikes. To download some free guides before you arrive just click on the pictures below.
