Full Day Tour to Serra da Peneda

By Montes de Laboreiro
This tour through Serra da Peneda takes you to discover incredible landscapes and historical monuments. Full day circular tour within the Peneda-Gerês and Gerês-Xurés PN, here we will introduce you to a small territory of the only National Park in Portugal. We will visit the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Peneda, viewpoints overlooking the horizon, granaries built hundreds of years ago, hot springs and Roman bridges. The final destination of this tour will be Castro Laboreiro, a typical inland northern village that practiced transhumance - moving from winter locations to summer locations and vice versa - known for its culture and historical monuments, such as its Roman bridges, the Castle and wonderful waterfalls. The ex-libris of this village is its dog with the same name, an autochthonous breed of dog and endemic to Castro Laboreiro - the Castro Laboreiro dog.

      Great out of your comfort zone experience!
      I'm traveling with my family and our nanny for our son who is 13 and autistic. I knew getting him to go was going to be a little bit of a challenge but we got up there and checked in anyways. He has a bit of a meltdown but was able to rally. Duarte & Helder didn't worry, they allowed us space to get Bradley on board. They are a star team. It was very cold in the river and they kept us moving and going thru the obstacles. Our son did great and the entire family had a fantastic time. It's definitely a starter course and great for all levels of comfort. If you don't want to do something, there is a path around. I highly recommend this experience for families and want to again give a big thanks to Duarte and Helder.

      Fabulous fun for the family
      Fantastic fun for the family. The team are amazing. Friendly, helpful and well organised. We actually did the intermediate canyoning and it was excellent. A couple of good jumps into rock pools plus some abseils. We had 4 adults and 2 teens and we all really enjoyed it and would do it again. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

      Canyoning trip
      We did the intermediate canyoning experience and were guided through the incredible experience by guides Helder and Duarte. The experience was incredible and we saw beautifull parts of nature as we rapelled, jumped and swam across. The guides where very patient, made sure that we felt safe and that we had an amazing time. Would reccomend!

      Memorable experience
      We had an amazing time. Clear explanations and guidance in a relaxed atmosphere. The surroundings were stunning and Filipe and Duarte were always ready to help. Very exciting experience overall, with 5 and 8 meter-high jumps and rappelling under a waterfall. Facilities to change and have a shower afterwards were a plus. Good advice of other local tips. Totally recommended, obrigados!

      Highlight of our family trip to Portugal
      We spent one of our four days in Porto doing this activity as a day trip, which was well worth it. My kids aged 10, 11 and 14 all loved it. Beautiful scenery, and the experience was amazing. The instructors Felipe, Duarte and Francisca were amazing, friendly, spoke English excellently and always made us feel safe whilst thoroughly enjoying the experience. We did the 10am session which meant leaving Porto at 7.30am (we drove in our rental car) and got back for around 6pm after a short stop for a late lunch in Guimares which was a great day out. So grateful to the team!

      Great experience. Capable guides. Wonderful time!
      It was a great experience. Just being in the water surrounded by nature. You feel so alive during and after. Helder and Filipe were very good guides, capable and nice people. Good instructions, we felt very safe and confident to try things out of our comfort zone. Like take jumps in the water from 8meters high! :) Definitely would come again to do canyoning with them.

      Great experience!
      Great experience for all ages. We were a mum and daughter (12) and although our daughter has done canyoning before, this still kept her interest and wasn't too easy. Beautiful walk/scramble/swim following a local river, including a couple of jumps (one pretty high!!), a rappel and several slides. Very good, capable and kind guides, thank you Helder and Filip! We were supplied with excellent gear including decent water walking boots. Highly recommended.
