It may come as a surprise to you, but Portugal is a rather mountainous country, specially in the northern half. This trip will start on the northernmost part of the country and will go around some of the top-10 highest mountain ranges in mainland Portugal, passing through remote villages where time seem to have stopped and magical places where nature is still untouched. The altitudes along the route will regularly go above 1000 mts (3330 ft) and will reach a maximum of nearly 2000 mts (6660 ft), with numerous off-road tracks and mountain passes offering breathtaking views as far as the eye can see.
Winter is known to be rigorous around some of these regions, so it’s likely that snow-capped mountains will be on the menu, but so will be the warm meals, a fireplace and the cosy accommodation at the end of each day. During this trip we’ll be staying in selected B&B’s and/or mountain huts, providing guests with an almost Alpine feeling.
For those who appreciate the big vistas and the sort of environment only the high mountains can give, regardless of the outside temperatures, this will be an amazing experience and an excellent opportunity to discover some of Portugal’s best kept secrets.
