Hidden and isolated for many years, the northern parts of Portugal have maintained their original identity and today are probably one of the country’s best kept secrets. This is a land of small villages lost in time and old legends that go back to the birth of the nationality in the 12th century, the celts and even the romans. Along the route, you’ll see castles and forts from the medieval times and drive across villages where the most genuine of community traditions still live on in perfect harmony with nature.
The north of Portugal is also one of the most mountainous parts of the country with nature offering visitors some amazing views over the hills and the river valleys. The Douro is the biggest river in the region and is famous worldwide for having the oldest demarcated wine region in the world, where Port wine has been produced for more than three centuries. Being at the heart of the Douro, we can’t leave without trying this nectar of the gods.
This trip is a concentrate of diversity, natural beauty and centuries-old traditions. Accommodation for this trip will be in good quality campsites and the occasional b&b located in beautiful natural environments, providing travellers with a truly genuine experience of the north of Portugal in close contact with nature.
