Vale d’Água – Paradela via Ecopista

22.7- km out-and-back trail near Ribeiradio, Viseu. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 6 h 18 min to complete entirely. This trail is great for hiking, mountain biking, and running, and it’s unlikely you’ll encounter many other people while exploring. The trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime.

Cascata da Cabreia (Cabreia Waterfall)

There are two waterfalls in the park: a small one (pictured) and a larger one that serves as the main attraction. Nestled in the heart of a forest, the park is enveloped by lush trees and verdant surroundings. It exudes a welcoming and serene ambiance, making it a place I truly adore. Several trails start from there.

Who doesn’t enjoy adventure and swinging on the highest points of the central region? We enjoyed the breeze at the Serra Swing, the Terra e Mar Swing, and the Rio Swing. And also visit the typical 19th-century Brasileiro Houses and the Sanctuary of “Senhora Dolorosa”.

Paiva Walkways + Arouca 516 Suspension Bridge

Walk along one of the most beautiful walking trails in the world: the Paiva Walkways – winner of the World Travel Awards in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019! And visit the Arouca Geopark, where you will cross the Longest Suspension Footbridge of the World! It spans 516m-long (1,692ft) across the valley and hangs 175m (576ft) above the Paiva River. Then, visit Arouca, which is a very Portuguese countryside town in style and tradition (a glance about local culture and construction styles where a impressive XII century monastery is the highlight).

Canyoning Frades River near Arouca

Regarded as one of the most beautiful canyoning spots in Portugal, the Fraddes canyon has spectacular pristine pools, cliff jumps and rappelling throughout.

This is canyoning in some of the most captivating landscape possible, perhaps one of the best in Europe. This river has beautiful lagoons along the route, with several waterfalls, rappels, and jumps, being it an extremely fun river to descend.
