The day that welcomes Spring we launch a new tour: Bioblitz in Gerês.

And whether you know what a Bioblitz is or never heard of this unique way to observe Nature you will want to try this tour!

Basically, Bioblitz is a flash recognition of life in a specific area in a few hours: the participants observe, photograph and list plants, animals, fungi… all the living being they can find, together with Biologists that share all the information they can about what we find. Usually it takes a few hours, but we managed to fit it in a relaxed full-day tour.

What do we suggest? Join us to explore the Peneda-Gerês National Park mountain ranges and spend the morning in one of its very special places to, under the guidance of Biologists from the University of Minho, observe all the life around us.

Spot birds, flowers, frogs, trees, ladybugs, moss…  and specialists will be there to help you discover even more… Feel, smell, learn, and take pictures of Nature all around. Doesn’t it sound great?

The remaining day will also fit the History of these territories, impressive villages, amazing landscapes and a delicious traditional lunch so you can taste different local delicacies and also the fresh green wine.

Keen to try this? And to bring the kids? Book your tour this Spring, a privileged season to observe fauna and flora multiplying, and don’t miss a detail thanks to the Biologists that will accompany us.

We promise a unforgettable day filled with Science and History. Observing Nature up close will grants you access to knowledge as well as beauty, and we’ll make sure you get loads of amazing photos of the best moments.

Include the Bioblitz in Gerês tour in your plans for the next sunny days! It’s perfect for the whole family.

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="2156" img_size="medium"][/vc_column][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text]The municipality of Arouca owns a geological heritage of remarkable importance, so part of its territory was recognised as a Geopark by the European Network and the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network in 2009. Highlights of the Arouca Geopark are the Castanheira Nodular Granite (Pedras Parideiras), the Canelas Giant Trilobites and the Vale do Paiva Ichnofossils. But you can find at least 41 unique geosites. This 328km2 open-air geological museum is protected by the surrounding mountains and crossed by several rivers, being a wonderful destiny for everyone who wants to enjoy canyoning, canoeing, kayaking and mountaineering. The River Paiva rapids are a great example: here you will find some of the best locations in Portugal for rafting and kayak-rafting.
