Berry Party in a Jar

Imagine picking organically grown berries from the plantation and transform them into delicious jams and exquisite liqueurs. Learn how to make your own sweet preserves and take the knowledge home with you. Can you think of better souvenirs?

After this berry party and a wonderful lunch, we will go on deeper into the mountains. The dramatic views will surely astonish you, and you’ll be enchanted with all the colours, smells and sounds of the Peneda-Gerês National Park.

Explore a humble village and stumble upon some curious rustic elements that confirm the human presence along the times.  Hike through an oak wood forest, on a medieval causeway and bordered by tall ferns and moss covered walls, to come across a cascade of waterfalls.

As a perfect ending, enjoy these natural monuments and accept their invitation to a cool off in its crystal-clear waters.
