Bioblitz in Gerês Tour

Have you ever heard of Bioblitz? It consists in an intensive biological survey to list all the living species in a designated spot.

This is the challenge we propose: on one of the many privileged spots in the Peneda-Gerês National Park dedicate a couple of hours of unique day in Nature to observing, doing our own inventory and learning about all the animals and plants we can spot, under the guidance of two Biologists from the University of Minho.

The remaining day will be spent exploring Gerês and learning its History, from the Geology of its mountains to the human occupation, as well as learning both the symbiosis and the conflicts between humans and Nature.

And, of course, a great lunch full of local delicacies is included, so we can truly taste and experience what the landscapes offer.

Cease this opportunity for meeting the inhabitants of the impressive Gerês with specialists. And bring the kids!
