Whitewater Kayaking

This tour is the best choice for an exciting day balanced between the thrill of paddling down the white waters of a mountain river and the relaxed visit to some of Gerês highlights.

Although Vez is a turbulent river, originated in the 2nd rainiest mountains in Europe and preferred by kayak enthusiasts all over the world, we can offer different runs suited for everyone regardless of the level of expertise.

You will be challenged to overcome each rapid, to take the most of every fall and to enjoy every bump of these crystal-clear waters bordered by luxurious vegetation.

After a traditional lunch, spend a wonderful afternoon exploring the Peneda-Gerês National Park. Visit an ancient village, its medieval castle and peculiar stone granaries. Discover the magnificent Albergaria forest and take in the dramatic granite landscapes.
