We had been debating where to do a great hike, and after much deliberation we settled on this hike- We read that the 1050 steep stairs at the end of a 9k hike was...a little tough, so we opted to park our car at Espinuca...More

I advise to start on Areinho, in which the beginning is very hard, but after passing by the ticket office (at about 1,5km), the walk is really pleasant. We stopped at Praia do Vau, but unfortunately there was a warning stating the water was contaminated...More

My family and I really enjoyed this long walk (we did the easier path from Areinho to Espiunca). We stopped a couple of times in clearings along the river and took a bath in that fresh and reinvigorating water. The views are awesome3

If you hike or even want to hike and you are anywhere in Portugal, you must plan to hike this trail. Imagine a well manicured, boardwalk, hanging off the side of a cliff, tracing the river, with world class views. Add to this solar powered...More

Amazing experience. If you go there, my recommendation is to start on the “Areinho” side. Otherwise... you’ll end exhausted; if you want to do both ways or only one, this is - in my opinion - the best option.

Now this is a walk I will remember! Wonderful wooden pathways for almost all the way and also a suspension bridge (which is not part of the route, but just for admiring the views). Start from Areinho, it’s little easier that way. There’s parking space...More
