Stairways and suspended bridges, in a lush green scenario

The Experience

Arouca Geopark, a protected heritage of UNESCO, is a natural wonder.

Inside the protected park, there is a walking track named Paiva Walkways or “Passadiços do Paiva, which is an 8,5km linear walking route among wooden stairways and a suspended pedestrian bridge, the longest of Portugal, which combines man-made architecture within the stunning natural landscape.

To enrich your experience, Quintãs Farm Houses with its zoo alike feeling, due to its exotic and farm alike animals, provides the perfect nest after an intensive nature program, perfect for families or groups of friends.
