Description de l'activité

Discover Portugal’s ‘Little Tibet’ on this hiking tour in Peneda-Gêres National Park.

Scanning the horizon of Sistelo, it’s easy to see why its manicured fields and mountain backdrop get mistaken for the highlands of the Himalaya. Nestled in the heart of Peneda-Gêres National Park, explore the iconic stepped valleys of this rural hamlet, following the River Vez along the Arcos de Valdevez ecovia.  

This activity is run & operated from Guimarães in northern Portugal and travels to Silesto in Peneda-Gêres National Park, Arcos de Valdevez. A 22km route along the River Vez, this route includes a 900km constant incline using well-marked mountain paths.

Meet your guide in the town of Guimarães for this guided hiking tour to Sistelo. Part of Peneda-Gêres National Park this tour travels through the unique farmland known as ‘Little Tibet’ – a striking landscape of paddy-like fields set against the backdrop of the Portuguese mountains. Starting out in the lush valley, follow the ancient cobbled paths along the River Vez as you travel upstream –idenitifying authentic Roman milestones as you climb. An area rich in natural history and culture heritage, learn more about the landscape as you travel through the Arcos de Valdevez biosphere – stopping to cool off in neighbouring streams and pick wildflowers that decorate the byways. Reaching the summit that overlooks Silesto, appreciate the colours and contours of the village as you enjoy a picnic lunch – climbing the lookout boulder for postcard-quality views over the hillside. Return to Guimarães is set to a casual pace, allowing lots of time for questions and a chance to capture the unique terrain and you hike back to town.

Suitable for all ages and abilities, this 22km scenic ramble follows the Ecovia through Arcos de Valdevez biosphere to Sistelo. Whilst not a challenging hike, comfortable clothing and grip tread trainers are recommended.
