The Tour Provider

Gerês National Park is a Portuguese treasure, the only National Park in Portugal, which has been our second home our entire lives. We (Carla and Sergio) are a husband and wife team and have always wanted to share these 702 sq km filled with wild horses, megalithic tombs and clear springs with others, but in a way that respects both the people who live here and the surrounding nature.
