What you'll do

The experience will start in Porto, in Clérigos tower, Here we will walk until ribeira and there we will take the bus to Matosinhos, place where we will start our walk, (not included). Once in Matosinhos we will get the chance to visit the fish market and if you feel like, you can get some fresh fish for your dinner :) After the visit to the fish market we will start walking along the sea until Foz and then by the river. Here in Porto we say that the best place to visit is Gaia (the other side of the river) and not Porto and this is because is from Gaia that we can see Porto so we will keep our way in the other saide of the river, in Gaia, and for the cross, we will do it in a ancient ferry boat, used by fisherman coming from Gaia to fish in Porto. Once in Gaia, we will visit the ancient fisherman village, Afurada, and here we will have a stop for some snacks. Once we will be in a fisherman zone, our snacks will be mainly fish and wine :). This will be a light snacks once we will still need to walk until Porto and a heavy snacks is not advisable. After this snacks we will keep our way to Porto and we will finish with a toast of Port wine in Gaia with the amazing scenary of Porto city. For those that would like to have a Francesinha (most typical dish in Porto), we can all go to have the best one in town and keep on this amazing day :) Distance to walk: 10Km/6.2 miles

I'm Adriano and together with my hiking friend Miguel, we are the hosts of this amazing experience in Gerês National Park. Always passionate about nature and hiking, I started hiking since I was born in Madeira, place where I’m from. When I moved to Porto, I met Miguel, and together we started exploring Gerês National park a true paradise just one and a half hour by car from Porto, a place still untouched by tourists, reason why I'm sure this will be an incredible adventure in the nature . Today with airbnb, we decided to host this experience now in Porto city center for those who can't come to walk in Gerês National Park, hope you can join us ;)
