Hi,we are Nelson and Rui... We love hiking and camping, whatever is outdoor activities preferably in the wild mountain ... We both work in a house of shows in guimaraes called São Mamede C.A.E. We love traveling and meeting new people and cultures. Gerês National Park has been one of ours greatest delights ever since we were young boys. We´ve been having fun getting to know the top of each of its mountains, the peacefullness of everyone of its meadows, and the refreshing sounds of its soothing rivers. And we are eager to share our magical Gerês with the rest of the world.
