What you'll do

This excursion will start at the meeting point at 10:00h...The first point of interest will be the bridge of Misarela.This monument is linked to several pagan beliefs and legends, one of which attributes the construction of the bridge to a pact between a fugitive and the devil, which earned him the epithet "Bridge of the Devil"...

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.

Foi uma ótima experiência. O Nelson foi extremamente profissional, simpático e experiente. Recomendo vivamente. Para alguém que as 7 lagoas são alguma coisa de mágico.

A experiência contratada foi Misarela /7 lagoas do Gerês, mas devido a temperaturas muito elevadas com risco muito elevado de incêndio, alguns locais estavam interditados pela protecção civil, nomeadamente as 7 Lagoas. Apesar dessa situação inesperada o Nelson rapidamente propôs alternativas com visita a outros locais igualmente aprazíveis. O almoço incluído foi bom, num espaço muito agradável. Ao fim da tarde piquenique (pão queijo, enchidos, vinho). Experiência a repetir!

Foi um dia simplesmente fantástico. Eu conheço o Gerês desde que nasci, mas o Nelson levou me a sítios que eu desconhecia totalmente. Descobri cascatas e lagoas onde ainda é possível ter sossego, pois não está quase ninguém. Adorei o almoço e gostei mais ainda da caminhada da tarde até às 7 lagoas, senti que estava no paraíso verde. O Nelson é 5 estrelas, foi muito preocupado e dedicado durante todo dia. Com certeza vou fazer outra experiência em breve. Obrigada

The 7 lagoons experience was amazing! Nelson is a great guy and it was great being shown around Geres. He has a massive amount of knowledge of the area and is a awesome guide, but what I appreciated even more was the personal touches that he put on the experience. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to explore this beautiful part of the country.

Nelson is very knowledgable about the region, and we were able to visit some beautiful spots in Geres, I wouldn't have otherwise been able to visit. He generously picked me up and dropped me off far from Geres, to which I am very grateful. Thank you for the hospitality! The pace of the tour was quite slow, as someone booked the trip and was out of shape and had a bad ankle, but that's not Nelson's fault. Wish we had been able to do some more real hiking, but for one day to see Geres, I think it was a good overview.

This was an amazing experience! Personally, I’m very proud that I completed the hike because that was a new experience in of itself. Some aspects of the hiking in the afternoon was moderate level though as a beginner, we can also appreciate the challenge. Nelson was very helpful and kept a sturdy pace and would also pause to make sure myself and the other participant were okay and enjoying ourselves.The views were amazing, the regional cuisine we had midday was excellent, and the other thoughtful touches such as our post hike snack was personalized and also very lovely. I was in awe of the views we saw, and definitely feel that with Nelso as a guide I saw parts of Geres I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who has just a couple days in the region and wants to get a flavor of all the beautiful nature around us.
