Hike through a spectacular valley and discover one of Portugal's most charming cities with this trip to the Paiva Walkways and Aveiro, departing from Porto.
Aveiro and Paiva Walkways Trip
We will pick you up from your hotel at 8 am from your hotel or at the Praça da Liberdade square in Porto, as you prefer, and we will take a one hour trip to the Passadiços do Paiva Trailhead.
Once at our destination, we will start a wonderful three-hour walk along these wooden walkways. We will find ourselves in the middle of stunning nature, and the surroundings of the Paiva River, as we make our way through the Arouca Geopark.
Afterward, we will hop on the minibus and drive to Arouca, where we will enjoy a delicious traditional meal. You will have a choice of different dishes, such as the woodfire grilled steak.
Having regained our strength, we'll be on our way to Aveiro, the Venice of Portugal. There we will see the magnificent Republic Square with its elegant 18th century Town Hall and we will pass in front of amazing Art Nouveau constructions such as the Casa do Major Pessoa and the Ergovisão building. We will also try some ovos moles, the famous Portuguese candied eggs.
After discovering the history of Aveiro, we will board a traditional moliceiro boat for a brilliant 45-minute trip along the city's canals, with unique views of the colorful streets!
We will finish the trip by returning to Porto and on the way, we will make a short stop to admire the famous striped houses of Costa Nova. This is a great opportunity to take a souvenir photo of your trip!
After this, our tour concludes back at your hotel at 6 pm.
