Aveiro and Paiva Walkways Trip

  • 39 reviews | 239 travellers
    Ricardo has been an excellent guide at all times and we have had a great time. You can tell that he knows the whole tour very well and that he likes his job. It was worth including the typical Portuguese menu. I loved the surprise that he gave us tape and a marker to hang it on the Friendship Bridge in Aveiro. It was wonderful. He also offered us Ovos moles, a typical dessert, for us to try. An unforgettable experience

Aveiro and Paiva Walkways Trip

We'll pick you up from your hotel in central Porto at 8 am from your hotel and we'll take a 1 hour trip to the Passadiços do Paiva Trailhead.

Once at our destination, we'll start a wonderful 3-hour walk along these wooden walkways. We'll find ourselves in the middle of stunning nature, and the surroundings of the Paiva River, as we make our way through the Arouca Geopark.

Did you know that Arouca is home to the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world? We'll walk the 516 Arouca Bridge during our visit!

Afterwards, we'll hop on the minibus and drive to Arouca, where we'll enjoy a delicious traditional meal. You'll 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'll see the magnificent Republic Square with its elegant 18th century Town Hall and we'll pass in front of amazing Art Nouveau constructions such as the Casa do Major Pessoa and the Ergovisão building. We'll also try some ovos moles, the famous Portuguese candied eggs.

After discovering the history of Aveiro, we'll board a traditional moliceiro boat for a brilliant 45-minute trip along the city's canals, with unique views of the colourful streets!

The trip will end by returning to Porto and on the way, we'll 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.

Meeting point

When making your reservation, you can choose to be picked up at your hotel in central Porto or to make your own way to the meeting point at Rua de Sa da Bandeira, 68.
