DISCOVERING AND LIVING NATURE IN PORTUGAL.

 

Portugal gathers a series of different nature landscapes that taint every stroll you make with the pleasure of a new discovery. Wide plain, mountain and valleys, rivers and its weirs, dams and reservoirs with refreshing river beaches, one of kind fauna and flora are attributes that make the difference in this territory where life flows slowly under an incredible and unique light. It results from a mix of the landscape greens with the sky and water blues and the yellow light of the sun, that shines almost all year, many hours per day. Relish all of them enjoying our suggestion to immerse in nature with open air activities. But remember that amidst nature the best and most delicious meal is always a local Genial Picnic.
