The free time spent in nature always works well, especially when you can visit and open up new places. Especially for the hiking fans, today we present a great track in Portugal, which was officially opened in 2015.
Hiking makes you fit!
The Paiva Walkways is a beautiful walkway on the Portuguese river Paiva in the municipality of Arouca. The hiking route winding in the mountains is 8 km long and consists of stable wooden construction. The Paiva Walkways offers beautiful views of the stunning surrounding nature. The average duration of the route is 2.5 hours, during which time hikers enjoy fantastic landscapes, waterfalls and a wide variety of flora and fauna.
Beautiful rapids and magnificent rocks can be seen all the way
A hike on Paiva Walkways not only provides close contact with nature, it is a special experience because it allows you to admire a truly dramatic landscape. The infrastructure is ideally integrated into the environment, it follows the hills and terrain as skillfully as if the stairs and bridges gently embrace the mountains. The unique route has windy wooden staircases to the top of the mountain, where so amazing natural views spread that you never want to leave this place. The narrow suspension bridge over the river ensures an extreme, unforgettable experience. Smaller wooden bridges lead to the rocks and go through lush plant life. The wooden infrastructure follows the natural mountain relief. Here you will also find pleasant places to relax and admirable places, from which you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views.
The route is difficult, but there are recreational spots in some places
If you want to travel abroad, but still have not chosen a specific destination, it is certainly worth visiting Paiva Walkways and spending a nice and exciting time there. Take a look at our inspirational picture gallery and you will soon book your flight to Portugal. We wish you lots of fun!
