We leave from Porto at 8AM towards Arouca town where we will stop shortly for bathrooms and for coffee.
Get ready for adventure! After a short drive, we will arrive at the Walkways and go across one of the Longest Suspension Bridges of the World – The 516 Arouca! It spans 516m-long (1,692ft) across the valley and hangs 175m (576ft) above the Paiva river!
Notice: crossing the bridge is not mandatory. You have the option to skip it.
Then, you will walk the Paiva Walkways downhill in a total length of 7km over a wooden boardwalk zig-zagging downhill along the left bank of the river. (you also have the option to walk only 3,5Km and be picked up half-way). You can decide that on the day of the tour.
The walk will be followed by another highlight of our day: lunch! A delicious meal is deserved and it will take place at a beautiful typical restaurant! Roasted veal is the meat option offered, but fish or vegetarian options are available.
After a power nap in the van, it’s time to enjoy Aveiro, also known as the “Portuguese Venice ”!
Discover the city center with us on a short walk and enjoy free time to spoil yourself with “ovos-moles” – sweet eggs, a local delicacy, or a ice cream, or a beer, a souvenir or all of it!
And once in Aveiro, a boat trip over the canals is a must do! You`ll board on a “moliceiro” – the traditional river boats – and discover the charming city through the canals!
Finish the day back in Porto.
