Our day starts with a kick of adrenaline!
After picking you up in Porto, we set off towards the Paiva Walkways where you’ll cross the Arouca 516 – the WORLD’S LONGEST SUSPENSION FOOTBRIDGE!
The Arouca 516 Footbridge spans 516m-long across the valley and hangs 175m above the Paiva river. The walking deck is made of a see-through open grid metal mesh! Will you dare?
The Paiva Walkways are one of the most beautiful walking trails in the world and a World Travel Awards winner. It is a 7km wooden boardwalk zig-zagging down along the left bank of Paiva river at Arouca Unesco Geopark.
Lunch is another highlight: veal roasted in clay pots at a typical restaurant with panoramic views (fish or vegetarian options also available)
Before heading back to Porto, we’ll visit Arouca for a glance about local culture and the Portuguese architecture styles.
Know before you go: arriving at the Paiva Walkways, the road gets a bit winding. For those who have car motion sickness problems, we advise you to have a tablet or a pill to help with that issue.
