Discover the natural highlights, charming villages, and picturesque landscapes of the Serra de Estrela region during this daylong trip!

During this great trip, you will discover the highlights of the Serra de Estrela region, both natural and cultural. It is a great place to visit in the summer, as visitors are rewarded with fresh mountain air and colorful wildflowers gently blowing in the breeze. In the winter, the landscape is equally stunning, a soft white blanket of snow draped over the terrain.  Serra de Estrela is the largest protected conservation area in the country, and is also home to the country's only ski resort.

During the trip, we will explore Tower (Torre), the highest point in mainland Portugal at 1,993 meters. On a clear day, the view extends over 100 miles, all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Additionally, at the summit you may choose to purchase some locally made cheese, a true gem of region. After you have some time to explore this area at your leisure, we will head to the village of Sabugueiro, a small, traditional shepherd's village with lovely scenic views of the surrounding countryside. From there, we head to the tranquil waters of Comprida Lagoon, a stunning lake set in the mountains. Finally, we visit Seia and the fascinating Museum of Bread, where we will learn about the traditional craft of bread baking and the history of this rural area.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
