outdoor adventure in North Portugal

Quinta Rural is ideally set for active holidays and outdoor adventures. Not only are we located in the beautiful the Serra da Cabreira mountains, but we’re also surrounded by the national parks Peneda de Geres and the Alvao. The area has huge potential for outdoor activities: full of playful paths, hight differences, gorges, granite mountains, waterfalls and a mild sunny climate.

We’ve listed our top 10 outdoor activities here based on our own and previous guests’s experiences.  Check out the offer and remember, you don’t have to be a dare devil to actively enjoy the great outdoors.  A small sense of adventure, the right scene and good instructors make all the difference in what will be some unforgettable experiences.
