OVERVIEW AND EXPECTATIONS
You will be picked-up at your accommodation in Lisbon and head to the North for two unforgettable days.
The Walkways are located on the left bank of the Paiva River, in Arouca municipality, Aveiro, Portugal. They are 8 km that provide a walk "untouched", surrounded by unique beauty of landscapes, in an authentic natural sanctuary along the brave waters’ downhills, quartz crystals and endangered species in Europe. The route extends from the river beaches of Areinho and Espiunca, lying between them, the Vau beach. A journey through biology, geology and archeology that will remain, of course, in heart, soul and in mind of any nature lover.
Coimbra is one of Europe’s oldest university towns, it is a city full of history. Have a walk up to the top of the hill for a gorgeous view of the Mondego river (one of the three great rivers of Portugal). Get speechless with the amazing old library. Visit the medieval and academic prison and the private examination room.
