    What to Expect
    8:00-8:30 AM. we will star the pick up  (please send us the information about the local where you are staying. pick up will be only in Porto city. 
    8:30 AM - Meeting point in Clérigos Tower, for those staying outside Porto and departure to Gerês National Park.
    9:30 AM - Quick stop to stretch the legs, have a coffee and for the forgetful, buy some snack and drinks for the day, please remind we will be doing a hike in the Nature, so no restaurants around :)
    10:00 AM - Time to get back to the road and direction Gerês National park.
    11:00 AM - We will arrive to our hike starting point and start our adventure. The hike has 8 km distance however we will do only 4 km until our main attraction, the natural pools, and then, 4 km back to our starting point.  When we will arrive to the pools, we will stay around 1 hour to swim, relax, eat, talk and enjoy :), after that we will return back. The hike is in a flat terrain, in a dirt track and will take around 1 and half hour each way, so 4 hours in Total. This is an easy hike if you are used to walk for 8 km
    4:00 PM - We should be back to the car, and from here we will just drive a bit until a typical bar for some drinks and then return to Porto.
    6:00 PM - Arrival to Porto.
