About
Outcrop invites you to discover the natural heritage of Serra da Freita through a private interpretive walk or in small groups. This experience aims to be accessible to most people, but physically demanding, in an extensive and contemplative walk, where science appears to make us understand what surrounds us. We will travel trails between the villages of Albergaria da Serra, Merujal and Castanheira, and the headwaters of the Caima River. Between schists and granites, we will see panoramic views of rare beauty, observe imposing waterfalls, rare geological phenomena, typical villages and vestiges of ancient peoples, where geology is the vehicle to understand the whole landscape, or if we were not in the Arouca geopark.

    Stop: 9 hours
    Physically demanding interpretive walk, given the distance to travel. We will go through different geosites that will allow us to understand the geodiversity of Serra da Freita and some of the geological and geomorphological processes that were at the base of its formation. During the walk we will have the possibility to contemplate imposing waterfalls, breathtaking panoramic views, very particular geological phenomena, see some of its wild and domestic inhabitants, watch ancestral practices and prehistoric remains. A walk that aims to be a moment of sharing and contemplating the natural heritage of Serra da Freita.

Caminhada inesquecível
Jun 2020
Fizemos uma caminhada de 4 horas. O Gil foi um guia excelente e paciente. Mostrou-nos lugares com paisagens fantásticas e também nos ensinou alguns pormenores de geologia que não conhecíamos. As pedras parideiras é um fenómeno que vale a pena ser visto. A Serra da Freita é um lugar com muitas surpresas para quem gosta da natureza.

Muito obrigado. Vocês também foram uns caminhantes esforçados, muito interessados e bem dispostos. Quando assim é, tudo fica mais fácil. O tempo poderia ter ajudado um pouco mais, sobretudo nas vistas panorâmicas. Quem sabe numa próxima oportunidade...
