“Great day out”
Review of Arouca Geopark

Great day out for nature lovers. 8km walk - hike, on man made trails following the river. Lots of parts are under shade, but a hat is recommended on hotter summer days.

So awfull to see what the fires have done to the area. Only a third of the stairs are still able to be climbed. Would have loved to see the forrest with all threes instead of a terrible dark hillside. Destroyed

This trip was the highlight of our visit.We drove from arouca village,there are signs to all trails.The road is narrow sometimes, and you should choose parking well. At first we walked up endless wooden stairs to photograph the amazing canyon and lively acricultural fields on hills, but then we decided to walk a wooden trail along the river(a bit above).As it was hot in july,so we decided to climb down about 100 m to the river to take a bath.The water was surprisingly pleasant,cool but not ice cold with little waterfalls and lots of beautiful shimmering pebbles,some of them with lots of quartz.This geopark is fantastic,unfortunatly we have seen only a tiny region!Next time I will plan more than a day for visiting it!

Have a ride to the top of the radar, go see the "parideiras" and "boroas"stones and the huge Frecha da Mizarela. But you have more than 40 geopoints to see... And especially if you go in the spring the countriside is amazing, yellow and purple.
