NATURE & CHERRY LOVERS, is another one of our special programs for nature lovers!
For two days we will show you the best kept secrets of Nordeste Trás-os-Montes. You can enjoy delicious picnics in the middle of nature, served at an altitude of 1200m in the middle of Serra de Bornes and with an irresistible view over the fascinating Lagos do Sabor.
We will also get in close contact with the Corços under protection in the Serra de Bornes, with a walk along the Rota do Corço and entry and visit to the respective protection enclosure. We will visit the exhibition by the artisan Fátima Gomes, where you will learn more about the wool cycle.
You will also have the opportunity to experience Cherry Picking and attend a Vegan Workshop with sweet and savory snacks based on Cherry.
This program also includes two irresistible activities, the serene cruise through Albufeira do Azibo in an ecological boat and, for the more adventurous, the experience of flying in paragliding.
