Hiking trails in Portugal, Switzerland and Luxembourg


There’s nothing like getting out and getting some fresh air on a gorgeous hike. No matter if your idea of a hike is a leisurely stroll along the shores of a picturesque lake or climbing the highest mountain in Switzerland, we’ve got you covered. Below are some of our favourite hikes around three countries in Europe.


Portugal - Peneda-Geres National Park

Peneda-Gerês National Park can be found in Northern Portugal 100km away from Porto. It is Portugal's only National Park and just so happens to run through Spain. It covers a total area of 72 290 hectares.


Nature

The region experiences rainfall for 130 days a year, attributing to its lush vegetation in all shades of green and rich flora and fauna. Similarly, water characteries the region, so you can appreciate its many cascading waterfalls, rivers, small lakes and natural swimming pools.

The landscapes are breathtaking, flaunting rolling hills, oak woodlands and deep valleys. Wildlife epidemic to the region is Roebuck, the Park’s symbolic animal, the  Iberian wolf, deer, golden eagles, boars and otters. Wild horses can also be found roaming the regions mountainscapes.
