Across the region, various companies put on orienteering events of a range of types. Spend a day combining physical exercise with a genuine sensation of freedom and space generated by the beauty of the natural surroundings. A very different kind of day out.
Challenge your friends or colleagues. Up the hills and across rivers and streams and along riverside paths.
Skilfully circumvent the obstacles you encounter on the way wasting time only on the fabulous views of the countryside around.
Visit the Montesinho, Alvão or the International Douro Natural Parks and admire their fauna and flora.
And at the end of the day, contemplate it all over a glass of red wine. After all, this is the Douro region.
