Accept the challenge and take yourself to the limit - see if you can make it to the top of the Minho Serra.
A green and mountainous region, the Minho has many ideal spots for mountain climbing, both with and without ropes.
Enjoy the very best that the Peneda Gerês National Park has to offer. This natural sanctuary is home to some excellent climbing. Head up the granite rock to discover hilltop streams and the boltholes of shepherds. Find yourself in forests of birch and other ancient trees.
To the south of Gerês, near Vieira do Minho, experience the thrill of mountaineering as you climb the Serra da Cabreira.
For further information on sites for safe climbing, please contact the Portuguese Mountaineering Federation or the Portuguese School of Mountaineering and Climbing.
Various companies supply the equipment and local knowledge on the best places to climb.
