Activities

Many accommodations offer the possibility to book excursions and activities during your stay. This can be arranged on site with the relevant accommodation. Usually this can always be booked and arranged in the short term. In addition, there are also activities and excursions that have to be booked longer in advance and which are usually not organized by the accommodations themselves. Roundtrip Portugal has been able to make arrangements with a number of providers for you to offer these activities at a reduced rate. The activities can be booked directly when booking a tour. Sometimes it is also possible to do this later. Inform yourself in advance about the possibilities.

Canyoning Ribeira da Pena, Serra da Lousã

Canyoning is a sport in which one follows the course of a river through a gorge. Canyoning is therefore mainly a sport that is practiced in the mountains. To follow the river it is necessary to walk, to climb, to jump, to swim and to abseil. This small river flows through a narrow valley. The riverbed, riverbanks and cliffs are formed with imposing rocks that make this an almost inaccessible place. For this reason, the Ribeira da Pena valley still serves as a refuge for plants and animals that are unique and rare.
This is the most spectacular river in central Portugal, where it is possible to find the perfect combination of impenetrable and wilderness (formed by numerous waterfalls, lagoons and stately cliffs) with the lush vegetation and distinctive flora and fauna. All effort spent on performing this activity is worthwhile. More information Transserrano
