Saturday 14th was, as I like to call it, a hiking day. I managed to get some friends together and went to Mourô, a beautiful meadow in Peneda-Gerês National Park, the only national park in Portugal and one of the last places with wild wolves.
I shook the dust off of my backpack, packed a few liters of water, energy bars and homemade “panados” (breaded cutlet) for lunch and hit the road northwards. The hike we planned has quite a nice warm up ascend: a rocky trail that rises more than 200 meters in less than 1 Km. After a few more kilometers we are finally rewarded with one of the most beautiful natural scenery in Portugal
We had initially planned to keep on ascending up to 1400m. However, we came across a beautiful natural pool and since we were a little late on the schedule and under a scorching +30 degrees you can imagine the result: SPLASH!
Next time we will fulfill the initial plan and keep on searching for other inspiring, relaxing and beautiful natural places like these.
