10 Day Hike - 215km of Amazing Landscapes

Discover the National Park through the GR50 Path. Truly motivated by the culture and way of life of the communities that have long inhabited this area, the Peneda-Gerês Path reveals Roman roads and medieval pavements; paths used for seasonal transhumance between summer and winter settlements; old tracks traveled by herdsmen to upland meadows. Throughout its length there are plenty of opportunities to get to know the rich historical and archaeological heritage of the National Park, to live with the traditions and culture of the communities that inhabit these mountains and to enjoy local flavours. Stage by stage follow on features of natural interest, among which the oak forests are outstanding, true sanctuaries of biodiversity, where various floral and faunal species characteristic of the National Park find shelter. At the highest levels, the path follows along the sides of the mountains and reaches summits where the peace and tranquility of the mountains can be appreciated.

Carlos Moreira

I was born in Venezuela in 1967 and I´m the owner and guide of Honovitours. Since my youth, I had the taste for nature through camping with friends and family. At the age of 18, I discovered the pull towards mountaineering, I then became a climber and now I have climbed mountains from across all five continents on our precious planet earth.

Travel gives us our greatest stories, our most cherished memories and countless irreplaceable learnings that we can choose to pay forward to others. It teaches us about ourselves and each other, it broadens our horizons and, just like a reset button, it forces us to refocus on what really matters.

What travel means to me…leave our world a better place, meet different cultures, to learn, to escape reality, to relax, to explore, for humility, to eat, to be transformed, to live out your bucket list dreams and to get to know you and show you our beautiful country where people are hospitable, fun, simple, live with an open heart, where Fado is Portuguese, where you will find the best wines in the world, where gastronomy is unique and the landscapes are so amazing that you will miss them after witnessing them and embracing our Portugal!

I am a professional in mountaineering activities and since 1998 I started to guide Portuguese groups in Portugal and Spain. In 2010, I became an official mountain guide through the Portuguese National Mountaineering school in which I have the certificate of hiking monitor.

I hope that my programs please you and that I have the opportunity to share with you the moments and places of scenic and cultural interest in our beautiful territory.
