Keen Tours, Porto

#5 of 11 in Adventure in Porto
We are a small family business hoping to make the best out of our passion for the Peneda-Gerês National Park and the desire to share it with everyone.

As keen hikers, we explored most of this territory, and so we ended up knowing this area like few. And we feel that the uniqueness of these mountains full of life should be enjoyed by anyone who wants to experience this delicate balance without putting it at risk.

We embrace sustainability as a way of life and we make our business decisions based on the same principle.

***

Somos uma pequena empresa familiar com a expectativa de juntar a nossa paixão pelo Parque Nacional da Peneda-Gerês à vontade de o partilhar com todos.

Como amantes das caminhadas, já explorámos grande parte deste território, pelo que acabámos por ficar a conhecer esta área como poucos. E achamos que a singularidade destas montanhas cheias de vida devem ser desfrutadas por todos os que queiram testemunhar este equilíbrio delicado sem o colocar em risco.

Adoptamos a sustentabillidade como modo de vida – tentamos minimizar impactos na Natureza tanto quanto possível. E a nossa postura professional reflecte esse mesmo princípio.

  • Pedro collected us at our campground at Lima Escape (clamping highly recommend as a base). He is very friendly and personal and tries to take into account individual wishes for the tour. He has all ki...  more »
  • We had booked this tour on the Web well in advance of our holiday as we would like to try the stand-up paddle and experience the Peneda-Gerês National Park. The bookings went smoothly and we got nice information in advance. However, the experience was supposed to be even more amazing than expected. We had set our location and got the day before an email with details for the trip, the pickup time mm. We were picked up by our guide Pedro at the agreed time and drove to Rio Lima where we were received by a guide who had to accompany us at our stand up paddle t Our on the river. He brought all the necessary gear. Everyone was finely instructed and we sailed around different places on the river and got the opportunity to jump from bridge and play in the water. The ride with Stand up paddle took 3-4 hours and was a really fun and active experience which is well recommended for everyone else. Afterwards drove will further in the national Park first to Soajo, where we have lunch at a local restaurant which was included in the tour price. Really nice local lunch incl. Beverages. Time for a cozy break and a chat with our friendly and very knowledgeable guide Pedro. After lunch we drove on to Lindoos and saw some of the beautiful granaries. Then pass through the National park, over dams and with stops at various sights. We drove further into Spain and saw a geological fault in the mountains and experienced the hot springs and baths in the city of Os Baños at Rio Caldo. The tour continued back to Portugal, through forests and mountains. We saw wild horses, cows, bee farms and wolves traps. Our guide was absolutely unbeatable friendly and narrative. Had a really great knowledge and geology and geography and could tell in detail about the National Park's wildlife, plants and geology. We were dropped off at our location after 11 hours of touring. Along the way, Pedro took photos and video from the entire trip, which we received electronically after some day-about 250 photos. Overall, an amazing day that combined it active with stand up paddle with the experience of the National Park. The national park could not be experienced better than with our guide Pedro who was absolutely incredibly friendly and very much wanted to tell about everything around us. There was no doubt that he did everything to give us a very special day. As we had some special interests the tour was immediately adapted so it could contain some special experiences. Should only bring some personal belongings, swimwear and hiking shoes, as well as clothes after the weather. Everything else was catered for. Can only give our warmest recommendations to Keen Tours to anyone who wants to explore northern Portugal and Peneda-Gerês National Park.

  • Pedro and Rita were great! They customised our tour according to what we wanted to see and made it seriously unique. The price was reasonable as well. This was the highlight of our trip- our whole group had tons of fun! I would definitely do another tour with them in the future.
  • This was arguably the best tour I've ever done. Pedro was super knowledge and really fun to spend the day with. Not once in 12 hours did we ever feel bored and always did Pedro care for our interests. It was one of the best highlights of my trip and our whole group agrees as well. Thanks, Pedro! :)
