The free time spent in nature is always good, especially when you can visit and develop new places. Especially for hiking fans, today we are introducing a great route in Portugal, the official opening of which was in 2015.
The Paiva Walkways is a beautiful walkway on the Portuguese River Paiva in the municipality of Arouca. The hiking route, which winds in the mountains, is 8 km long and is made of sturdy wooden construction. From the Paiva Walkways there are wonderful views of the breathtaking nature in the area. The average duration of the route is 2.5 hours and within this time hikers can enjoy fantastic landscapes, waterfalls and a wide variety of flora and fauna.
A hike on Paiva Walkways not only offers close contact with nature, it is a special experience because you can admire a really dramatic landscape there. The infrastructure is ideally integrated into the surroundings, following the hills and the formation of the terrain as skilfully as if the stairs and bridges gently embrace the mountains. The unique route has windy wooden stairs up to the mountain top, where the amazing natural views spread out, so that you never want to leave this place. The narrow suspension bridge over the river ensures an extreme, unforgettable experience. Smaller wooden bridges lead to the rocks and go through lush flora. The wooden infrastructure follows the natural mountain relief. Here you will also find pleasant places to relax and admirable places from which you can enjoy wonderful panoramic views.
