The north of Portugal has breathtakingly beautiful landscapes. So far, we have only been exploring the north, so actually we cannot tell, if the south is even more beautiful. We spent some days in the National Park of  Peneda-Gerês, the protected landscape Corno do Bico and the mountain chain of Serra da Estrela.

National Park Peneda-Gerês

Peneda-Gerês is the only national park of Portugal. It is located in the north-east of the country. Our stay there with our truck was tolerated by the authorities.

Serra da Estrela

The Serra da Estrela is the highest mountain range of the Portuguese mainland. Its highest peak has an altitude of almost 2.000 metres. It is the only place in the country where the Portuguese go skiing in winter.

Protected landscape Corno do Bico and the areas between all these locations

We have not stayed actually in the protected landscape but very close to it, so that we were surrounded by the wild horses that live there.


Yes, there are also cities in North Portugal, but that is the field of expertise of Sylvia. I, for myself, am not the guy you want to do city trips with.

We finally crossed the border to Portugal. Our first appointment with an eco community will be in two weeks. So, there is enough time to explore the north of Portugal. But first a little review of our voyage so far.

Here a selection of pictures we made of our pets and animals we met:

And there was this rainbow in France:

Or this shopping centre in Andorra:

Pilgrims and roads in the mountains of Spain:

And a selfie of Sylvia:

There are people that say there is Andalusia and there is the rest of Spain. Well, I think the north of the country is highly underrated. The weather is not always sunny but the landscape and the little villages are extraordinary beautiful. What do you think?
