By Sofia Pereira

Ah, Arouca Geopark! Este pedaço de paraíso aqui no Norte de Portugal, onde a natureza fala mais alto e cada passo é uma nova descoberta. Today, I invite you to lace up your hiking boots and join me on a journey through this UNESCO-recognized wonder.

The moment your feet touch the trails of Arouca, you realize you’re stepping into a world where history and nature intertwine. Cada rocha, cada árvore, conta uma história milenar. The geopark’s famous walking trails, like the Paiva Walkways, are not just paths but narratives written in stone and greenery.

As we hike, let’s breathe in the fresh, earthy scents and listen to the symphony of birdsong. Here, the hustle of city life feels like a distant memory. A natureza aqui é uma terapia, um abraço para a alma. The tranquility is palpable, offering a serene escape and a chance to reconnect with ourselves.

The Arouca Geopark is also a place of marvels – from the giant trilobites fossils, evidence of ancient life, to the breathtaking Aguieiras Waterfall. Cada curva do caminho revela uma nova maravilha, uma nova razão para se apaixonar por este lugar.

And as we reach the end of our hike, with our spirits uplifted and minds serene, it’s clear why this journey is more than just a hike. It’s an exploration of our connection to the earth, a testament to the beauty and resilience of nature. Aqui, na imensidão do Arouca, encontramos um pedaço de nós mesmos.

So, whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a curious wanderer, Arouca Geopark awaits. Venha descobrir este tesouro escondido do Norte de Portugal, onde cada passo é uma história e cada vista um poema.

Até a próxima aventura,
