The Secrets of the Inner Portugal
The Serra da Estrela mountain and its neighboring villages are the destination, with its centuries-old traditions and history.

The Estrela mountain and surrounding villages are the destiny of our journey. Here the landscapes across the high plateau of Estrela mountain are wonderful and where de glacier lagoons are queens. It has sparkling clear blue mountain lakes and rugged peaks. There are also stunning glacial formations, sub-alpine meadows, peculiar granite boulders and forested gorges, which are a most influential element in the Portuguese climate. The Juniperus communis alpine is carpeted across vast areas. Dunnocks, dart ford warblers and eagle owls habit the forests, while kestrels and goshawks circle and soar above the highest peaks. Peace reigns and there is not a soul in sight.
