Ozokwenza

We meet in São Bento train station, hop in the train and in less than 30 minutes will be at the gates of Porto’s Mountains, where the best kept secret of Porto is waiting for you: the authentic village of Couce, completely surrounded by trees and mountains.

Step by step, we leave the city buzz behind, discovering Porto’s Mountains, where we will hike, walk by a river, admire goats and sheep pasturing and visit a hidden village (with less than 10 inhabitants), where we will rest, relax and enjoy a tasty picnic with fruits and Portuguese tapas with products of this region.

Let yourself be surprised by landscape contrasts, in a relaxing hike for all levels of experience (9km with the picnic halfway), through stunning trails that tell the stories of ancient watermills, the Roman presence and their gold mines and even an imposing shale quarry, while we feel embraced by the forest and pure nature.

And regarding the picnic, I only buy fresh and local products (from small businesses also owned by nice people), and always served with (my) Portuguese hospitality :-)
Other things to note
Wear comfortable clothes and suitable shoes for hiking. Bring water (you can have a refill halfway) and sun cream.

Olá! I’m Ricardo and I have always loved travelling, meeting new people, exploring nature, discovering local foods and, above all, sharing experiences.
I am an experienced hiker and after travelling for over a year, I returned to my beloved Porto and while doing my weekly hikes in Porto’s mountains, I started seeing it more and more as a little wonder that deserved to be shared with other travelers who also seek a close connection with nature and local culture.
I am also full of travel stories, fun facts and tips about Porto, which will be my pleasure to share in order to make your trip to Porto even more special.
Let’s take a hike?

Lapho uzoba khona

Porto's mountains offer breathtaking trails, where we will hike through different landscapes until we are completely surrounded by the mountain and its forest. Couce Village is truly a hidden gem, that even a lot of locals haven't heard about, where time seems to have its own pace.
Most travelers always get surprised to find such place so close from the city center.

Ilinganiswe ku-4.95 kokungu-5 ngokusuka kokushiwo abanye okungu-211.

5 star hike I am a solo traveller and other people had a requirement of at least two pax for the tours. I was glad that Ricardo accepted my booking so it was a private tour :) Everything was great from the beginning till the end. Ricardo has great communication skills. He was on time at the station with a beautiful blue eyed dog which made this hike even better! I've asked for a vegetarian option for the picnic and it was freshly made from local products and very delicious. The hike is not very difficult physically so if you're not super fit don't worry. The sceneries are beautiful- you'll see river, hills and walk through super fresh eucalyptus forest. Autumn colours were great! If you're looking to connect with nature and have a city break with a passionate about hiking person (Ricardo), look no more, you'll have a great experience :)

Ricardo est un hôte très sympathique, qui fait découvrir à 30mn de Porto, de magnifiques paysages : montagnes, rivières, anciennes mines d'or et bergeries sont au rdv. La randonnée est assez facile et Ricardo vérifie toujours qu'il n'y a pas de problèmes.Tout au long du parcours, il donne des explications sur la nature, les animaux etc... Le pique-nique était très bon, Ricardo avait bien en compte le fait que je suis végétarienne. Pour finir, ce qui fait aussi le gros plus de la randonnée, c'est le fait d'être accompagnée de chiens tout le long, ça ajoute un côté encore plus sympathique. Ricardo m'a aussi envoyée plein de bonnes adresses à tester à Porto. Je ne peux que recommander cette expérience  !

What a nice and varied nature walk, off the beaten path and just half an hour outside of Porto. Ricardo and Shy were great company. Interesting conversation, plenty of stories about the area and a nicely prepared picnic with local specialties. Highly recommend!

Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit auf der Wanderung und dem sehr üppigen Picknick. Auch die übrigen Teilnehmer waren alle sehr, sehr nett und wir haben eine sehr gute Zeit gehabt. Die Wanderung ist auch für Anfänger geeignet, man sollte aber keine Angst vor Hunden haben, die einen auf dem ganzen Weg begleiten. Für Tierfreunde natürlich der Himmel! Ricardo ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber, bei dem wir uns jederzeit perfekt aufgehoben gefühlt haben.
