One mountain, one river and one wood path that goes through 8 kilometers of nature. These are the elements that we add to this tour that lasts about 6 hours. The Paiva walkways go through breathtaking landscapes, in an authentic nature sanctuary. The route follows the Paiva river and the several river beaches that will surprise us during the whole way and, during the summer, will provide us small breaks for a swim.
最多可供10位年滿18歲的旅人參加。 You must be aware that the trail has 8 kilometers and, during hot sunny days it might be more difficult to keep the pace. But, we can do small breaks to rest and drink water anytime.
