The scenery is incredible. I recommend going to Mizarela viewpoint. Also go through the waterfalls. Visit Drave, the abandoned village and take a dip there. Also pass through the Portal of the Devil, the landscape is dizzying!

being in Arouca we had to go visit Serra da Freita. going up there was a bit of a challenge but once there it was well worth the drive. the views are amazing and the landscape variety is truly beautiful.

Going on motorcycle, with all those bends it is close to fell like heaven. Nature is fenomenal there.

Amazing views however would have felt safer if the roads were better protected and not as narrow. Despite this I definitely recommend
