We can give you information for trips in the area or a tour through the area. If you want an active holiday  enjoy unlimited hiking, walking, cycling, mountain biking or motorcycling than the Casa Traca is the ideal base. You can walk or bike up Monte alto to find a beautiful little chapel with its own special story. A true legend from the environment, read more on the page about it here. Or choose the forest path to Arganil on this road you can bike safely  through the woods to Arganil far, the first major city to Valbona at about 4 km away. Under the heading cycling and motorcycling, we have included a link for you to one of the routes that run along Bed and Breakfast Casa Traca. The area is also known for its many rivers and river beaches where in the summer you can relax in the natural shade of the trees along the shore. The Rio Alva and Mondego are the two rivers in the immediate vicinity a little further away you will find Rio Douro, also known as a wine region. Because of the height in this area and the wetlands you can also find many waterfalls.
