Walking with a guide
Water walking is recently in Portugal. It is a walk, but along the river bed. To enjoy this activity comfortably, Trans Serrano offers wetsuits and helmets. The activity goes through a spectacular environment, where it is possible to observe rare species of trees, such as the Portuguese laurel (Prunus lusitanica), and also river birds such as the Gray Heron, the White-throated Dipper or the River Kingfisher. The presence of otters is noticeable and with a bit of luck you can see one … Silence and the direct contact with the nature are the highlights of these activity. This is a unique experience in a beautiful river, the Ceira. B&B Casa Traca has arranged a discount for you. More information Transserrano
Cycling and mountain biking
The area surrounding Casa Traca is perfect for exploring by bicycle . Keep that in mind that we are situated in the mountains and that the roads are therefore not equally flat everywhere. In Arganil is a good bike rental company where you can rent a bike / mountain bike per day or for the entire holiday. If desired, we have 1 mountain bike and 1 city bike for you.
There are also many options for the most beautiful ones in the neighborhood < strong> bicycle and (off road) mountain bike tours through beautiful nature reserves. Also suitable for untrained cyclists to make a bike ride: these are the roads in the surroundings of Valbona, Arganil. These roads are less hilly but with beautiful vistas and views. The most roads, even the small inland roads are generally well maintained.If you are tired of the asphalt, then take your mountain bike and look for the steep (sandy) roads.Ever more exciting is cross-country and downhill racing down the mountain where possible. In a mountainous area, every sport is in perfect harmony with its surroundings: rough, but fun. If you are looking for a fun, challenging or simply beautiful route, take a look at routeyou.
Cycling on the ECOPISTA DO DÃO
Beautiful cycle path over a lifted railway line . Cycle down 47 kilometers slowly, with transfer to the starting point. The “Linha do Dão” , a railroad that was closed in 1988 between Santa Comba Dão and Viseu in the middle Portugal, was taken back into use in 2011, but now as a cycling and walking path with the name Ecopista do Dão . With its 49 km it is not only the longest Ecopista, but probably also the most beautiful Ecopista in Portugal.
