What to do

Adventure in Minho


Minho produces excellent conditions for practicing adventure sports.

On the region’s coast, the sea meets all of the requirements for surfing, bodyboarding and offshore fishing.

If you want to take advantage of this kind of sport in Viana do Castelo, visit Afife’s beaches, such as Arda beach or Marina beach.

In Ofir, Esposende, you can also try kitesurfing, a sport that has been gaining more enthusiasts in the North. Also, take advantage of Minho’s rivers while fishing or just enjoy floating down them in a canoe. 

If you prefer feeling the adrenaline rush in a hilly and challenging terrain, the paths through the Peneda-Gerês National Park offer an opportunity for unique experiences. Here you can take tours, see wild horses and birds of prey, and enjoy breathtaking scenery.

By yourself or with your family, discover this region’s hidden scenery, ideal for spending days dedicated to sports and adventure.

All you need to bring is some courage, since you will always find companies that rent out materials and give advice on safety, courses and places where you can practice the sports you like most.
