You follow through beautiful rural pathways, until you reach the latter stages of the uphill towards Alto das Veias, followed by Portal da Freita.
The appetizer is done, a kind of KM Vertical. Caution is required. These two ridges when faced with winter weather are fearful. It’s a storm.
Take shelter as you lower the altitude, embracing a wonderful birch trees grove. And then you’ll find the village of Montes, Cotorinho and after the exuberante river of Moinhos we’ve arrived to Soutelo.

Up next is the the mythical climb up the KMV Marão. All that’s left now are 3 kms with almost 800m of positive slope. Until you reach the Marão summit and the “Senhora da Serra”, the views through “O Reino Maravilhoso” are sublime. Take in the view and enjoy it.

Atferwards, there’s the long descent until the the village of Mafómedes. The view throughout the path is astounding and fills your soul with joy: cumeeira da Fraga de Erminde, Encosta das Lajes and Seixinhos. As far as your eye can see!

Once again you will gain altitude throughout herding trails and after reaching the base, you will precipitate down through a lush forest to the village of Póvoa.
Take a path past the Penedo Longo.
Arriving at the plateau of Corvachã, wander through the rock's edges, precipitating down a single track until the Carneiro River. Taking the final climb of this stretch, nature toasts with lush vegetation. Pardinhas is admirably set in this magical setting, and the water from its springs is the much desired gift that fulfills, recovers and forces you until it reaches Travanca do Monte. Here one lives and breathes silence and peace and finds the fullness of the senses.

Travanca, the refuge of Teixeira de Pascoaes, is still loved by writers and other art workers. Its charm awakens our senses to what is the largest megalithic necropolis in northern Portugal. The mysticism of the Serra of Aboboreira and the traces found there are the perfect harmony for meeting our ancestors, from thousands of years ago. This meeting ends as soon as you reach Aldeia Velha. The already more bucolic scenario is quickly invaded by an exuberant succession of magnificent waterfalls that run along the Goiva Stream. And you get to the picnic park of S. Simão de Gouveia.
And surrounded by successive waterfalls, right after the supply.

What they say

“Super well marked!
Definitely a race that you should consider, a technical course and with diversity of landscape, good gradient and climatic conditions, simply that added excitement to the challenge of concluding it. Thanks to the organization and the people of Amarante, we had a lot of fun. “
