Details of Micro Tour
“A day in the Yellow Mountains, visiting wolf fojos, and cracking your head on the riddle of fifteen or twenty little houses lost in a slap.”
Miguel Torga, in a visit to Serra Amarela, in July 25 of 1945.

Climbing the Serra Amarela trail, we will cross slopes and valleys lost in the immensity of the mountains.

From the village of Ermida, passing through Branda de Bilhares, we will climb through cliffs and shepherds’ landmarks, up the mountain, accompanied by fantastic views of the most beautiful park in the country, Peneda-Gerês.

The silence is omnipresent, interrupted only by the sound of crystal clear water flowing through the cliffs. We continue to Alto da Louriça, passing through several patches of oak forest, which once covered the entire mountain range.

From Alto da Louriça to the place where we will sleep in the open, the views are superb, in addition to a landscape of wide horizons, we see flocks of garranos that stare, curious.

Late afternoon arrives and we set up camp on a ridge with views to the four quadrants. The night is filled with thousands of stars and the next day, filled with nature, is yet to come and full of surprises.

Finally, on the following day, we will descend the mountain to the Vilarinho das Furnas reservoir, where we will bathe in its fresh waters, and continue to the Cerdeira campsite, where we will have a well-deserved lunch.

A crossing that will certainly remain in our memory.

The route will be through the GR34.
