From schist to the Zêzere


In order to enjoy the autumnal season in the best way possible and to discover the surprises that this territory conceals, ZêzereTrek offers a programme full of activities for 2, 3 and 4 November. 2 November is dedicated to lovers of photography and Nature. During the morning, we will enjoy the rich landscape of the Vila de Rei waterfalls. After lunch, the destination will be Água Formosa, one of the Schist Villages, where the route will move between schist and tradition. At the end, there will be a snack made with local products.

On Saturday, 3 November, we’ll be going to the neighbouring municipality of Sardoal. Religion and wine-production will be among the topics to be addressed. There will also be an opportunity to taste regional products. On Sunday, 4 November, ZêzereTrek will take participants to see the Castelo de Bode dam and reservoir, to experience the landscapes of the region of Ferreira do Zêzere on a walk through the riverside villages. The starting point will be in Dornes. On the return a lunch will be offered with produce of the season.

I arrived in this area for professional reasons related to forestry. I found the features of the local landscape much more exciting than anything else I had found in the country. I worked with other local tourist companies until, in 2015, I decided to set up my own project. I really like to give a personal stamp and a different service, to show that this territory has enormous treasures to see and explore, that only a local company will be able to unearth and show.
