Private Full Day Tour to Explore the ‘Portuguese Venice’, Aveiro, Including Paiva Walkway
The Paiva Walkways is an 8 km boardwalk through ruggedly beautiful scenery in Arouca Geopark. Zig-zagging down rocky hillsides, hugging cliff faces and winding along the left bank of the Paiva river, the Passadiços do Paiva were the winner of the World Travel Awards 2016 for the Most Innovative Project in Europe and Europe’s Leading Tourism Development Project 2017. It will be a path through biology, geology and archeology. Arouca Geopark is recognized by UNESCO as a Geological Heritage of Humanity.
