There are plenty of reasons to visit Yellowstone National Park. As well as being the first National Park in the world (designated in 1872), it’s a place of simply outstanding natural beauty. From geysers and waterfalls to forests and lakes, Yellowstone is bursting with things to do and see.
My second hike in Peneda-Gerês National Park started and finished in a small village of São Bento. The trail led me up to a lookout point high above the valley and offered some amazing views. It didn’t go as smoothly as the as the PR3 hike I did the previous day yet it was still an awesome experience.
Hiking in Peneda-Gerês National Park was high on my list of things to do in Portugal. Even though I only had less than two days to explore the park, I discovered an area of stunning natural beauty and managed to fit in a couple of hikes as well as explore a pretty town of Gerês.
