A one-night package to delve into the forests of the river Eume (Fragas do Eume), the great Atlantic forest of Galicia, through trails that lead into the heart of this location, with giant ferns and century old trees.
We recommend that you arrive in the morning and settle in at the nature hotel Hotel de Naturaleza Casa Fragas do Eume. There you are provided with all the necessary information so that you may follow the trail of Os Cerqueiros on your own. It is a very easy and well indicated trail, full of charm and that reveals one of the most beautiful aspects of the forests of the river Eume.
After the trail, and as an option for the afternoon, we propose that you enjoy the Adventure Park (optional) that belongs to the hotel, where you will experience a rush of adrenaline when you zip on the canopy, cross the Tibetan bridge, or overcome the numerous and fun obstacles up high in the great outdoors.
After a rest and a hearty breakfast, we propose that you park your car at the leisure area of the Alameda (tree-lined boulevard) and that you take an e-bike trip to the monastery of Caaveiro. You have two hours to enjoy the landscape and you can even stop for a refreshment or a snack of tostas (slices of toasted Galician bread with a topping) at the Taberna de Caaveiro. At the monastery, take advantage of the free guided tours to discover all the corners of the monastery and not miss a single detail. We suggest that you plan this activity carefully so that your arrival coincides with the beginning of one of the guided tours.
In the afternoon you have time to visit the town of Pontedeume, and in addition to roaming through its streets and visiting the famous tower known as Torre dos Andrade, we propose (optional activity) taking a kayak trip along its peaceful estuary. If there happens to be high tide you can head towards the mouth of the river Eume, and if there is low tide, you can explore the lovely coves that border the estuary and that are practically inaccessible by land. The lush and jagged coastline offers incredible views and is a perfect plan to end your adventure through these lands bathed by the river Eume.
INFO: We recommend that you confirm the timetables and periods for the guided tours to the monastery of Caaveiro with your travel agency.
