Permission for access must be sought in advance and all trips must be made on foot along set routes. Group visits can
be arranged for a minimum of five people. The nature workshop of Ribeira Grande and the activities it offers are highly
recommended for school groups and other collectives. It is a unique experience, isolated in nature and covering the
wolf’s extensive hunting grounds. On some of these routes a surprising glacial cirque can be seen and also several
waterfalls, such as the Arcos.
Of special interest in the Ribeira Pequena is the enclosure route which takes us to the area where deer and other
ungulates live in semi-liberty. The stars of the Park are the deer, mountain goat, bucks, chamois and the mouflons. They
inhabit enclosures which facilitate control of the population and give visitors one of their most pleasant memories.
O Invernadeiro is the heart of a vast, practically unpopulated mountain region. The highest peaks are found on the Queixa
mountain range, where the Manzaneda mountain station stands at 1,782 metres, and the San Mamede mountain range
(1,619 m). The region has abundant rain and snow falls, but also significant seasonal periods of drought.
From A Pobra de Trives we can ascend to the Manzaneda winter station, whose many tourist options mean that activity
is not just limited to the ski season. It is the starting point of several hill walking routes in search of ancient glacial activity
in the mountain. We can also opt to continue on to Celeiros, the municipal capital of Chandrexa de Queixa.
