NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC DISCOVERS PORTUGAL'S PENEDA-GERÊS NATIONAL PARK

Peneda-Geres is a unique and surprising national park that combines in a very peculiar way human and wild life. It has been like that since the Stone Age.

The author Tom Mueller and the photographer Peter Essick discovered Peneda-Geres with the portuguese biologist Francisco Alvares, and they wrote: "Many parks celebrate pure nature, but Peneda-Gerês is memorable for its juxtapositions: wolf dens within sight of human homes, ancient villages in the shadow of wind turbines."
 
Don't miss their story and the breathtaking pictures in the article "The Delicate Balance of Portugal's Premier Park". In the end, you will fall in love with this region of Portugal. To read the full National Geographic article click here.

"The partnership with the Heritage Hotels is a natural answer regarding our strategy of working with the best. Quality is a supreme value in our tours", Eduardo Cláudio, Portugal Trails’ Managing Partner.

The Heritage Lisbon Hotels were created with the idea of promoting charming hotels that reflect Portugal's and Lisbon's tradition and culture. Installed in old houses and small historic buildings in the historic centre, these boutique hotels offer an intimate and welcoming environment.  

Hotel Britania (photo) is the perfect example of The Heritage Lisbon Hotels’ philosophy – A genuine Art Deco Boutique Hotel in the Historic Centre of Lisbon.
The charming art-deco Hotel Britania, part of a project by Cassiano Branco, the illustrious Portuguese modernist architect, is located on a quiet street alongside the cosmopolitan Avenida da Liberdade. The only hotel to remain intact until today, this hotel records the glamour of the 1940’s.

Hotel Britania was ranked  9th in the "Top 25 Small Hotels in Portugal" and considered #1 in Lisbon by TripAdvisor.
