Hiking, scrambling and arduous or relaxing walking are sports that are easily practicable in the vast 75,000 hectares of the Montesinho Natural Park.

Walking routes are available from Lagosta Perdida (own routes) and also formal routes create by Montesinho Natural Park.

The landscape is diverse, with its lower areas being cultivated in the traditional way:

Flocks of sheep are still kept and watched over by the sheepdog “Cão de Gado Transmontano”.

The higher areas are wild and with very steep terrain, where the Iberian Wolf still prowls, despite being currently few in number (Approx. 250 in Portugal and 3,000 in Spain). Eagles, vultures and other birds of prey wild boar are often seen.

Lobster Perdida lends you written guides for hiking, scrambling and walking from the moment you set foot on the street, tailored to the casual hiker or the serious enthusiast.

Walk all day along the routes, or invent your own using the Portuguese military maps loaned by Lagosta Perdida.
