While exploring the area, glampers can also enjoy the incredible array of wildlife in the area. Deer and wild boar can be spotted, as can eagles, buzzards, lizards, and praying mantis, as well as lots of butterflies to name but a few.

Whether hiking or cycling through the trails, there’s much to discover. Popular trails include the Schist Villages trails, and climbers might be especially interested in the cliffs and caves of Buracas do Casmilo. In nearby Pedra de Ferida, there is a 30-meter high cascade with pools and a nice picnic area. Additionally, the glamping site is just a five-minute drive from the natural swimming pool of Louçainha, which is safe for children. The water comes from a mountain brook, and in the summer there are lifeguards.

For more cultural activities, glampers can head out on visits to Coimbra, Tomar, Fátima, and the Monastery of Batalha. There are adventure activities available in the nearby area as well. Inquire about kayaking, quad biking, hiking, and cycling opportunities, as well as fun activities for the kids.
