“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking for new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” Marcel Prousel
Taking that step into the unknown releasing the accumulated pressure of a grinding routine is difficult. A cheeky 4 days escape for a completely new and different environment is a must to be able to cope with the modish way of living.
In the very northern part of Portugal, lies one of me most spectacular adventure parks in Europe. A cosy and welcoming environment with very clean facilities, Pena adventure park offers an array of activities for different levels of adrenaline.
In Pena park, you are able to have a contact with untouched nature where you can have a relaxed but also active time. There are activities for adults and kids, for different levels of capabilities. Some of the activities you may be brave enough to finish others courage might trip you over and let you glued to the ground.
On regards of what you can do in the park here you can find all the activities available you will certainly find something of your liking. Nonetheless, we would highlight and describe the gigantic Zip-line which a personal experience will be shared.
My personal experience and Why do I recommend visiting the park.
Probably the longest zip-line in Europe they said also one of the fastest. You smoothly glide through the valley for 1500 meters with a velocity that can reach the 130km/h.
The initial excitement is quickly crushed by a devastating thought of meaningless when you admire the valley and you actually realise what you are about to do.
All the prep of putting the harness and the safety equipment is quite terrifying until the moment you get into the van. Is in that little instant that you realise there is nothing else you can do, you go for it!!! The van trip takes roughly 15 minutes during that time your heart starts to pump and bounce at a higher rhythm until you get to the top and you look at the endless cable where the peaceful scenery and the warm weather will calm you down and the tranquility will take over your thoughts while you wait for your turn.
Pena adventure will provide you with a smooth and enjoyable journey through the valleys. From the experience, I wish I could do it once again so that this time I could enjoy the quietness and serenity that this blessed area of the country has to offer.
For a day with kids or more romantic weekend to create strong bonds with the other half Pena adventure allows you to be creative and express yourself.
Pena provides entertainment for kids within a safe and healthy environment.
If you are traveling with your family you are assured that you kid will have a busy day letting you rest and enjoy the Pena experience, you can stay on the Pena Aventura hotel, 4 stars Hotel that is just beside the park that will offer you a comfortable SPA while you have a relaxing view to the Ribeira de Pena mountains.
