***Note*** This is a winter experience that can be enhanced when done in conjunction with the Douro Valley Experience. Message me to learn more! The Experience begins from the moment I pick you up in Porto. While in the car an explanation will be given regarding the history of the region of Serra da Estrela. After a 2h drive, we will arrive at Coudelaria Madre de Água. Once there, we will be greeted at the Cheese-making facility with a degustation of typical products from Serra da Estrela - Wine, cheese, jams, and olive oil. After the degustation, we will follow the process of producing the cheese, from milking the Bordaleira sheep to curing the cheese. We will also interact with the animals that produce the milk for the cheese: the sheep and goats. A visit to the vineyards will follow, considered the best ones in the Dão region. Afterward, we will interact with different animals, typical of the region: Serra da Estrela dogs, Cats, Chicken, Pheasants and the Lusitano horses. The lunch will be served at the restaurant of the farm - the traditional meals of the region, but with a modern twist! After lunch, we will head towards the tallest point in Portugal - the peak of Serra da Estrela. There you will have some free time to explore the site, the shops, take pictures or - who knows - build a snowman! We will then get back to Porto - where we will arrive by 7 PM.
My name is Sérgio Costa and I'm a biologist. For me, the main reason to undertake biology was the contact with nature, animals, plants and share this passion with others. Following my highly successful experience in the Douro Valley, I am now presenting an entirely new one, in an undiscovered region of Portugal - Serra da Estrela. This region is one of the best places to visit in Portugal during Winter. Leveraging my science background, I can give you unique insights and interpretations from geological history, fauna (wild and domesticated animals) and flora of the region - as well as the unique products of Serra da Estrela: the wines of the Dão Region - largely overlooked but with excellent taste; as well as the cheeses, considered the best ones in Portugal! As usual, our trips are performed in an electric vehicle, a Tesla Model X!
