3 Challenges is as the name implies, a tour of adrenaline and fun, which will challenge you over 3 days and 3 activities: Trekking, Rafting and Canyoning.

Set off with an incredible hike of special trails hidden by the green of the mountains, paddle through the quick river in a rafting boat and conquer its currents and its natural obstacles, sliding down its rocks and slopes.

All this in the heart of Peneda-Gerês Natural Park.
