In winter or summertime, Serra da Estrela is the perfect spot for mountain trekking. Whether by its rude and austere landscape of stone and granite, by the magical snow that appears from time to time, or by its diverse and wild fauna, or even for its rich cuisine, hiking in Serra da Estrela is not only conquering the highest point in Portugal mainland, but also getting to know, overcome, and fulfill oneself!
