Discover the Beauty of Serra Amarela with the Tobogã

Serra Amarela is one of Portugal's natural jewels, located in the extreme northwest of the country, in the Minho region, more precisely in the Peneda-Gerês National Park. This majestic mountain range stretches for around 30 kilometers, presenting a stunning landscape that combines dense forests, deep valleys, crystal-clear streams and rich biodiversity.

The name "Serra Amarela" derives from the golden tone of the rocks and yellowish vegetation that make up the landscape, especially during spring and summer, when the sun's rays give the landscape a warm and welcoming tone.

This mountain is a paradise for lovers of nature and adventure tourism. The trails, waterfalls and natural lagoons offer unique opportunities to explore the region's natural beauty, from relaxing electric bike rides through oak and chestnut forests to refreshing canyoning routes that offer stunning panoramic views.

In this article, we will delve into the wonders of Serra Amarela:

Discover the Points of Interest of Serra Amarela

Lindoso Castle and Its Granaries:

Explore the history and culture of the region when visiting the castle and the famous Lindoso granaries. These ancient granite structures, used to store and dry cereals, are a living testament to the local agricultural tradition and provide a fascinating insight into rural life.


Soajo is a region with one of the most picturesque typical mountain villages in the region. Situated among stunning landscapes of mountains and lush green valleys, Soajo is an unmissable destination for those looking for authenticity and traditional charm.

Waterfalls and Natural Pools:

Cool off in the crystal-clear waterfalls and lagoons hidden along the Serra Amarela, some of which are difficult to access and, therefore, very well preserved. With clear, refreshing waters, these natural oases offer a perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy the serenity of nature.

Vilarinho das Furnas Dam:

Explore the fascinating Vilarinho das Furnas Dam, a historic landmark located between Serra Amarela and Serra do Gerês. More than just a source of energy, the dam submerged the village of Vilarinho das Furnas, which had been inhabited by several families for centuries. The village's flooding was a defining moment in the region's history, resulting in the displacement of people and the loss of a unique cultural heritage. When the Dam has less flow, you can see some of these submerged villages.

Serra Amarela also plays a crucial role in preserving local culture and traditions. In the picturesque villages that dot the slopes of the mountain, visitors can discover the authenticity of rural life in Minho, where traditional agricultural practices are still preserved and where you can taste delicious local cuisine, rich in dishes based on fresh, seasonal products. .
