In this program we enjoy hiking in the middle of nature, from the top of its mountains to the beautiful chestnut forests and valleys bathed by the Lor River. We walk through virgin forests where the hand of man is barely noticeable, such as the Devesa da Rogueira, the biological jewel of Galicia. One by one we go through all the small villages, of great landscape and ethnographic wealth, on a route that will transport you in time.
