Take a break from society

Peneda-Gerês National Park, Arcos de Valdevez, Portugal

“ The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. “ — Into the wild

And is there better horizon than the one Peneda offers?

We could say nature was created just for us: for us to return to our natural state, to tap into the wildness within us, to remember the raw beauty inside and outside ourselves. But, to be honest, in today’s fast-moving world, it’s hard to breathe slowly again and be able to take in the simplicity of what surrounds us.

We are spending endless hours in air-conditioned rooms, with neon lighting, in front of the screens, in big cities, stuck in the traffic, rolling through our Facebook feed. We are trapped in a rat race of problems, moody co-workers, “what to cook today” dilemmas, constantly imagining an escape, but never really chasing it.

Chris McCandless - “Into the Wild”

Sometimes giving yourself a break from society is everything you need.

Sometimes running away from the city buzz is the is everything we are looking for.

Either alone or with company, take a break from the current routine and explore Mother Nature — the natural water streams coming directly from the mountains, the trails going through the old forests, the animals running around the fields. Let’s take a break from the grind and celebrate our freedom, celebrate our being alive.

Nowhere is more free and alive than nature.

Let’s take time to disconnect from the addictive technology, from our work goals, and from the chaotic city hustle. We turn down the high energy of the outside world and turn up the stillness within. In doing so we open up the doors to connect with the most important person in our lives: ourselves.

This is why we created Penedino— to challenge people’s routine.

To achieve this, we developed structures which allow our clients to feel the culture of the land, never letting behind the spirit of adventure and discovery.

What do we deliver?

1. Mountain trails to discover the wildness of the sight

2. Local accommodation services in Peneda to stay with your partner or family and enjoy the calmness of Peneda

4. Geolocation and monitoring of wild animals, so that you can see them first hand

Don’t think too much. Take a break.

Be one with nature.
