July 03 (Tuesday) San Joao D'Arribas (confirmed)
  • ROUTE: From spain till Miranda do Douro and then North along Douro River for around 10km direction to Aldeia Nova. There you should go direction river.
    • Food should be bought in Miranda, because in the little villages it can be difficult to find a shop. They exist, but are very small and they don't guarantee that you will find enough. So better to stop in Miranda to buy food. (supermarket is closing at 8h).
  • DESCRIPTIONS: You are arriving from Torregamones (last village in spain before entering Portugal) in Miranda do Douro. Once in Portugal you go north and arrive in Aldeia Nova. Close to this village, there is a very nice spot where you can camp (it's called San Joao D'Arribas) and has a spectacular view over the Rio Douro.
  • SLEEP: San Joao D'Arribas - tents
  • CONTACT person: Joeri
July 04 (Wednesday) Atenor (confirmed)
  • ROUTE: San Joao D'Arribas - San Pedro da Silva - Atenor
    • From San Joao D'Arribas we go to Pena Branca where we can visit the center of A.E.P.G.A., where they have donkeys. After Pena Branca we go to Palancar (between Pena Branca and Malhaldas) where we can enjoy a bath in the rio Fresno. After we continue towards Malhaldas - Genisio - Vilar Seco - San Pedro da Silva. In San Pedro da Silva there is a nice parque de merendas where we can lunch. After we continue to Uva - Mora (can be difficult, we need to climb) - Teixeira - Atenor. In Atenor we can camp on another place of AEPGA, where there are also donkeys.
    • In the morning we go to Pena Branca, where we have breakfast and get an introduction to the donkeys. If you want, Joeri can stop in Miranda and buy some bread and milk, because Joeri will come by car (can't stay for the night with group). Once we had breakfast and introduction about the donkeys, we go to Palancar and take a bath. Then at Lunch, he will also find out if we can buy food at San Pedro da Silva.
    • Except for Aldeia Nova to Pena Branca, all roads are in asphalt and in good condition.
  • DESCRIPTIONS: .
  • SLEEP: Atenor - tents
    • Once in Atenor, we can stay on the field of AEPGA. Joeri will ask to the local shop if she wants to open when you arrive. Joeri guess it won't be a problem. Joeri checks out if it is possible to cook inside, but is not sure about it.
