What people are saying about Caniço, Portugal

One of the most beautiful hikes I've ever done! The hike is definitely doable for anyone who is physically active and the hiking trails are very well developed. We were well prepared by the organizer and felt comfortable. On the way back we even made a short stop in Santana and Kevin told us about the culture there. We are more than happy for the experience and would recommend it to anyone!

The day before, we have received information about what car, at what time and place to pickup, the next day happened exactly as planed. Had a nice drive to the first peak had detailed info about where to meet up after walk. We watched nice sunrise and walked with beautiful scenery although the walk was a bit hard for me, but can be managed in the last. Everything went as expected.

We had a great morning! Despite the physical effort of this hike, we were able to see breathtaking landscapes and witness a magnificent sunrise. Our transfer to the course with the guide Kevin went well, he was very friendly. Very nice experience, we recommend. Thank you and see you soon

Everything was great and very well planned. Both very nice and helpful. Thanks for the numerous tips. AND even normally trained people can easily do it within the time.

Very well organized, picked up on time and had a pleasant return. Good information, we got tips about what to bring and the route the day before the transfer
