Quinta do Fijó

A Quinta do Fijó is a tourist accommodation, classified as a country house, where we carry out Equestrian Tourism. At our equestrian centre, the horses are trained and prepared for being ridden by people with or without experience. We provide various types of activities, namely riding lessons, which may be vaulting or in the saddle. Apart from that, we offer horse rides from one and a half hours (advised for people without experience) to three to six-day treks with full board. On this type of treks, the rider has the opportunity of appreciating the cuisine from the Minho region and the beautiful landscape of the Peneda Gerês National Park and the Corno do Bico Protected Landscape. Come and get to know the North of Portugal, using the oldest means of transport in history!
