The Camping Park of Entre Ambos-os-Rios, founded in 1998, is located at the peninsula created by the rivers Lima and Tamente, inside the boundary of the Peneda-Geres National Park, in the hamlet called Entre Ambos-os-Rios (Portuguese name for “between the two rivers”), Ponte da Barca in the district of Viana do Castelo, uppermost Northern Portugal.
The Peneda-Geres National Park was named a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It is one of the greatest natural attractions in Portugal with its rare and stunning scenic beauty and the ecological and ethnographic value and variety of fauna (roe deer, ponies, wolves, birds of prey) and flora (pine, yew, chestnut, oak and various medicinal plants). It extends from the mountains of the Gerês in the south, through the mountains of Peneda, to the Spanish border, in the North. Near the camping site you’ll find the Castle and Dam of Lindoso with its spectacular views, and São Bento de Ermelo Monastery, famous for its tasty oranges, originally planted by monks. You’ll also be close to Soajo village with its granaries (espigueiros, authentic small stone constructions for the storage of corn and other grains) and beautiful mountain ranges with waterfalls and natural lakes.
Situated in a protected area, the surrounding landscapes have suffered little impact by human beings, as demanded by the canons of the Nature Tourism.
