Agostinho Costinha

I grew up in the countryside and still living in a Natural Park in Northern Portugal. I love to meet new people and explore new countries in the world specially countries with National Parks and many wildlife.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I´m specialized in guided and self-guided walking and cycling holidays in Northern Portugal. We offer holidays from 7 to 13 days combining Gerês National Park, Serra de Arga Natural Park, Douro Valley and Camino de Santiago (Portuguese Coastal way to Santiago de Compostela)."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I worked in some Portuguese hotels and restaurants and many people asked me about walking and cycling tours because they would like to explore Northern Portugal, i don´t saw any companies in the area, so i decided to quite my job and start my own business working as a tour leader and show the undiscovered parts in Portugal. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I spent one week in Tromso, Norway to try to see the Northern lights and explore Norway on foot, during my trip i saw the Northern Lights in the dark sky during all nights :) "
