Property Description

Nestled on the shores of the Cávado River, amongst the sweeping landscapes of Northern Portugal, Selina Gerês is the ideal off-grid escape. Designed to offer an unforgettable outdoor experience, our destination is walking distance from Albufeira Gerês river beach, a 7-minute drive to Peneda-Gerês National Park, and a 10-minute drive from the main village center. Our upgraded dorms, private rooms, and lofts promise comfort and style, or, if you’re feeling at one with nature, check out our glamping tents for a night under the stars! On-site features include a restaurant-bar, cinema room, rooftop, yoga deck, and an outdoor pool.

Wake up with a morning wellness practice and a nourishing breakfast before heading to the village to explore historical and cultural hotspots. Feeling active? Head up to Peneda-Gerês National Park to spot local wildlife, hike incredible trails and take a refreshing dip in the waterfalls. Back at Selina, unwind by the pool or join fellow travelers up on the rooftop with a cold drink and a sweeping view of the river. End your day with a movie night or cozy up with a glass of Portuguese wine in our hammock. Whatever your travel style, we’ve got you covered at Selina Gerês.

Really nice hostel / resort, awesome people and really good facilities. If you really come here to hike it’s not the best location; it’s at least 2 hours walking along the road to a hiking path. But, there’s small sand roads you can use for a long walk, e.g. around the lake or up the hill to the miradouro Voltas de São Bento (it’s quite a climb though, and those sand roads on the hill are not well registered on any map, but you can get there). Or you get a ride from one of your roommates!

The facilities, security and quality of this place are first class. They have a swimming pool, a lake to sleep in and the dorms are showers are so comfy, private and clean. I felt really relaxed and comfortable here. Everything is bright and high quality. Even the common areas are fun and well put together. There’s not that many other people that are young and solo travelling so maybe not the place to meet a bunch of people, but I came here to hike so it was fine. They have a great restaurant with really

The staff at Selina were a great group, with each person being helpful and expert in different subjects. The hostel was nearly empty in the low season, but they rolled out all the same hospitality, good service, food menus, activity opportunities, etc. the same as in the peak season. We had a very nice time despite pouring rain all week. There were plenty of things to do in the hostel when it wasn't possible to go out. We liked it so much that we extended our stay.
