We are located on the only National Park of Portugal, Peneda-Gerês, surround of pure nature and wild animals.
We are a family company that loves animals, and we moved from the capital, Lisbon, to the mountains, chasing our dream.
When we receive our guests, we treat them like family, and this is one of the things that makes the difference, and when you meet our horse family you will fall in love :P

Our Worldpackers will be treated like family, and they will be well received. We will share knowledge and for sure they will have an amazing time at our place

Loved my stay with Pedro and Marina. Working with the horses in the beautiful mountains was really incredible. They are both very accommodating and if you ask them for something always try and make it work of possible.
You are signing up for a remote mountain area tho, so as said before bring some books :)
Thanks to everyone from the team 🌱

I had a very good experience at Ecotura. I came in a period when there weren’t any guests, so it was quiet calm. The job was mostly in the morning : we had to clean the boxes, refill the water and bring some of the horses in the stables while others would be put on a closed pasture to let them eat all the day. In the evening, everybody was free in the fields.
We lived (with another volunteer) in a caravan in front of the house.
Mariana and Pedro were very kind and we could ask them all the questions we had in mind. If you enjoy animals and nature it is a good place to have a break.

I had 3 great weeks at Ecotura. The work was exactly what was communicated and the hosts were very nice and always there to help if we needed something.
Plus the landscape around is absolutely beautiful. Make sure to bring a book or something as it is a very quiet, relaxing place :)
