Snowy Serra de Estrelas

Snow on the Serra de Estrela, by Topsy Turvy Tribe, Fundão, Castelo Branco, Portugal

The Serra de Estrela mountain is stunning but nevermore so than when it’s covered in snow. Mainland Portugal’s highest mountain, at 1,993 metres, it can be seen from all over the Castelo Branco region. We suddenly turn a corner and there it is, in all of it’s snowy glory.

In cold weather, the Serra da Estrela is the only place in Portugal where you can ski, snowboard, sledge or even ride on a snowmobile. We visited the natural park and played in the snow during our first stay in Portugal, two years ago. Although we haven’t yet made the one and a half hour drive to the snow, we are able to marvel at the mountain from afar. What a fantastic view!
