About Us

We are a passionate English/Portuguese two person team. We started this endeavor in 2023.

We have experience leading outdoor adventures on land and sea, and working with animals, nature and cultural heritage.

Our mission is to bring pack goats to Portugal.

Our Philosophy

At Caminho de Cabras we believe in the power of adventures to connect people to nature and heritage. Journeys on foot create powerful memories that give context to landscapes and traditions as we follow paths created by ancient herders.

We believe that people must experience wild places up close and first-hand in order to be inspired to protect them. Pack goats allow us to increase access for diverse groups of people, while at the same time ensuring that we have a minimal – even beneficial – impact on the habits we enjoy.

Sustainable Adventures

We prioritize eco-friendly practices in every aspect of our business, aiming to minimize our environmental footprint. Pack goats are a testament to this commitment, providing sustainable access to wild places.

Goat packing is a low impact alternative to many other outdoor activities and can be used to facilitate numerous other pursuits that would ordinarily require motorised transport or road access.

Animal Welfare

The well-being of our goats is of utmost importance to us. They are beloved members of our family and team, and we work hard every day to ensure that they are healthy, happy, and well-cared for.

Our goats are trained athletes and affectionate pets, thriving on the companionship and exercise that our adventures provide. A respectful and caring relationship with our animals enriches the experience for both our goats and our guests.

We work with several endangered native Portuguese goat breeds, offering them diversified uses that help to ensure the breeds’ survival. Our farm seeks to operate as a model operation for the highest standard of caprine care.

Unique Experiences

Our guided goat hikes, picnics, and expeditions are designed to immerse you in the stunning landscapes of Serra da Estrela, enabling you to build a personal relationship with the region. Each journey is tailored to provide a personal and exclusive experience, allowing you to explore the beauty of Portugal’s wild places in a way that few others have.

Educational Connection

We aim to educate our guests about the history, ecology, and beauty of the Serra da Estrela region. Our knowledgeable guides share insights into the local flora and fauna, the cultural significance of the landscapes we walk, and the role of pack goats in sustainable tourism.
