The Eco Lodge

Explore the Area

The Serra da Estrela region is rich in ancient history, culture and natural beauty. 

Out of the Norm Tours is based here at Cara Creek Eco Lodge. Rent a mountain bike to venture independently, or even better be guided by Ross for the very popular Dolmen Mystery Tour to explore clues left in the earth by our ancestors 6000 years ago.


At our doorstep is the Mondego River. A peaceful way to pass a hot afternoon is paddling on one of our Stand Up Paddle Boards along the Mondego Valley. Alternatively book a kayak trip with Rock and River.


The peak of the Serra da Estrela (Torre) is a scenic drive to the top. In the winter, it's a popular place to ski, snowboard and sled. In the summer it offers hiking trails, water falls, and gorgeous mountain water swimming spots like Loriga.


On the way you'll see shepards guiding their sheep and pass gift shops selling artesanal cheeses, pottery, woolen goods and other souveniers.

Popular nearby museums to visit are the Olive Museum in Bobadela and Bread Museum in Seia.

Cara Creek Eco Lodge


Lounge by the infinity pool; star gaze from the hot tub; break a sweat in the sauna; wild swim in the creek; read on the river beach; paddle board down the Mondego; workout in the open-air pavilion; hike to the waterfall... There's plenty to enjoy no matter what you're in the mood for!



Sleep in close proximity with nature with the comforts of a cozy bed in one of our eco pods - every "glamper's" (glamorous camper's) dream. Alternatively, book a private room in one of our sustainably renovated stone houses.
