    Serra da Estrela has two ski resorts, the main is just on the top of the mountain, on Torre.
    I could not see it because of the heavy snowfall and the road to Torre was closed on the days I had been there.

    The other ski resort is an artificial one, which you can see on my photo. It is located in Manteigas. It has a small area to learn ski and other to practice.

    In Serra da Estrela you may find good spots for paragliding. One of them is Linhares da Beira, considered the best in Portugal. I didn't visit this village, though. Near Manteigas they also do paragliding. If you're not familiar with paragliding you may jump/fly with an instructor. For further information contact the Paragliding School in Linhares da Beira.

    In Serra da Estrela you will find the only 2 ski resorts existing in Portugal. One of them is located on Torre and it is a "regular" ski resort. When we visited, as there was no snow, skiing was not possible. Nevertheless the chairs were working and some visitors we using it to enjoy the view from up there. The other ski resort is in Manteigas and it is an artificial ski resort, therefore usable during year-round.
