This is as far I guess that you can get off the beaten path. Well, at least it is a very good attempt to do so! These are two tiny, tiny villages on the edge of the Penada-Gerês National Park in Northern Portugal (which is actually the only designated National Park in Portugal).
I got a tip about these villages from tourist office inside the National Park, after mentioning that I would like to visit some really off the beaten paths spots. And he was spot on with his tip, as I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. It is so off-the beaten path that it might be tuff to find it on your map ;-)
