Located on the western edge of the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal boasts a varied landscape including rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, lush forests and rolling hills. From technical single tracks, challenging downhill runs, to rides through the beautiful countryside or along the coastline, there is something for every mountain bike rider to enjoy. With the help of our local guides, we provide three amazing locations in Portugal for you to explore:
Sintra, Algarve and The North.
Experience the thrill of Sintra's single tracks, technical steeps, and winding berms, all nestled among the majestic oak forests and granite rock gardens of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. From here, you can ride all the way down to the beach, finishing off with a rewarding dip in the Atlantic Ocean - the perfect way to end your day!
Algarve is known for its pristine sandy beaches and rugged coastlines. Just a short drive away from Faro (the largest city in the south) lies the Serra do Caldeirão mountain range, offering a truly unforgettable riding experience. With its sunny and warm climate, Algarve is the perfect spot for riding during the fall, winter, and early spring.
For an exciting and inspiring ride, head to the North of Portugal and explore the different riding locations near Porto.
