With this Advanced Mountain Bike Ride, you’ll lose most of the calories, which you have gathered during your stay in Porto. Join us for this epic MTB Ride in the outskirts of Porto! We will spend most of the day in the saddle, riding in the “Serras do Porto” mountain range. 

Let me show you where I have been riding in the last 9 years, and what are my favourite climbs and downhills. Fortunately, the Porto Mountains are not lacking them!

On the tour, you can expect a 4-5 hour ride (depending on the pace), with 40-45 km and about 1500m+ elevation. It begins in the morning hours and it lasts until the middle of the afternoon. Do not worry, we are going to rest a bit too. We are going to have a lunch stop in a small restaurant hidden in a canyon.

We will ride 80% in a forest, surrounded by eucalyptus trees. Pedaling along the River Ferreira which flows through a rocky valley, leading us to a village which has less than 10 inhabitants and houses are made out of stones. There will be great viewpoints as well, where we can appreciate the views of Porto.

 There is an opportunity for group tours and private tours as well, please contact us for more detail!
