Would like to get out from the city, already ate enough „Francesinha”? Join us for a half day mountain bike ride in the outskirts of Porto. The “Serras do Porto” is a mountain range spreading on the Eastern and Southern side of Porto, which gives plenty of sporting opportunity for those who have a passion for mountain bike or trail running.

On the tour you could expect a 2-3 hour ride, with 17-25 km and about 300-700m+ elevation. It begins in the morning hours and it lasts until noon, with an occasional stop for a good coffee during the ride.

Trails in the Porto mountains

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.
