PORTUGAL WILD COAST MTBike

DESCRIPTION

TRIP INFORMATION

The true experience of MTBiking along the Portuguese coastline

The Portugal Wild Coast is an incredible route program along the most beautiful coastline of Portugal. From the outskirts of Lisbon to the south-westernmost point of Europe, you will admire the natural beauty of different sceneries that offer stunning coastal views along the way. Cross two natural reserves and discover small fishing villages and some abandoned fortresses which remind us of the time when this coast was ravaged by pirates! The trip finishes at Cape Saint Vincent which adds a dramatic and historical full stop to this wonderful trip.

THE ITINERARY

ARRIVAL

Welcome to Lisbon! Our guide will pick you up at the Airport and transfer you to the hotel. Enjoy your rest here because tomorrow new adventures await you!

SESIMBRA to GRÂNDOLA

ODECEIXE to PEDRALVA

DEPARTURE to LISBON

The crossing of the Hills of Grandola will be through beautiful trails between Cork Oak hoods. The day will be mostly marked by the well-known ups-and-downs of this area. We will pass through some typical small villages and ride mostly on Cork hoods. You will enter the Natural Park close to the sea and arrive at the typical village of Porto Covo.

12.Portugal_Pedralva

The trip will start either from the hotel or the Fluvial Station in Belém (on this case a transfer from the hotel to the Fluvial Station will be provided). After crossing the river to the southern bank on the boat, the tour will begin and the first section will take place near the ocean with a mix of trails and secondary roads. You will get to the spectacular Cape Espichel with breathtaking views of the cliffs over the Atlantic Ocean. There is also a famous sanctuary built extremely close to the edge of the tall cliffs, the Santuario de Nossa Senhora do Cabo Espichel. The track continues now on the southern coast following several single tracks until we get to Sesimbra, a small fishing town on the southern slope of Arrabida.

GRÂNDOLA to PORTO COVO

Herdade Barras da Serra Hotel Mira Parque

A fantastic day with emphasis on crossing the Arrabida Natural Park, a group of small limestone hills near the ocean and a rare example of a very ancient Mediterranean vegetation, result of a very special microclimate and sharp topography. You will arrive at the city of Setubal, where we will embark on a ferry to cross the Sado River. You will disembark at Troia Peninsula and will follow the asphalt road to escape the sandy beaches that connect Troia to the mainland. The passage through Comporta is marked by the track between the rice fields. At the end of this long day we will reach Herdade das Barradas, a beautiful place close to Grandola town.

Leaving Odeceixe behind after visiting its incredible beaches, the next few kilometers will be following a funny single track next to an irrigation channel. You will arrive early at Aljezur with time to explore the narrow streets next to the castle. Then follow the rural trails between pine hoods until we get to the Bordeira village. Your next stop will be the amazingly beautiful Amado Beach. To get there we will go through valleys where we can find exuberant vegetation. You will find the “Carrapateira Pontal”, a beautiful peninsula that you will go around by bike.
