PORTUGAL WILD COAST MTBike

DESCRIPTION

TRIP INFORMATION

PORTUGAL WILD COAST IS AN INCREDIBLE MTBIKING ROUTE PROGRAM ALONG THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND UNSPOILED COAST-LINE OF PORTUGAL!

From the outskirts of Lisbon to the most southern point of Europe, you’ll discover and admire the natural beauty of the different scenery, offering stunning coastal views along the way, crossing two Natural Reserves and other similar places. It will be a mix of mountain and sea, starting in Belém and going to Cape Espichel and Arrabida Mountain on the first day. The following days will consist in the crossing of Grandola and Cercal Mountains.

You will discover some small fishing villages and some abandoned fortresses that reminds us of the time when this coast was ravaged by pirates! The trip finishes at the most southern point in Europe, Cape Saint Vincent, which adds a dramatic and historical full stop to this wonderful trip.

After crossing the river to the southern bank on the boat, the tour will begin and in 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.

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.
