This training tour is meant for individual riders or small groups who want to improve their riding skills, while enjoying a true motorcycle adventure experience in one of the most off road friendly countries in Europe.

For this tour, we will always sleep in the same city (Santarém, considered to be the Portuguese capital of gastronomy), yet every day we will do a completely different track through a different region in order to get new challenges and new opportunities to learn and develop your riding skills.

You will learn, amongst many other things:

- The importance of body positioning in different situations

- How to brake properly and efficiently

- Tricks and techniques to save energy when maneuvering the bike

- How turn sharply at low speed, and how to turn fast using powerslides

- You will learn how to ride in sand and all sorts of terrains

- Clutch techniques for any situation

- How to use your suspension to deal with obstacles

- How to tackle hills and to recover from tricky situations

Day 1 - Warm up day:

(Includes: Lunch, Dinner, Accommodation in Santarém)

We will meet up in our headquarters in Santarém (transfers or nearby accommodation can be arranged for you) for the introductory briefing and a thorough explanation of the main learning goals of the day.

We will adjust the bike’s controls to your needs (levers, brake and shift pedals, handlebar rotation and so on), suit up, and hit the trails.

On this first day you and the tour guide/instructor will ride around 100km of handpicked tracks for being accessible and easy all year round.

There will be frequent stops in specific places to practice the many base skills you will need to become a true adventure rider; from adequate body positioning to being able to efficiently stop the bike, as well as simple tricks to help you deal with common problems like lifting up the bike or recovering it from a steep hill.

Lunch will be in a typical restaurant in one of many villages we will encounter along the way.

At the end of the afternoon we will come back to our hometown, have dinner and return to the hotel.

Day 2 - Onto the Coast

(Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Accommodation in Santarém)

You will be picked up early in the morning, receive the daily briefing and initiate the daily course.

This time the instructor will take you West, through mountains and plains onto the Atlantic Coast around Peniche, a city well known for the quality of their grilled fish, which we will have for lunch.

There we will ride along the sandy cliffs by the ocean before making our way back to Santarém.

Day 3 - Meet Alentejo

(Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Accommodation in Santarém)

After the usual morning routine, we will travel South-East onward to Alentejo. Through fast and smooth tracks we will cover a lot of distance, allowing us to make a short visit to the well known historical city of Èvora.

We are confident that your newly acquired skills will serve you well and turn this long day into an easy and relaxed experience.

The return to Santarém will be through a different route.

Day 4 - The moutains

(Includes: Breakfast and Lunch)

This last day will be the most challenging. We are going to ride North, into the many mountains you can find in this direction. Mountains mean steep hills, loose rocks and technical areas, but also scenic views over the region and amazing forgotten villages to discover.

By the end of the afternoon we will make our way back to Santarém, and finish our program.

Extra accommodation nights or transfers to other towns can be arranged, according to your needs.
