Description

5 Days Portuguese Adventure - Training & Tour

Portugal is one of the most off-road friendly countries in the world. Blue skies, sunny days and thousands of dirt roads crisscrossing this peaceful country in all directions: a true enduro paradise. And the food? The food is more than good! Together with our resident trainer and guide, enjoy a 5-day adventure designed for anyone who wants to improve their off-road skills and apply them on Portugal's many trails.

The first day of training and test riding is followed by four exciting days of enduro adventure. The total distance you will cover during this 5-day tour is about 750 km with about 80% off-road with low difficulty. Thus, this combination of training & tour is perfect for riders who want to get their first taste of off-road and want to approach enduro riding.

We are happy to adapt both the design of the entire tour as well as the level of difficulty individually to your needs. Just contact us and we will do our best to make your perfect combination of Enduro Tour & Enduro Training possible.

Day 1: Training (approx. 60 km)

We meet in Santarém in the morning (transfers from local hotels/train stations are available) and prepare for our full day training. After everyone is briefed and equipped, we will ride over very easy off-road trails to a nearby forest where we will spend the rest of the day learning the basic off-road skills needed for our upcoming adventure. Among other things, we deal with the following techniques to learn how to ride enduro:

- Tricks for maneuvering the bike in tricky situations.

- Body positioning and traction theory

- Slow turns and techniques to avoid obstacles

- Clutch and balance exercises

- Emergency braking

- Powerslides and forester turns

- etc.

At the end of the day we will return to the hotel and have dinner together.

Day 2: Ride towards the Spanish border (approx. 180 km)

Our adventure begins! We will head east towards the fast roads of the Alentejo region, surrounded by pastures and small bucolic villages. Staying true to the training theme of this tour, we will stop from time to time to try new techniques and learn how to overcome certain obstacles. In between, depending on the season, we will be lucky enough to take a swim break at one of the many river beaches we will pass anyway. We will spend the night in Castelo de Vide or another place near the Spanish border. There we will have dinner together again and enjoy the local delicacies.

Day 3: Today we will go to the mountains (approx. 180 km)

Today we will head north on our motorcycles and make our way to the highest mountain range in Portugal, which measures up to 1993m at its highest point, the Serra da Estrela. The landscape on our way will change drastically as we make our way from the dry plains of the Alentejo region (south of the Tagus River) to the greener forests in the north.

The destination of the day is hidden in the valleys of the mountains: Piodão, a village that is a World Heritage Site. This old village is built entirely of slate and invites you to spend a pleasant evening.

Day 4: Heading towards the sea (about 160 km)

We start in the direction of the southwest and thus at the same time in the direction of the sea. Also today the landscape will change noticeably when we leave the mountains on our motorcycles and meet the more populated coastal region. We end the day near Fátima, a religious pilgrimage site known worldwide for the Virgin Mary.

Day 5: Along the sea to Santarém (approx. 180 km)

How could we end a Portuguese tour without showing you the sea? That's exactly what we'll do on our last day together. We'll ride along the Atlantic coast, through Nazaré (famous for its record-breaking waves), S. Martinho (one of Portugal's most famous bays), and finally past Peniche (Portugal's most sought-after surfing destination). For lunch today we will have grilled fish from local catch - how could it be different on the Atlantic coast.

On the way back to Santarém we visit the famous castle of Obidos and have a coffee in the salt mines at the Rio Maior. Around 5pm we return to Santarém, drop off the bikes and ride you to your hotel or airport/train station, depending on your further plans.

This is our basic package for a compact training and riding week. For those who want to expand their experience in Portugal, we suggest a few extra days with us. There are so many routes leading to so many great places that we just want to share them with you! You can simply add extra days during the booking process or contact us in advance with your individual requests.
