Starting this mountain bike tour from Sintra you will climb up the hills. Here you see the first single-tracks leading you into the luxuriant vegetation. It is an amazing winding way!

The overall difficulty level of this tour is 2, Moderate (level 2.3 between 1~5, precisely). It is recommended for enthusiast bikers.

Sintra Hills is considered by many as “Mountain Bike Meca in Portugal”, and we must be careful and respect the forest and everything around us, because we are in a National Park.

Our way continues riding down and these trails take us to the westernmost point in Continental Europe, the famous Cape Roca. This place is visited by thousands of tourists every year and we can also see many motor bikes. This is the place where “…the land ends and the sea begins…”, these are the words of Camoes (a Portuguese poet who lived in the 16th century).

After admiring this beautiful place and its cliffs, our way continues along the dirt-roads to a very small beach which is hidden within the cliffs but very populated during the Summer.

TESTIMONIALS

“I am not an avid mountain biker, but my friends and I booked the “mountains to see” course with Portugal Bike. It was one of the best vacation moments I’ve ever had. However, this review isn’t just about the course, it is to note that Portugal Bike was a great company. My friend accidentally overpaid and they quickly refunded the extra payment. Then we had mistakenly provided the wrong pick address for the next morning, but they reached out to me via email and got that fixed. They took care of everything! Bikes, GPS, helmets, a cell phone in case of emergencies… Everything! We were out in the mountains in a foreign country and we never felt lost once! This company gets 5 stars hands down! Excellent service, Excellent quality, Excellent bikes, and above all else… The bike tour itself is unbelievably gorgeous! Do yourself a favor, if you like outdoor activities and you’re in Portugal… Sign up for one of these tours!”
