Description

Every enduro fanatic dreams of destinations with winding, playful routes where the locals accept riders with open arms. Luckily, you need not travel to the ends of the earth to make this fantasy a reality since Portugal is regarded as the last off-road paradise of Europe for a reason; there, offroading is not only legal and accepted, but even dog walkers wave at bikes as they roar by on the trails.

Waking up to cinematic panoramas, we’ll start each day enjoying crisp ocean breezes as we start the day’s ride, guided by Diogo who will help us explore the best of the region. Our constant companions will be long sandy coastlines, dense overgrown forests, rocky outcrops and narrow passes, sharp twists and turns, and clear crisp water splashing around us as we traverse the forest streams. These trying routes culminate in breathtaking plateaus with stunning views and cooling atlantic breezes, the perfect spots to take a break from the challenging rides.

After thoroughly tiring our engines, we will toast our adventures poolside or explore one of the hidden bars in the cobblestone streets of the charming oceanside town. Our days off between demanding days of riding will be spent at the group’s whim, sightseeing in Lisbon or Sintra, surfing and relaxing on the beach or even just chilling in our villa. The week-long trip will give us ample opportunity to enjoy everything that makes Portugal worth a visit: fresh seafood, iconic hams and cheeses, delicious wines and of course, the Mediterranean climate and leisurely pace of life.

Our guides have a lot of local knowledge so they will happily share their favourite places in town for our lunches and evening drinks!

ROAD CONDITIONS

This trip consists of mainly off road routes, requiring explicitly technical skill. Prepare for demanding regions with rocky, sandy terrain, as well as muddy river crossings.

MOTORCYCLE GEAR

Every rider must wear protective gear: a motocross/enduro helmet with chin guard, chest protection armour, knee pads and motocross/enduro high boots are essential. We can provide a limited amount of protective gear on-site but if you have your own, now is the time to use it. Don’t forget to bring your waterproofs as well, it’s worth preparing for cloudy days!

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION

We will ensure transfers from Lisbon airport to the accommodation and back. The Honda CRF300L bikes will provide our transport for 5 days (excluding the days of arrival and departure). Transportation needs that arise outside of the organised program will need to be covered individually.

ACTIVITIES & SIGHTS

In addition to exploring the diverse Portuguese landscape through the best adventurous motorcycle routes, we will get to know the Mediterranean lifestyle, culture and the regional cuisine. On days off between demanding days of riding, we will have rest days spent as the team wishes, exploring Lisbon or Sintra, surfing and enjoying the beach, or taking some well-earned rest by the pool.

Program

DAY 1 - ARRIVAL

Arrival to Lisbon, where a private transfer will wait to take us to the oceanside town where we can enjoy the fresh air and gorgeous scenery. We'll settle into our accommodation and get acclimatised during a barbeque in the garden.

DAYS 2-3 and 5-6 - MOTORCYCLING DAYS

The second day will start with the roar of our engines as we set off to map the area, led by our trustworthy enduro guide, Diogo. Through dense thickets and shady river valleys, over rocky mountain sides and sandy ocean shores, we will cover around 100-150 km on each of the four motorcycling days, riding across endlessly varied terrains.

DAY 4 - REST & RELAXATION

To ensure we can fully regenerate from days filled with taxing rides, we will have resting days where everyone can relax or explore to their heart’s content - by bike or otherwise. If you wish, we will organise city tours to Lisbon or Sintra, or you could even try your hand at surfing, since Ericeira is also known as Europe’s top surfing destination. Our bikes will be at our disposal on these days too so anyone wishing to hop back in the saddle and explore the area by bike can do or, but chilling all day by the side of the pool with a drink in hand is also totally acceptable!

DAY 7 - DEPARTURE

Once we have enjoyed everything our bikes can offer and revelled in our last night together, we will head to the airport in a private transfer, filled with unforgettable adventures!

The program is subject to change at any time. The final itinerary depends on current weather conditions and the group’s endurance.

    Q&A

    Not at all. The accomodation has rooms with 2-3 beds but if you don't want to be paired with one of your super friendly group mates, you can ask for a single bedroom for an additional fee, please request this in the application form.

    EU citizens do not require a visa to enter Portugal.

    You will need a driver's license valid for motorcycles of at least 250 cc calibre.

    You should expect rough terrain and even some possible tumbles and falls so protective gear is a must. Motocross/enduro helmet with chin guard, chest protection armour, knee pads and motocross/enduro high boots are all essential. We are able to provide a limited amount of protective gear on-site but if you have your own don’t leave it at home. Don’t forget to bring your waterproofs as well, cloudy days may come!

    April isn’t known to be a particularly wet month in Portugal, but rain can come at any time and it’s always better to be over-prepared!

    Motocross/enduro helmets with chin guards are our recommendation and if you can, bring your own! We can provide a limited number of helmets but bear in mind that these will all have been previously used by others.

    “Road” is definitely not the right word! Prepare yourself to ride through dense thicket and narrow tracks overgrown by roots, cross rivers and rocky plains, be battered by mud, sand, grass and pebbles as we navigate tricky twists and turns and encounter almost any type of terrain imaginable - but certainly no concrete!

    The tour will be led by a GoBeyond guide with extensive motorcycling tour guiding experience as well as substantial local knowledge about Ericeira. In addition, there will be a professional, English-speaking local guide to accompany the group, who not only knows the region like the back of his hand but works as an off-road motorcycling instructor and would be happy to help you improve your technique!

    We recommend packing at least two bags: one larger suitcase that will be left at the villa and a smaller backpack for daily use that can carry all your essentials: waterproofs, camera, water bottle, snacks and other assorted knick knacks you may need on the road.

    The local currency is the euro. There will be plenty of exchange kiosk at the airport and near our accomodation, but you can pay by card in most places as well as find plenty of ATMs along our routes.

    Once we have finished the daily rides and safely stowed the keys, pool or ocean side drinks are even recommended!

    You will need insurance that covers all motorcycling accidents and is valid in Portugal. If you require help, we are happy to assist you in finding the best possible insurance.

    Expect an oceanfront, private villa with rooms containing 2-3 beds. A place where the open air pool with panoramic views, tennis court, billiard room, gym and outdoor grilling area all contribute to a true feeling of luxurious relaxation.

    No need to worry about something like that, since Diogo will not only be there to show us the daily routes, but as mechanical backup, clad with spare parts and ready to fix anything. In case of malfunction, you would simply have to pull over and enjoy the cooling ocean breeze as Diogo gets to work fixing your bike.

    The best way to explore some of the most spectacular landscapes and remote regions on Earth is on a motorcycle.

    Just think about it: crossing the Himalayan range with its 5000 m high passes would be simply impossible on foot, extremely hard to ride by bicycle, and plain boring driving in a car.

    If you ride with us, you will have a comfortable and safe journey, thanks to our backup vehicles and the service background.
