Lisbon Trails

Lisbon, Monsanto Park, Serra de Sintra, Ericeira

MTB days: dirt roads & single trails & bike shuttle (S0, S1, S2)

5 days 5 stages

Over the last years experts discovered Lisbons west as a top class bike resort. Where the smoove Rio Tejo meets the rough Atlantic, the evergreen Natural Park Sintra-Cascais form a real bikers paradise. The 500 m high Serra de Sintra offers singletrails with panorama views over the Atlantic and the whole region. Lisbons bikers and trail runners shaped a perfect singletrail net into the 500m high Serra de Sintra, full of panorama points to the ocean, to Lisbon or over the whole region. Uncountable singletrails and dirt roads connect the coastal towns and rural villages with historic charme.

With two nights in Lisbon, two night in Sintra and 2 nights in Ericeira we will show you the best of best trails in the whole area!

1st stage: Lisbon City Trails

Time to arrive and discover Lisbon. On E-MTBs we do a loop through Lisbon. Oldtown, gardens, trails, palaces and viewpoints. We take you on an introduction up and down Lisbons hilly old town and the city forest Monsanto Park.

40km, 800m inclination (E-Bikes)

2nd stage: Sintra Loop

Time to get familar with our bikes and Lisbons soil. The best for a warm up is a loop around Serra de Sintra. On a mix out of single trails and dirt roads. The ride around the famous mountain ranch outside of Lisbons offers unbeatable panorama views and much more.

The evergreen mountain full of cultural hotspots and breathtaking nature, is class of it own! From the oldtown of Sintra we go down to extended Praia Grande bordered by the massive rocks of Serra de Sintra. After a climb to the top of the rocks and a lunch break with breathtaking views around Cabo da Roca, a great singletrail leads to the surfer spot Praia Guincho and later along the ocean to Cascais.

We finish our day in Cascais with a beer on the beach and a shuttle back to Sintra.

45km, 1000m inclination

3rd stage: Sintra trail day (bike shuttle)

It’s action time. With a bike shuttle we will trail more than 2000m this morning. Kamekaze, Trilho dos burros or trilho das pontes, only to name a few of them: From the peaks to the ocean, from the south to the north to the west, we will do all must-rides of Serra de Sintra!

In the afternoon it’s recovery time. Hanging out in the gardens or on the beach, visiting the cultural sides of Sintra or simply riding on, this afternoon it’s all up to you!

40km, 2000m downhill only (shuttle)

4th stage: Trail surfing from Sintra to Ericeira

Much less known as a bike resort, but at least as pretty is the coast from Sintra to Ericeira! Between high cliffs and long beaches we accumulate some challanging uphills. But every climb is worth it! The trails on top of the cliffs is one of the best Portugal got to offer! The coast between Sintra and Ericeira in wide parts is a natural bike park! On the way from Sintra to Ericeira one beautiful beach follows the next one. The view reaches from Cabo da Roca until Peniche.

Ericeira is a picturesc coastal and fisherman village that invites to stay for longer. Here we will find our second accomodation, where our luggage already waits for us.

45km, 1100m inclination

5th stage: Lizandro Trails

No pain, no gain, also on our last day. A true jungle trail leads us up the little river Lizandro. Leaving Ericeira to the interior we discover the variety of Portuguese agriculture. Wine, Olives, Figs, and all kind of seasonal fruits border our way. Ancient ways leads us through abandoned villages and to historic wind mills before we reach Mafra with the impressive Palacio Real which recently became UNESCO world herritage.

After a quick bite in Mafra we return to our hotel in Ericeira and finish up this week with an adequate dinner and some beers!

40km, 800m inclination

Born and raised in Germany, Portugal became home over tha past 10 years. Since 4 years I have the pleasure to live my passion for bikes as a full-time job.
The great coastal and mountain trails between the Algarve and Ericeira are my home trails. I padeled up and down the coast from Lisbon to Sagres on a dozen of different ways, in different companies and speeds. Now I’m looking forward to show you my personal favourites!
