Panorama Sintra

Panorama Loop

 45km – 750m elevation

A day tour to take a loop around the Serra de Sintra. From the historical town of Sintra we go down northside to Colares and Praia Grande. Along the impressive cliffs and through the evergreen forests we make our way to charming villages in the evergreen forests at Serra de Sintra and to the breathtaking cliffs and beaches around Cabo da Roca.
With marvellous panorama views we reach the coast at the virgin coast near the famous surfspot of Praia do Guincho. From here a cycling lane along the ocean leads us to the pretty coastal town Cascais. The chick beach promenade and the charming oldtown invites for a final loop and a recovery drink to round up our ride.

Villages at Serra de Sintra

With 40km and some sharp uphills Sintra Cascais Loop requires some fitness. We mainly ride on gravel roads, most technical sections are optional. Safe cycling is required, but no advanced MTB skills are necessary.

Serra de Sintra - Trilho dos Burros

Sintra All Mountain

40km – 850m elevation

The beach of Guincho is the ideal start for the more challanging trails of Serra de Sintra. A first long climb brings us to the crest of Serra de Sintra. From here we discover the region on the best trails of the zone. Depend on the weather conditions and our riding skills we go up to Santuario da Peninha, down north to Praia de Grande or to the lakes around Quinta do Pissao.

Be ready for some sharp uphills and some thrilling moments on the downhills. Uphill or downhill Sintra Trails is a challenge for everyone! Sintra Trails is our ride for experienced bikers. As a group tour it requires some bike experience to keep up with the group. As a private tour at least a good fitness level is necessay to enjoy this ride.

Ericeira MTb

SIntra - Ericeira

45km – 650m elevation

Through the forests and along the cliffs: This ride combines the amazing rough coastline with the traditional agriculture of the interior and leads us deep into Portugal.
Small and charming villages and plenty of fields and forests border our way from the historic town of Sintra to the coast near Azenhas do Mar. A scenaric leads further along the cliffs. Views reach from Cabo da Roca until Peniche and one beautiful beach follows the next.
Ericeira, our final destination, is a real pearl of a coastal town. The route is dominated by many short up- and downhills. Without MTB-skills you probably will have to push your bike once in a while, but it’s still doable if you bring a good fitness. It’s an tiring daytour, but worth every effort!
