“If you never do anything else in your life, come to Portugal for an off-road riding holiday with us.” – Gwyn Barraclough, Senior Instructor, Off Road Skills.
Gwyn’s a big fan of taking customers on our Portuguese Paradise trip and rightly so. Five days of frankly epic riding in the stunning hills of the Algarve region in Southern Portugal make for a special trip.
Escape the UK winter and fly down to Faro airport where you’ll be met by our driver and shuttled to our base – a four-star spa hotel in Vilamoura. Each morning, our fleet of BMW GS bikes will be lined up outside the hotel waiting for you. We ride into the hills and spend each day enjoying the endless trails that thread their way around the mountains. Water crossings, windmills and abandoned mountain houses are linked up by a mixture of flowing trails, technical singletrack and fireroads. We enjoy lunch out each day, with the morning and afternoon trail rides linking up local coffee shops when it’s time for a break. In the evenings you’ll be spoilt for choice by the huge selection of restaurants around the marina.
Partners are welcome for a small room supplement and can enjoy the luxury resort, tennis courts, jacuzzi, gym and private beach. On the middle day, there’s an option to take your partner on a road ride as a pillion.
Great accommodation, incredible trails and our experienced instructors make this the off-road riding holiday of a lifetime. Join us in 2018 for a riding holiday you’ll never forget.
