Mountain Biking

The Algarve is quickly becoming the top destination for Mountain Biking in Europe! With plenty of coastal trails to explore, unspoiled countryside and national parks to explore! Great half day and full days riding is available no matter your level and it’s a fantastic family activity!

Our highly qualified and friendly instructors have the best local knowledge of the trails, tailoring each ride to suit the needs of the group! If you’re more experienced, we’ll team you up with other riders of your level so there’ll be no waiting around for others to catch up.

The weather in the Algarve lends itself perfectly to a comfortable days riding, with warm seasons with plenty of sun and you’re not just limited to the summer months!

Descent down the mountain range behind Lagos, with stunning views from land to sea! With a variety of routes from red through to orange range, it’s an exciting days biking for even the most experienced rides.

With over 2,000 vertical meters of down hill riding, each route lasting around 30 minutes. With the shuttles waiting shuttles to get you back to the top, there’s hardly any uphill riding! Our maximum of 6 riders to a vehicle and guide there’s no wasted time waiting for the cautious.

The mountain range of the Algarve boast an incredible view! Starting at the highest peak, you’ll descent on dirt roads and quiet tarmac to the lake, perfect for cooling off in summer. There’s a short climb to our favourite view point, the perfect spot for lunch.

Following the edge of the reservoir until we reach the dam wall, for the brave it’s a great jump to the cooling clear waters, or an easy climb down to the water if you’re a little less adventurous.

The ride is varied and a full days riding, ideal for those with a little more experience. There are small uphills but a back up vehicle is on hand is your legs are feeling tired.

Our relaxed country day trips are ideal to break up a long week of biking and perfect for novices looking to get to grips with mountain biking. The countryside in the Algarve is raw, unspoilt and perfect of exploring by bike!
A varied ride from 30-45km depending on the group! With the option to explore dirt roads with some steeper climbs of the cliff tops to take in the beauty of the south coast or take on the challenge of some technical singletrack trails with the expert guiding of our Mountain Bike instructors.
The famous National Park of the West Coast of the Algarve offers fast descending tracks, technical routes down to beaches and exciting climbs to take in the incredible views of the wild coast of the Algarve. This 35km is a challenge, but completely worth it!
This incredible 40km ride follows the cliff tops of the south coast towards Sagres. Double tracks and gnarly single tracks all the way, with a cold beer or two at the beach cafe to cool down after the ride. A vehicle to bring you back to the Lodge!
A gentle 45km ride out of Lagos through the Algarves wild farmlands. Following the canal, you’ll love the singletracks and technical rides in the brilliant guided route!
