“The essential ingredients for a good mountain bike ride are simple: fantastic views, great paths, interesting features to roll over, and a damned good cafe at the end of the ride.”

The Algarve has it all with the added bonus of sunshine all year round, empty trails and never ending downhill tracks, making it the top destination for Mountain Bike Holidays!

Spring and autumn are the perfect time to join us, still sun filled and mild, but away from the blistering heat of the summer months make for comfortable riding.

With a variety of runs, cross country and downhill. Our dedicated Mountain Bike Package is ideal for all riders, our MIAS qualified instructors are experts in our local trails and tailor each week to your riding ability.

Cross Country Days

The beginning of the week we’ll ease you into riding with some incredible cross country routes. Great for exploring and taking in the breath taking views. Our Cross Country days include:

45km Canal loop, with trails weaving in and out of Algarvian farmland on technical singletracks.

40km South Coast exploration on the stunning south coast, heading toward Sagres. Cliff tops views with an gnarly singletrack all the way.

35 Km West Coast trail on dirt roads, fast descents to the beaches on the Altantic Coast.


Our Two downhill days on the mountain range of Monchique. Starting in Foia, the highest mountain in the Algarve at 1000m, a drink on the peak and a chance to take in the view before a gnarly descent on dirt roads and single tracks to the lake for a chance to cool off and swim.  There are some small climbs but there is a backup vehicle all the way if you don't want to pedal up!

Second day on the Down Hill is on the vast mountain range behind Lagos. With some of the longest downhill trails in Europe, descents of over 2,000 vertical metres! Our support vehicle on hand for the climbs and small groups ensure you won’t be left waiting for others.

We've been surfing for a couple years now but the instructors still had loads of tips to improve our technique and it's great knowing with their local knowledge you can make the most of the conditions that day being driven to the best spots. Pascal & Henriette France
