Rip up the travel guide and experience true Guimarães on this Enduro tour.
Forget sightseeing and discover the city’s wild side on this MTB tour to Penha Mountain. With Portugal’s proudest UNESCO World Heritage Site as your backdrop, burn through the backcountry as you experience the area’s infamous single tracks and forest downhills – using the scenic cable car to facilitate up to three unique descents.
This activity is run & operated from the historical centre of Guimarães and travels to Penha Mountain at 605m. Using the Guimarães Teleferico, the trail includes three circuits on 90% trails, 5% cycle paths, 5% roads and streets.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Guimarães Plaza for this 3 hour enduro MTB tour. Suited to the downhill enthusiast that’s more interested in singletracks than sightseeing, your itinerary will include the area’s best downhill terrain – using the tourist cable car to cruise up to Penha Mountain – your gateway to some of Braga’s best MTB trails. Starting out from the medieval centre, kit up with hardtail bikes and protection, cycling through the ancient cobbled streets to the Guimarães Teleferico where you will cruise up to 650m above the city. From here, the terrain opens out into mixed routes that cascade down the mountainside – specially engineered to offer serious highs and bone-crunching lows for experienced riders only. With a mixed-bag of trails on offer, spend an afternoon experiencing the vertical descents, rugged forest runs, drainpipe singletracks and rutted berms that are guaranteed to test your suspension – and your technique, returning back the plaza in time for happy hour!
Considered an advanced route for experienced MTB riders only, this tour includes rental of a 29”MTB and protection. Guests can choose to upgrade a mid-range hardtail or full suspension at an extra cost - SPD pedals and platform also available.
