Description de l'activité
Discover the ancient architecture and natural charm of Guimarães on this guided two-wheel tour.
Travel to 605m above Portugal’s proudest UNESCO World Heritage Site on this MTB tour to Penha Mountain. Accompanied by an experienced guide, climb to Guimarães’ highest point and enjoy views that put its medieval heritage into perspective – reaching Mosteiro de Santa Marinha da Costa via technical single tracks and bone-shaking off-road terrain.
This activity is run & operated from the historical centre of Guimarães and travels to Penha Mountain at 605m. A 35km trail that visits local landmarks like Guimarães Castle, Mosteiro de Santa Marinha da Costa & Santo Elias cave, it includes 75% trails, 20% cycle paths, 5% roads and streets.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Guimarães Plaza for this 4 hour guided MTB tour. Perfect for those who want to combine sightseeing with some light off-road action, this tour follows mixed terrain through the city and up to Penha Mountain at 605m. Starting out from the medieval centre, kit up with hardtail bikes and protection, cycling through the ancient cobbled streets and out into fields to meet the Paçô Vieira trail. Working your gears as you start the climb, pick up the pace as you cross forests, fields and rural villages to reach the city’s highest peak – reaching Penha Monastery for the best views of Guimarães. Whilst the tourists take the cable car back to the city, you’ll be testing your suspension as you discover the area’s lesser-known single tracks, winding through wild yet well-maintained dirt trails to reach Pousada de Santa Marinha da Costa and the historic area of Couros – learning about the area’s spiritual past and historical present. As you traverse the plateau, enjoy the rugged terrain that includes furrows, berms, boulder fields and root-laden forest tracks – returning back the plaza in time for happy hour!
Considered a moderate route for MTB enthusiasts, 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.
