Full description
Start out your 5-hour mountain bike ride with a quick briefing by your guide before heading down the mountains toward the sea. You’ll have plenty of opportunities along the tour to stop and take in the incredible Madeiran landscapes. Admire the wide range of flora and fauna that is found only in the Macaronesia area, of which Madeira is a part. Madeira’s laurel forest is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the cycling tour you’ll head deep into the laurel forest. There are many options for your ride. If you’re an a experienced rider, your guide could take you on technical single-tracks, and if you’d rather just enjoy the scenery and the ride, you’ll follow an easier route. On some routes it’s possible to end the tour at your hotel. If that isn’t possible, you’ll be transferred back to the hotel by van.

It was a great experience. We did a very nice tour, sometimes heavy, but fun the whole day long. And a very special thanks to our guide Serge and his companion Robert and his son for the excellent guidance. The tour itself was already 100% but their presence during the whole day gave it finally a rating of 200%. Well done boys and thank you again for this great day.

Great downhill fun through great nature!

Equipped with very nice fullies we were brought to one of the highest mountains of Madeira. After some minutes of paddling we started riding the first single trails through the fields and forest. Our really cool and experienced guide was always search for the ride trails fitting for your group. He pushed us to our limits but never over them. During the tour we also had the change to enjoy the great nature of Madeira and to rest in two traditional Bistros to fill up our energy. One of my highlights next to riding a part of the Eduro World Cup track was at the end of the tour when we had some urban trails going trough some farmhouses down in the city. All in all we had 45km great fun riding 2000m down and only 600m uphill. I can highly recommend this tour for everyone how likes to go downhill! But they are also offering easier or heavier tours based on your experiences and wishes.
