Route & Programme

MTB Safari: A route designed for nomad bikers

The Route

Our route is specially adapted and improved for MTB riding; following the direction of the Rota Vicentina's Historical Way, which passes through towns and villages steeped in history.
Comprised mainly of rural trails, this is a classic Grand Route (GR),with stretches of cork tree forests, mountain ranges, valleys, rivers and creeks.
A true journey through time, local culture and the nature trails of the Natural Park.

The team helps you with no matter what and soon become your friends.
