The Tour Of Portugal : A new take on adventure riding...

Guided tours have never really been our thing here at Adventure Spec, but neither have full blown competitive events either. In an ideal world we like to ride freely with our friends exploring tracks and trails across beautiful landscapes, particularly if it's somewhere new...but, for some people that's a big new challenge and a little support is needed.

How about a chance to head off into the wilderness with your friends and ride until you drop, with a 4* hotel and great food every night?

Oh, and most importantly a full tracking system capable of keeping an eye on your progress so that if there are any issues you'll be fully looked after.

For us this means being able to try stuff we wouldn't normally try unsupported, without someone following us everywhere. A total winner, freedom to ride and support!

If you're interested take a look here Portugal is an amazing place to ride and we love this idea so much we've agreed to share it with You (and will be heading down oursevles for a ride of the trails early next year!).

1000’s of tracks and trails need exploring by adventure riders in Portugal

The Adventure Tour of Portugal is 3 days of pure riding in central Portugal, which is quite simply the best place to ride and adventure bike in the world.

  • -Ride 1000’s of tracks, fire-roads and empty roads
  • -Full safety tracking per rider - explore and be safe
  • -Blue skies and feel the warm of riding in the sunshine

  • -A fun lighthearted navigational competition
  • -Social atmosphere on the trails and in the bar
  • -Superb luxury hotel

“Adventure riding heaven” - this is the place to ride, enjoy the scenery and socialise with friends.

“We rode for 140kms on tracks and back roads and only saw one person up in the mountains - and they waved to us. There’s no-one there, it’s brilliant!” Jason Funge

The freedom to ride - 1000’s of kilometres of roads, fire roads and tracks that are perfect for adventure riding with everything starting on the doorstep of the four star hotel.

You are in control
The Adventure Tour is 3 days riding where you select your own route and also the difficulty of the route. So you can select a road route interspersed with very easy going off road or you can select the full off road route, it’s up to you. By planning your own route, you choose the distance you want to ride each day, 100km or 300km in a day, some riders could do more!

Ride your own bike
Riding your own bike is a real plus point, so we have arranged to ship your bike to Portugal and back as part of an "all inclusive” deal. You just fly in and meet us at the hotel.

Safety is a top priority
Our GPS rally tracking system is used so we monitor all riders for safety reasons and the tour is supported by two support vehicles.

Routes tested by Adventure bikes
The routes have been ridden on KTM 950’s with dual sport tyres and an Africa Twin on road tyres. Also the time of year we are riding at means the trails will be dry and rideable on the bigger bikes.

A relaxed atmosphere
There are fantastic cafes and bars to enjoy along the way, this is intended to be a fun tour. But if you want to go for the trophies you can ride all day. There will be a beach barbecue on one of the days as the final checkpoint.

A friendly competition with trophies presented by Patsy Quick
It wouldn't be a RallyMoto, Desert Rose and Adventure Spec event without a little friendly competition so the route you take earns you points over the three days and you need to back by a certain time otherwise there are penalties. The winners will be announced and the trophies handed out at the Awards Dinner on the final night at the hotel. This is a fun evening !!!!

Luxury all the way
Our hosts are the Villa Pampilhosa Hotel, a 4 star luxury hotel in central mountainous region in the heart of Portugal. We return to our hotel at the end of each days riding - so this our base for the event.
