The 4 day ride is a round-trip of 6 days in total with 4 riding days and 3 out of 5 nights spent away in rural guesthouses and a 4 star spa hotel. Accompanying the group will be a lead guide, a sweeper guide and our 4×4 assistance taking your over night bags.
On Day 1 we will collect you from Faro airport or Loule train station (for those who prefer to fly to Lisbon and take the direct train) and transfer you to your hotel where we can give you advice on where to eat and drink at a selection of good value venues.
On Day 2 we will collect you from your hotel at 9am and take you back to our base 15 mins away. On arrival we’ll help to get you kitted out in full protective gear, introduce the quads and before leaving we will give you an all important safety briefing. At approx 10 am we will head out on the trails for a full day of riding where we aim to cover approx 120kms per day. We will stop for short breaks at places of interest en-route, for water and photo opportunities and to check that everything is ok. At approx 1.30pm we’ll stop for lunch at a restaurant in the hills to sample some tasty local food. After a relaxed lunch, we will continue riding for a further 3 hrs before arriving at a rural hotel or guesthouse in the countryside no later than 5.30pm. After some time spent relaxing we can then all enjoy dinner together with the other members of the Rooster team.
The next 3 days will follow the same format and at the end of the 4th riding day we will arrive back at our base where we can have a beer and a chat about the last few days riding before taking you back to your hotel of choice for your last night.
Possibility to spend Night 5 in a hotel at beach location (for a surcharge) in order to spend your last day either relaxing on the beach or we can organise an activity such as a boat/fishing trip or karting.
