The 3 day trip is a round-trip of 5 days in total with 3 riding days and 2 nights spent away in a 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 local venues.
On Day 2 we will collect you from your hotel at 9am and take you back to our base 15 minutes away. On arrival we’ll help to get you kitted out in full protective gear, introduce the quads and before leaving 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 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 3 members of the Rooster team.
The next 2 days will follow the same format and at the end of the 3rd day we will arrive back at our base where we can have a de-brief over a beer about the last few days riding before taking you back to your hotel of choice for your last night.
