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.

My friend and I really enjoyed this. We are reasonably experienced Mountain Bikers and the route had a good mix of very challenging sections and fun downhill blasts. Others in the group were less experienced, but Sergio was able to Taylor the route to suit everyone. He’s a top guide and a really great guy. Thank you for fitting us in to your schedule last minute - a real highlight!!!

The guide Sergio was great, however be aware that the trails are NOT for beginners, you should be have some mountain bike experience to manage narrow, bushy paths with gravel and tree roots mostly alongside ditches or ravines. Other than that, we biked through beautiful places and had a great experience.

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.
