Full description
Embark on a 6-hour electric bike tour with 4 different modes of assistance, making climbing the Sintra mountain a lot easier, even for those used to a sedentary lifestyle. The tour begins with a briefing on how the bikes work, at Martim Moniz Square in central Lisbon. You’ll then head to Rossio station to catch the train for Sintra. During the train trip you’ll have time to let your guide know if you’d like to visit some of the palaces along the way or if you just want to cycle. When you arrive in Sintra, you can visit the National Palace if you like. Most of your cycling tour takes place within the natural park of Sintra-Cascais. You’ll have the option of visiting Quinta da Regaleira, built between 1904 and 1910, and a place renowned for its symbolism, magic, and mystery. Shortly after you’ll pass by Seteais, a former 18th-century palace that is now a 5-star hotel.   Continue your trip along roads flanked by majestic groves until you reach the entrance of Monserrate Park and Palace, one of the most beautiful creations in the Portuguese Romanticism style. Arrive at Colares, a place that’s well known for its vineyards. Continue on to Penedo village, where you’ll enjoy breathtaking views from the atrium of the church, before cycling on to Urgueira village. Take a break for lunch in Azóia village, where you’ll find a great variety of restaurants. With renewed energy, continue your tour through an ancient forest and make your way up to the Peninha Sanctuary, located at 488 meters above sea level. From here, you’ll have a panoramic view of the Espichel Cape and Arrábida, to the south, Carvoeiro Cape and Berlengas, to the north, and the entire Sintra mountain to the north-east. Returning to the centre of Sintra, you’ll cycle downhill and have one last look at Pena Palace, an important monument of the Portuguese Romanticism movement. You’ll be traveling with an informative and helpful guide, as passionate about beloved Sintra as about cycling.  Alternatively, go down to Guincho wild beach – with its never-ending dunes and typical winds that are so treasured by windsurf lovers – until you reach the bicycle path to Cascais. Return to Lisbon through the beautiful town of Cascais by train where you will have one of the most amazing views over the Portuguese coast.

I'm well traveled and have taken many tours (and a competative bike racer). This tour was 100% the best tour I've ever taken. Getyourguide partners with local tour companies and my local tour company's guide's name is Daniel. Ask for him. At first they gave me a hybrid type bike which I was not comfortable on (being that I only ride road bikes and mountain bikes). Within minutes they swapped it out with a Cannondale 29er mountain bike which was my style, fit well, and it had high level components. It was an awesome time. I saw stunningly pretty sites, delicious custard tarts, coffee, and great conversation with Daniel. He is well versed in Portuguese history and speaks English well. I could not ask for a better guide or local tour company. I actually paid the price for two people even though it was just me and I feel that I got my money's worth. It was raining and I did not care. I wanted to ride in the rain and Daniel obliged me.

Best tour I've ever done

Everything was just perfect here, the weather (not too hot, attention! Don't forget a windproof jacket for the downhill run in the mountains), small group (there were only three of them, no delay, no troublemakers ... everyone could ride a bike ... ) lunch (menu with fresh fish or meat, no one here either ... who nags) and then this bike tour ... an unforgettable experience. Sintra (short and nice, before the crusaders are picked up by buses ... it goes on again) great short breaks worth knowing, beautiful paths through forests up into the mountains (breathtaking view of the western point of Portugal) fast, varied descents and Breaks on the beach. Back along the Atlantic ... Photo stop and coffee at the Boca de Inferno, then interesting facts in and about Cascais ...
