A bike ride over the ridges of the four mountain ranges

The biking tour between São Pedro and São Macário covers about 40 km. On our way we will cross four different mountain ranges, meandering our way over their ridges at an altitude of between 700m and 1100m.

The numerous ascents and descents on this tour make the difficulty level heavy going. Nevertheless, with good fitness levels and an adventurous spirit the bike ride is well accessible.

The surroundings are impressive with beautiful open vistas and deep winding valleys hiding wild water rivers. The traditional slate and granite villages can transport you back in time as you see the ancient practices of sheep, cow and goatherding and small scale agriculture are still very much a part of daily life.

In the spring the rolling slopes gain a pink and yellow glow created by the flowers of the heather and gorse that dominate the area.

The activity ends with a picnic or a traditional delicacy in a local restaurant after which we will be brought back to the accommodation by transfer.
