Cycling in Azores
Explore the Azores’ alluring volcanic landscapes by mountain bike for a unique and exhilarating experience. The islands boast a plethora of trails ideal for all levels, as well as an array of fascinating nature and unusual volcanic terrain.
From ultra-technical single tracks which connect mountains, beaches and fajãs to roads surrounding lakes and mountain ranges which flourish with native fauna and flora, the Azorean islands offer a mountain biking experience for every taste and skill level.
If you would rather bike on the road, the islands also provide a large road network flanked by hydrangeas and Japanese cedars. These roads connect some of the Azores most fascinating places for breath-taking landscapes and culture, pastures, mountains and villages.
Go from village to village and discover these delightful islands, making sure that you ride through the less visited parts of the Azores.
Most roads in the Azores are very quiet and often you find yourselves cycling alongside thick hydrangea hedges and hillsides heavy with cryptomeria forests. We transport your luggage leaving you free to enjoy your ride each day.
Our trip starts in Ponta Delgada, which is situated on the largest of the Azores islands, Sao Miguel, or as it is more commonly known, The Green Island. It is in Ponta Delgada that we will spend our first few days exploring the trails.
Feel the adrenaline and thrills of rushing down your bike towards the sea and lakes on trails magnificently provided by nature – feel alive!!!
