Mountain biking in Portugal is about Serra de Sintra next to Lisbon or Monquique at the Algarve. But how to talk about mountain biking and not mention Serra da Estrela, what houses the highest peak of the country. Even if the peak is hardly accessable on trails the national park between Covilha, Seia and Guarda with almost 2000 m is worthy to visit.
How to go?
From Lisbon best to reach by train from Lisboa, Santa Apolonia to Covilha or Guarda or with connection in Coimbra to Guarda. Price is about 20,- one-way.
Bike transportation is very limited on this trains it convice to purchase a ticket in advance and save one of the seats that permit bike transportation
