Lisbon’s home trails

Sintra & Ericeira

Sintra to Ericeira-
Lisbons North coast

Only 45min from Lisbon you find a true trail paradise: West of Lisbon, between the delta of Rio Tejo and the rough Atlantic is located the 500m high Serra de Sintra. Thrilling singletrails, smoove panorama roads, top class panorama trails and a lot of rural charm make Serra de Sintra a must go for experienced riders. But: No pain, no gain! Sintra’s sharp uphills require all your legs!

Further north the terrain got easier for beginners. Ericeira, well known by all surfers, but also a unique bike scenario. A great mix of panorama rides and technical trails along the coast, relaxed rides trough wine yards and rural areas mixed with metropolitan youth and surf culture.

Ericeira MTb

SIntra - Ericeira

45km – 650m elevation

Through the forests and along the cliffs: This ride combines the amazing rough coastline with the traditional agriculture of the interior and leads us deep into Portugal.
Small and charming villages and plenty of fields and forests border our way from the historic town of Sintra to the coast near Azenhas do Mar. A scenaric leads further along the cliffs. Views reach from Cabo da Roca until Peniche and one beautiful beach follows the next.
Ericeira, our final destination, is a real pearl of a coastal town. The route is dominated by many short up- and downhills. Without MTB-skills you probably will have to push your bike once in a while, but it’s still doable if you bring a good fitness. It’s an tiring daytour, but worth every effort!
