Guided trip
We're going for a new hike and bike experience, this time in Portugal in the mountains of Serra da Estrela! This is the highest peak of Portugal, but totally feasible for all levels of experience. My name is Cedric, I am an experienced hike and biker who traveled in multiple destinations through the world visiting places with a bike. I love being in the mountains and exploring tracks by electric mountain bike. I will guide you through the forests of the Portuguese countryside. The trip starts from Porto, where we will do an e-bike visit through the city on day 1. You can arrive earlier to discover more of Porto. We will leave Porto in the morning of day 2 to arrive in the mountains by noon. On day 3 we go for an electric mountain biking adventure. Day 4 is a full hiking day and day 5 we will leave the mountains in the afternoon after visiting the typical village of Seia with its traditional and locally made cheese and then come back to Porto. What is included in this *VIP private pack*? - E-bike rental in Porto - Comfortable car rental for 5 persons - Fuel and taxes for the transportation from Porto and return and local trips - Accommodation in Porto (private room in apartment) - Accommodation in Seia (rental house, private room) - E-MTB rental for 1 day - insurance for German and Austrian residents What is not included: food, restaurants, personal expenses You have the possibility to share the room for a lower total price by choosing the standard trip package.

Serra da Estrela

Day 3-4
Day 4: Hiking (full day) with picnic! We will explore the waterfalls and see different species of animals. At this period of the year, the waterfalls have the biggest amount of water due to the melting of the ice.
5

Seia

Day 4-5
Accomodation: VIP package includes a *private room* We will be sleeping in the village of Seia at the entrance of the mountains. I have selected a Four-Bedroom House (Entire holiday home of 228 m²) with Private pool, Balcony, Garden, Mountain View, Air conditioning, Private bathroom, Dishwasher, Barbecue, Terrace, Coffee machine, Free Wi-Fi. I'm sure we will find the time to try all these amenities during our stay. Bring your swim wear (or not?) for the pool and also to dip in the waterfalls! Let's enjoy the delicious local meat on the BBQ, and in april we should have some sun to enjoy the terrace for a morning sunny brunch! The idea is to be sportive during this trip but also to enjoy some relaxing time and wellbeing in the fresh clean air from the mountain. I have chosen a big and comfortable house, so each one can enjoy his holidays and also have some private time off from the group if you need.
