The Serra de Grândola is a hidden and little-known natural paradise in Portugal. With the start and a large part of the route within the 600 hectares of cork oak forest of the Herdade das Barradas da Serra, and always guided by the owners, the routes surprise you from the first descent, where you finally enter a denser forest, with shadows, streams with small rock waterfalls, wooden bridges, single tracks that wind between cork oaks and panoramic viewpoints at the top of the mountain that let you see the endless kilometres of Atlantic coastline.

This programme is an invitation to discover a mountain biking paradise, housed in a haven of rest, relaxation and good food, in an experience designed to awaken the senses.
