Northern Portugal Adventure - Porto

The "Northern Portugal Adventure" is a fantastic opportunity for any rider to explore two of the most well-known regions of this lovely country in a different type of guided tour. Starting and ending in the iconic Porto, Portugal's second-largest city, this unique experience will feel like a relaxing time away with two-wheel friends: motorcycles only, and no support vehicle, as the journey on the road is four-day long and the motorcycle boxes will be enough to carry all that is needed for the road.

Porto - Lamego

Our first day on the road is dedicated to fully exploring the Douro Valley in-depth, admiring its tiered vineyards rising from the banks of the river. Our route passes through the N222, a part of which was voted "Most Scenic Drive in the World" by a renowned British car magazine - from Peso da Régua to Pinhão, pure riding bliss! 

There are many viewpoints to be visited and plenty of opportunities for incredible photos, so have your camera ready. After lunch in Pinhão, we will cross the river to ride alongside the northern part of the valley and finally get back to the southern bank for a wonderful night stop in a traditional winery-hotel amongst the vineyards.

Lamego - Arcos de Valdevez

It's time to ride North! Today, we leave the Douro River via a stretch of the internationally famous N2, a road that links the North and South of Portugal to Vila Real, and then turn Northwest to continue our journey.

The roads ahead will be mainly incredible twisty stretches linking old villages where time seems to forget to move. As we get closer to Arcos de Valdevez, our gateway to explore the Serra da Peneda-Geres the next day, the subtle scenery changes give away the fact that we are now in the northern part of Portugal, close to Spain's Galicia.

Moving further North, we will visit Castro Laboreiro, close to the Spanish border, and enter Spain for a few kilometers before stopping to admire the stone corn granaries in Soajo. Our destination for today is the South entrance of the Peneda-Geres National Park, passing through Germil, another little village that shows the authentic Portuguese way of life.
