Why the Azores
Explore the Azores’ alluring volcanic landscapes by mountain bike for a unique and exhilarating experience. The islands boast a plethora of trails ideal for all levels, as well as an array of fascinating nature and unusual volcanic terrain.
From ultra-technical single tracks which connect mountains, beaches and fajãs to roads surrounding lakes and mountain ranges which flourish with native fauna and flora, the Azorean islands offer a mountain biking experience for every taste and skill level.
If you would rather bike on the road, the islands also provide a large road network flanked by hydrangeas and Japanese cedars. These roads connect some of the Azores most fascinating places for breath-taking landscapes and culture, pastures, mountains and villages.
In addition, you can cool off after a long day biking at one of the archipelago’s many bathing sites, natural, warm water baths which are located in tidal pools or the ocean.
