The Azores are the undiscovered gem of European cycling destinations.

CyclingThe Azorean biking scene undergone a step change in recent years. Cycling is no longer seen as a niche hobby, with road biking, cycle touring and mountain biking becoming increasingly popular with islanders and visitors alike.

CyclingThe larger islands of Sao Miguel and Terceira are good options for road biking – particularly Sao Miguel which offers a mix of scenic coastal routes, and more challenging climbs around Pico da Barrosa and the western caldera at Sete Cidades.

For tourers, a circumnavigation of Sao Miguel is a fulfilling challenge, riding hotel-to-hotel with your luggage handled by our drivers. We’ll provide you with online maps and GPX files for navigation, and a wealth of suggested things to see and do enroute.

Cycling Having one base on your chosen and a selection of rides during your stay also works well, or if you’d just like to include a hire bike and a few self-guided rides during your family holiday – anything’s possible. The increased popularity of e-biking makes it easier to explore the islands at your leisure on two wheels.

Cycling If you’re a mountain biker, there’s a vast network of enduro trails criss-crossing the islands of Sao Miguel and Santa Maria. Our resident guides will lead you around a seemingly endless variety of trails: dusty singletrack routes that flow through forests of Japanese cedar, vertigo-inducing trails hugging steep-sided river valleys, and full-on downhill tracks and gap jumps for anyone who likes to fly a bike. The small island of Faial is the new rising star of the Azorean enduro scene,  and our guides will show the best of the island’s off-piste routes.

We’re bikers ourselves and we’ll help match you with the best routes and the right bikes – call us for a chat and we can help you to create the perfect cycling holiday to the Azores.
