Full description

Do something unique, get off the beaten track, and trek over rocky laneways on this off-road quad biking adventure. Begin your tour with a safety briefing to ensure that you are entirely comfortable with your quad and ready for a great day out. Choose from a 1-person or 2-person ATV.

Start the tour on top of the windmill hill in Paderne and drive over quiet country lanes and dirt tracks until you arrive at the 12th-century Paderne Castle and learn about the history of the area from your knowledgeable tour guide.

Continue over non-paved roads and ride through the local orchards such as orange and lemon groves and down woodland paths surrounded by olive, fig, almond, and carob trees. Stop along the way for photo opportunities, a stretch, and refreshments (included).

Twist and turn through the countryside on a diversity of back roads of the Algarve before heading up the mountain again back to Paderne, taking in the remarkable scenery surrounding you.

Arrived and only started immediately after a 10-minute meeting. No lengthy talking, no lengthy explanations of any issues outside of the break in the middle, just quad biking around the area. The ride was divided into 2x 45min rides (no stops in between) with a break in the middle of about 20min with a drink break and information from the guide. The guide was very entertaining and gave us a lot of information about Portugal and this area. Insanely friendly and very entertaining. If someone wants to ride a quad, talk little, just explore the area and doesn't want to work through a run-of-the-mill tourist program, this is the place for you.

Fantastic experience, truly a beautiful trip. Not only do you get a scenic and unique look at the beautiful landscapes of Algarve, but also the guides are quite good at explaining a bit about the history and flora of the region. Would recommend to anyone going here, but be prepared for a temporary “dust tan” ;-)

The guides were very kind and the tour was awesome. You get to see a lot of the Portuguese nature and small, old villages. The quads were in a really good shape and we felt safe the whole time, thanks to the guides that explained everything and looked after us during the tour. We got beautiful pictures and were provided with water. We would totally recommend it!
