Mountain bike tour
Our mountain bike tour crosses Faial Island from east to west. We start riding at Horta and finish in the Capelinhos Volcano. In between, we will see the Caldeira of Faial. This ride is designed for amateur cyclists or sports enthusiasts who practice endurance sports consistently, at least once a week. The route covers 45 km, and 1320 m of elevation gain. We will use mostly dirt roads and secondary roads. The itinerary can change, for our guide will adapt the route depending on the weather conditions and group fitness. The guide will ride at the right pace so everyone feels comfortable by the end of the adventure. After the ride we may have some time to relax and swim, if weather conditions are right. Our mountain biking tour is a great way to cross Faial Island, see many different landscapes, and also learn quite a lot about the island. The tour includes bikes and transportation back to Horta. Feel free to contact us if you’re looking for a shorter or different, custom made route.
