Quad Tour 1

Algarve Quad Tour 1

A brilliant, exciting and wonderful 2-hour quad tour commencing from our base which is just a 7-minute drive from Albufeira Old Town. On arrival Rory provides you with a full guidance and safety tuition before you head out and ensures you are comfortable and relaxed.

"We had a fantastic 2hour tour with Rory. The views were fabulous. I was nervous to start but Rory put me at ease, I found it really easy, and my husband and myself absolutely loved every second of it. I highly recommend trying quad biking if you have never done it before, I'm addicted. Highlight of our holiday – Helen N."

During our 2-hour quad adventure we travel approximately 28KM. First we head north towards Tunes where you will travel through some amazing countryside trekking on and off road, up and down woodland paths and over rural terrain. This gives the perfect opportunity for you to reveal in the beautiful scenery. We may even pass a herd of goats which is always fun! On tour you will discover small unspoilt Portuguese houses and get a glimpse of how life used to be. The panoramic views and the tracks we take are fab and just made for quad biking. We will pass through orange and lemon groves, and see olive, fig, almond and carob trees.

"The views were lovely and it was nice to pass by locals waving at us as we went by! We took a few stops where Rory would tell us more about what we saw and we even got to eat almonds fresh off the tree! - Steffi and Eddy"

There is some stunning scenery so please ensure you have your camera at the ready! Rory stops throughout the tour and will take photos for you.

"This isn't a quad bike trip like in the UK where you go around a few fields in soggy mug. This was a mixture of on road and off road seeing the real Portugal and the friendly locals. Rory stopped for photo opportunities and was brilliant at helping take these so you had some great memories – Scott and Vicky"

After a short stop at a typical Portuguese café where we will treat you to a cool refreshing drink, our quads head back towards Albufeira. On the way, we pass through a small orange plantation and stop at an old quarry. Here you can smell and touch the wonderful eucalyptus tree – it has such an intensive aroma. Passing through more rural terrain, with its traditional houses and stunning views, our quad group continues its trek back to base.

"The whole tour is fantastic. Riding the bikes is a thrill on its own but the well-chosen route always gives you something to look at. We booked a two-hour tour but all of us would gladly have continued on for longer. – Paul from Rochester"

We want you to have an experience you will always remember and this quad adventure is one that should not be missed!

Please use the contact page to get in touch and we will email lots more information on both our tours. If we don't respond within a few hours please let us know! As we only travel in very small groups with a maximum of 6-8 people on tour we recommend you book a tour as early as you can. This offers a private experience and the reason so many people book with us!
