Adventure Tracks

Experience the Algarve’s biodiversity and culture first-hand!

Before we set out from our base, we begin with a full guidance and safety tuition to ensure that everyone is entirely comfortable with their quad and ready for adventure! Once everyone is confident and familiar with their vehicle, we will set off.

Starting from our base at Moinho do Leitão, we will drive through quiet country lanes and dirt tracks. As we wind through the local villages, you will feel as though you’ve gone back in time with a nostalgic glimpse at how life used to be.

Our first stop will be the 12th century Paderne castle built by the Berbers, where you’ll have plenty of opportunity to take some wonderful photographs, and learn about the history of the area, courtesy of your knowledgeable tour guide.

Continuing on we will experience some non-paved road riding through the local orchards including Orange groves, Carobs, and a host of other fruits and vegetables.

Hopping back on the quads we will then twist and turn through the countryside on a diversity of back roads of the Algarve. You will be taken off-the beaten track and over rocky laneways as we make our approach to a thrilling river crossing through the Quarteira River (the river might be dry in the summer months) before heading back up the mountain to Paderne.

Whilst there are a couple of stops, there is tonnes of quad biking in between! Some people welcome the break and love to marvel in the remarkable scenery. However, if you have no interest and wish to immerse yourselves in a non-stop, adrenaline fuelled adventure instead, then we will gladly oblige you! Depending on your ability levels, we can take a pace of your choosing.

NOTE: Tour route may change due to weather conditions, group preferences and riding abilities.

Tour info: 35km – 40km riding, approx. 1.5 – 2 hours

Our Adventure Tracks quad biking tour is perfect for first timers, and those travelling with children under 12 or elderly family members. It allows you to immerse yourselves in the quad biking experience, without putting too much strain on fleeting attention spans or aging bones.

If, however, this tour doesn’t sound quite long enough, then we invite you to check out our Alte & Beyond tour, for an extended adventure.

In any case, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that our 35km -40km route is well-optimized and offers plenty of beautiful scenery and amazing photo opportunities! Whilst most customers are always hungry for more, you certainly won’t feel as though this tour wasn’t enough to satisfy your thirst for adventure!

Tour Times – Winter (November – March)

During the winter it gets dark relatively early, so we no longer run tours which finish at 6pm. At this time or year, we start tours at 10am. If you would like to book during these months, please let us know a few possible dates suit you and we will provide you with our schedule.

As the weather can be a little unpredictable, we recommend you book your tour at the beginning of your holiday just in case the weather conditions get too rough and we need to reschedule.

  • Full valid driving car licence is required (drivers only). You must have this with you on tour and please note we do not accept provisional licences.
  • We provide helmets, plenty of water (bring your own refillable bottle), and always have a first-aid kit on hand. This means you don’t need to bring much!
  • We do recommend that you wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and suitable footwear.
  • Personal belongings can be taken on tour as we do have a safety box on one of the quads, but we ask you only take the bare essentials (wallet/purse & sun cream). Space is limited inside the box so if possible, please just bring a small bag and keep things to a minimum.
  • We do not take responsibility for any lost belongings, so we strongly advise that any valuables are left at home or in your hotel to be on the safe side.
  • We recommend closed-in / covered toes shoes or sneakers. Flip flops or sandals are OK to wear provided you are careful – please leave the high heels at home on this occasion!
  • We recommend that you wear sunglasses.
  • It can also get incredibly dusty at times, so don’t wear your best clothes.
  • We advise that you apply your sun cream before you arrive to give it a chance to absorb.
  • We don’t recommend wearing dresses or skirts as it can be uncomfortable while riding on the quad, and remember you can get burned easily by the sun and wind, so we recommend to cover up a bit.
