Frequently asked questions about motorcycle tours in Portugal

If you want to know more about our motorbike tours to Portugal, in our FAQs you will find answers to frequently asked questions. If you still have a particular request, we are happy to hear from you. You can contact us here.

Portugal is the most south-westerly point of Europe and fascinates with its endless coastal passages on the Atlantic as well as with wonderful mountain routes on the border to Spain.

The motorcyclist's heart beats faster at the highest point in Portugal. At 1993 metres, the Torre mointain, in Serra da Estrela, is a biker's paradise. In this nature park you will find Portugal's most beautiful mountain roads, we spend 2 days in the Serra da Estrela on both the Traditions and Pleasure Tour and the Castles and History Tour.

EU citizens can enter the country with a valid identity card or passport. The driving licence of the respective European country of origin is sufficient to drive a motorbike. Non-EU citizens should clarify the entry requirements for Portugal with their responsible embassy; an international driving licence is strongly recommended.

To participate in the tour, you should have at least 2 years riding experience and be familiar with the chosen motorbike class and size. Safe operation and a firm footing are indispensable on tour. When choosing your motorbike, you should therefore ensure that you have a comfortable riding position and that you can always reach the ground with your feet.

Essentially, the Portuguese traffic rules do not differ from the rules that apply throughout Europe. Nevertheless, we recommend a rather cautious, anticipatory driving style, as the roads can range from leisurely to fast, depending on the locality. Unfortunately, indicators are rarely used to change lanes, and drivers often simply park in the second row. The maximum speed limit is 50 km/h in towns and 90 or 100 km/h outside towns (according to the signs). On motorways, on the other hand, the speed limit is 100 km/h and on highways a maximum of 120 km/h.

Portugal has a well-developed road network and we ride almost exclusively on asphalt roads. Your tour guide is very familiar with the local road conditions and will advise you on the special conditions of each day's tour and region. Despite good road conditions, there may of course be dirt or damage (potholes) on the roads due to weather conditions or other (motor) vehicles. We therefore recommend that you drive very carefully and always keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front.     

Portugal has a rather temperate maritime climate and we can look forward for warm to hot summer months. In the south, the winters are very mild, but towards the north it becomes increasingly cooler and wetter, for example in the region around Porto.

Depending on the stage destination, we can expect riding days of between 4 - 6 hours. Distances of about 250 and 300 km per day are covered. We usually start at 9:00 in the morning and - including breaks for photos, lunch and sightseeing - we reach the hotel at the destination around 17:00 and 18:00pm.

Provided that your motorbike is well-kept and running smoothly, you are more than welcome to ride your own motorbike on the tour. Please make sure that you have appropriate tyres. You must also carry the appropriate documents and insurance for your motorbike and organise the transport to the starting point of the tour by yourself.

It is important to have appropriate motorbike gear such as motorbike trousers and jacket with protectors, sturdy motorbike boots, leather gloves and a motorbike helmet with full visor. 

If you wish to travel with less luggage on your flight, you can also rent high-quality motorbike gear from us. You can use our booking system to see what equipment and sizes we have available and book directly online. 

The best way to describe Portuguese cuisine is simple and hearty. The basic ingredients are meat, fish and cabbage. If you want to eat typical Portuguese food, you should not miss the national dishes such as stockfish (bacalhau), sardines and the "Caldo Verde" - a potato and cabbage soup with chorrizo. 

The meat-free cuisine is also impressive, and the menus in the restaurants always include vegetarian dishes or the national dishes are sometimes offered without meat. You can also choose from a wide range of fruits and vegetables everywhere in the country, even in the smaller villages. 

In general, Portugal is considered a safe country to travel and we have had only positive experiences on our tours so far. Since 2003 we have been running thematically different tours in different regions of Portugal and our participants have always felt very welcome.
