Program

If you think you already experienced a top-drawer experience, you are most probably wrong. Unless you already booked a tour with Freeride Spirit, you never experienced the excitement of riding in the most striking sceneries, through on and (optional) off-road trails, with the best and most suitable motorcycles and equipment for your chosen itinerary, enjoying fantastic top-notch hotels, assistance, gastronomy, and wines, as well as a great variety of unforgettable unique experiences along the way.

An amazing tailored route created by ex-riders meticulously thought to involve travellers with the splendorous sights and cultural richness of Portugal that combines the best of travelling with the best of motorcycling adventures. This tour is also 100% customizable to ensure you and your esteemed company get the perfect tour for your taste, skills and wallet!

It is not that often that you are given the chance to chill out in luxury accommodations after a long day riding and exploring. Moreover, Freeride Spirit takes care of every tiny detail, ensuring you have the finest remote 24h support and guiding assistance which allows you to do things in your own way and time, maintaining total privacy.

Nevertheless, the very best of this tour is that you will have the opportunity to truly explore and appreciate up-close the best of both Porto and Douro. The hillsides and wineries where Port and some of the world’s greatest wines have been produced for the last 2000 years, and the imponent city at Douro River's mouth where the wines are stored for aging in the world-famous Port Wine cellars. Considered top Romantic European destinations they are both parts of what we think is the most beautiful wine region in the world.

One of the oldest cities in Europe, but at the same time buzzing with trendy new and up to the minute cool places, Porto will certainly pleasantly surprise you for the hospitality of its people, and you will fall deeply in love with the worldwide famous riverbank views, the exciting cultural and nightlife scene, and of course, the marvelous gastronomy, always accompanied with outstanding wines. Porto is a World Heritage city, that serves as the gateway and departure point for an unforgettable journey across the natural and cultural diversity of Porto and Douro Valley region.

The Douro Valley, also known amongst tourists as the enchanted valley, was the first place in the world to become a certified wine region and was also classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, in 2001. Douro is not only a place with an unmatched natural beauty where the River carefully carved its way, preparing the terroir for its locals to craft its beautifully designed terraced vineyard slopes and century-old schist houses and paths. It is also a region filled with historic value that oozes an almost mystical feeling of grandeur.

The scenic trails and views, the secret places where some of the world’s most famous wines are made, the secret roads to ride, the typical picturesque villages and small towns, usually off the charts, where time seems to have stood still. All of this will make this tour one of the best experiences of your lifetime.
