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.

Day 1:

On the 1st day you’ll explore Douro’s riverbanks, then taking a detour into the interior where you’ll find challenging but beautiful mountainous paths and typical remote villages, with picturesque houses, where time seems to stand still since a long time ago. Portuguese are known for excellent food and meat lovers will certainly enjoy the famous, delicious, and protected Arouquesa meat. If you opt for the off-road, you’ll be unveiling the astonishing mountain range of Serra da Freita, and visiting its schist and slate villages and terraced plantations. This area is also a Geopark habitat for several species of birds of prey. You’ll also visit granite villages and enter Medieval, Gothic worlds while discovering the 12th century (XII) patrimony. After riding some of the highest roads in Portugal you’ll later re-encounter Douro, for a remarkable Port wine tasting experience.

Day 2:

Starting the 2nd day at Peso da Régua - a city that owes its origin and fame to the relevant role it had in the development of the region and in the history of Port wine – you’ll be taking the road Régua – Pinhão, considered by experts as the best road in the world, in an index that combines the types of curves and the surrounding landscape. Arriving at Pinhão, you’ll be visiting vineyards of the noblest grape varieties in the world, enjoying unique bucolic sceneries, and exploring castles that belonged to Muslims a long time ago. Opting by the off-road alternative, you’ll discover traces of Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic civilizations, and appreciate figures dated from 22,000 to 10,000 years B.C. in the Foz Côa area. At the end of the day, you’ll have the chance to relax quietly in a hotel where serenity is the absolute keyword.
