Escape the cold winter gloom with a mountain biking holiday – it’s a great way to develop your skills in the sun.

Home to some of the most varied and challenging trails available, Portugal and Madeira provide riders with a temperate winter climate, ideal for long days on the bike.

Our partners have built a dedicated network of downhill and enduro, feature-rich trails, which are perfect for developing skills and having tons of fun. We can also ride at the Portuguese National DH Track, as well as other well-known DH and enduro trails in the area.

Book into one of our winter training camps and you can:

  • Learn new skills
  • Ride new trails
  • Challenge yourself
  • Prepare for a race season
  • Maximise riding time with a possible 15 uplifts per day
  • Meet new riding friends
  • Replenish your vitamin D levels
  • Avoid the festive mayhem.

Group on MTB winter holiday

We can tailor holidays to suit all levels of rider and family groups. All you have to do is book your flights and we arrange everything you will need, including:

  • Airport transfer service
  • Modern fully-fitted apartments
  • Bike workshop with tools
  • Secure storage
  • Bike wash facilities (usually unnecessary!)
  • Stock of spare parts
  • Uplifts in air-conditioned vehicles
  • MTB-specific trailers.

We provide breakfast in the morning and lunch while you are out riding, while you are responsible for your evening meal. You can either cook at home or visit one of the many top restaurants in the area. If you would prefer to organise all your own food, just let us know and we can adjust accordingly.

Winter training courses are available throughout December, January and February. Please book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Winter is peak time for mountain biking abroad, particularly with the professional riders making the most of off-season training.

If you’d like to book on one of our winter training camps, or have any questions, feel free to contact us for details.
