Reviewed by: Daniel Jesus , from Guia, Albufeira, Portugal

Summary:
This was my first long mtb tour, but considering information about similar ones from people who did them, there's hardly an organizer as thorough and effective as Malvar and his team from Ciclonatur. 1200 km doing Portugal xc North to South in 18 days is no piece of cake - but thanks to them, you really have the chance to enjoy pure mountain biking in the most remote parts of our beautiful country, worrying about virtually nothing else... And you even get to choose your pace - level 1, if you're in more of a touristic mood, or level 2, if you like it fast and with a hint of the competition feeling. And every evening everyone meets for delicious typical dinners and exchanges stories and jokes about each group's day - until everyone's too tired to stay up.
In a nutshell: your condition must be good, and still it hurts a bit - but in the end there will be so many good memories of the thrilling and gorgeous tracks, jolly companions, great organization and constant fun, that all the rest will be forgotten and nostalgia will make you want to come back next year.

Summary:
Every year Antonio and Friends organise a group to do the full trail, 1200 km in 18 days, arranging all the logistics, assurance and guiding.
This year I joined them and had a superb holiday, 18 days of serious mountainbiking in beautiful scenery!
All in all a unique possibility to explore Portugal and meet the friendly, grazy, humorous Portuguese. Dont hesitate; ask Antonio about next years Travessia!
