      The Ria Formosa is a designated natural park and a stopping place for Flamingos and Storks. We ride from Quinta do Lago along the sandy trails through the lagoons and salt flats to Faro Island. Although not officially an island as it is joined to the mainland by a narrow road bridge that leads to a vast area of gloriously deserted beach with cafes and the chance of seeing dolphins. Sunset, Sunrise and lunch tours can all be adapted! There is a drink stop on the Island.

      Fab activity to do in the Algarve!
      We had so much fun riding through the hills on and off road to the wine tour. I bought this for my boyfriends birthday and we both had the best time. Russ was super accommodating and throughout the trip he explained where we were going, some of the history of some of the places and had good stories from previous trips. He was very mindful of making sure we were comfortable on the bikes and went at our pace. Russ took us on and off road, all through the hills and to a waterfall which was beautiful - we covered a lot of ground! Cannot recommend this more as a fun experience to do with a partner or a bunch of friends. Wanna do it all over again!

      A must do in the Algarve!
      We absolutely LOVED our tour with Dirt E Bikers! I was hesitant at first since I hadn’t ridden an electric bike before, but our guide Russel made me feel very at ease by checking in on me throughout our trip. The bikes actually felt very safe and stable and by the end I was riding through the gorgeous landscapes and taking in the STUNNING views without a care in the world. Going through the quiet orange and olive groves was my favourite part. This is for sure one of the best ways to explore all the Algarve has to offer. Will definitely come back on our next Algarve trip!

      Breathtaking sights and smells on a comfortable e-bike with a fabulous guide. Safe and fun!
      We went for a fabulous ride with Russell up in the hills of the Algarve. The bikes are amazing and the sights even better. Gliding along amongst the olive groves and orange trees is truly magical and I highly recommend it to any and all. This is a MUST DO! Don’t miss your chance to get amongst it on a Dirt-E-Bike and do some exploring. 🏍️

      Amazing tour with Dirt e-bikes! A must if your in the Algarve!
      If you love to be outside and want to really experience the Algarve area, this tour is a must! We spent three phenomenal hours with Bradley as he showed us the area, including the sports campus, salt flats, flamingos, nature preserve and then headed to Faro Island. The ebikes are safe, easy to handle and allows you to navigate and enjoy both the on and off-roads. One could not see and experience so much by foot or car. Bradley the owner is very attentive to your wishes and knows the area well, thus resulting in a awesome time. Thank you for one of the best days of our trip. PS. We hope to see you in Albufeira and in the Duro Valley vineyards next time.

      Cool way to experience Faro!
      This is the first time I've ridden an e-Motorbike, and it was amazing! Russ was a great guide and made me feel at ease with the bike from the start. I went as fast/ slow as I wanted, and he stayed with me, ensuring I was OK! Outside of feeling 100% safe, this was a fantastic way to see parts of Faro I would have never seen. We went through little villages, orange groves, off-road (you can opt not to do this), and saw the beautiful countryside. If you're up for something different, definitely take this tour with Russ!

      Don’t miss out these bikes are amazing !
      What an amazing day, collected bikes early morning. Quick demo and a ride around their track to get used to the bike then away we went. Had the bike for the whole day and they were such good fun and easy to ride, would fully recommend to anyone visiting and I will certainly be back. Thank you for a great day out and superb customer service.

      Country Roads Tour
      These bikes were super fun and we both loved riding the dirt roads through the farmlands and hillsides in the Algarve region! Russ was an awesome guide who took the time to make sure we were comfortable on the bikes and took us on roads we were capable of. We visited some cool local spots, and a beautiful Goji Berry farm. Riding these bikes was easy, fun and FAST!

      Must do bike activity!
      Our tour guides Russ and Steve were absolutely amazing, very safety conscious and made the tour so wonderful. The bikes were incredible and the entire family had a fun time. Along the tour we stopped at a cafe for coffee and delicious pastries. Would definitely say this is a must do and has been the highlight of our vacation to date! We could not have asked for a better activity and would do it again next time we are in the Algarve.

      Fantastic day out!
      This was such a great day out - definitely the highlight of our week! We took our teenagers aged 17 and 16 and they also absolutely loved it. The scenery was just beautiful and visiting the local town of Alte was such a contrast to the rest of our holiday. We would love to try one of the other tours next time. Thanks guys!

      Lovely experience. Everyone involved incredibly friendly. Goji berry farm very interesting. We had booked Faro island trip but weren’t able to do this which was a pity. Hopefully next time!

      DirtEBike Day Trippin’ to Faro Island.
      If this is the only activity you do when on Holiday you will NOT be disappointed! We hired two bikes and travelled to Faro Island (with a couple of drinks stops), we had lunch on the beach and sunbathed before heading back to drop the bikes off making a day of it. We didn’t use a tour guide which gave us the freedom to go wherever we wanted making it a real adventure. Well worth the money, owners extremely helpful explaining how to use the bike and giving us tips / advice on where to go. From someone who has never ridden an E-Bike before don’t be afraid to give them a try, you absolutely won’t regret it!

    What a fantastic experience we had on an e-bike tour with Russ. Russ was an amazing guide and put us both at ease with the bikes. Loved our stop at the shack on Faro Island for a massive toastie! Also the pink flamingos! Thoroughly recommend this experience and we`ll be back on our next trip to the Algarve...one of the best experiences we`ve had on holiday

    Well worth it, never been on a motorbike before being of more senior years (65) it was very easy to use after a couple of practice laps. Great way to see the Formenosa Lagoons and wildlife. Would recommend it to everyone.
    Good way to start an off road experience.

    'This is the most fun I've had on two wheels!'
    Every time we are back in the Algarve we always include a tour with the Dirtebikers!
    Russ and Brad are incredibly welcoming and provide such a great service from first jumping on the bikes to off roading and racing the airplanes from Faro island!
    Everyone should add this to their list when visiting the Algarve!
    We look forward to seeing you all in October!

    This was a return visit to Dirtebikers for us having completed the ride to Alte the previous year and enjoyed it so much.
    Russ and Brad are superb hosts providing an excellent, friendly service.
    The bikes are super safe and handle all terrains very safely…you can’t help but ride them with a smile on your face!
    Would recommend Dirtebikers without hesitation as a great activity to try!
