Vouga railway line by Bike
In this region, from the time of the victory of the Visigoths in the sixth century, there are excellent natural conditions for walks that combine the history of the beginnings of Portugal with unforgettable landscapes, where nature breathes strength and beauty.
Nómadas Adventure Tours makes a unique trip that becomes an experience to always remember, from the first moment you start pedaling, going through the old railway lines of Vouga and Dão.
Deactivated places that smell of stories and mysteries of the past. Here, nature crosses with magnificent engineering works and runs the risk of meeting the spirit still alive of the first king D. Afonso Henriques.
Hybrid electric bicycles make it possible to pedal along the paths in comfort and access all the unexplored corners that hide secrets and murmurs never discovered.

Our bikes are electric, which means they have an electric motor that helps in pedaling.
It is still a bicycle because it requires the rider to pedal to ride, but at the same time the electric assist allows for incredible performances and very high levels of enjoyment.
At the same time, it allows a person without great physical preparation to be able to make distances that at the outset would think impossible.
