Our Transfer Service

The cycle route Ecopista do Dão, follows the linear path of the former railway "Linha do Dão". For those who want to cycle the almost 50 km of the Ecopista without the uphill return, we prepared the package Descending the Ecopista.

If you like to do a shorter ride, or you don't have time to do the whole trip, then we can bring you to another place along the Ecopista, and cycle 20 or 30 km. See our page:
