ATV/Quad Off-Road Adventures
What Planet Ride offers for ATV and Quad adventures
Planet Ride features an array of ATV adventure trips, with difficulty ranging from easy to advanced, depending on the location. You can pick up some speed through rolling fields or along the sand of a gorgeous seashore, test your skill on rugged, technical mountain trails, or enjoy anything in between. Whether you’re looking for a closer connection to nature, or are a full-throttle adrenaline junkie, we’ll have a ATV Tours that meets your needs! A few examples of our trips are offered below.
One trip with the most varied terrain is our eight-day ATV Tours in Portugal which takes you from beaches to mountains and back. Starting in the city of Mira, you’ll head north along dunes and seashore before reaching the pine forest trails which lead to Aveiro. After a short break to relax and take in the views, you’ll make your way along rugged stone paths through the countryside and forest to reach Agueda. Day three brings a new level of difficulty with steeper climbs and rockier paths as you travel to the town of Caramulo, which is set in the mountains. From Caramulo to Oliveira do Hospital, you’ll be surrounded by verdant, rolling landscapes to enjoy. You’ll also pass several schist villages, which are tiny hamlets constructed from granite stone, with some houses cut directly into the rock. The rocky, technical trails continue, but eventually switch to gentler forest tracks, letting you pick up the pace! Stops include Lousa and Luso, two more cities rich with history, culture, and good food for you to experience. Eventually, you’ll return to Mira and head home.
For a warmer, sandier trip filled with gorgeous oceanside views and vibrant culture, check out the five-day ATV adventure in Senegal. After arriving in Saly, the group travels north for Toubab Dialao, which is a village with unique architecture – it’s built entirely of seashells and stones! Along the way, you can experience the strange sensation of a floating bath in the highly salinated waters of the saltworks near the Pink Lake. This lake is named for its brightly hued waters, whicha re the result of a combination of the salt and algae present. The next day offers wind, sand, and speed as you cruise down the beaches to the lagoon of Somone. From there it’s on to Mbodiene and then Ndangane. Here, you will embark on a traditional dugout canoe for the island of Mar Lodj, where you’ll get to spend the night. The next day, after exploring the island and its specialties, you’ll head back to the mainland and then experience the vast plains as you travel to Palmarin, set amidst massive baobab trees. This one-of-a-kind forest has actually been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO! On your last day of this ATV tours, you’ll return to Saly by way of Waran and its beach, where you’ll stop and relax for a beautiful seaside lunch.
