The Sintra National Park is a beautiful and tranquil area with approximately 145sq.km to explore either on bike or trail running. The park has excellent maintained trails of various skill level to exercise on. The park leads all the way down to the Atlantic coastline and beaches which are equally enjoyable and challenging to run along.
The Guincho-Cascais coastline is raw, fresh and with stunning beauty to enjoy running and cycling. The roads are in excellent quality due to the warm climate and are low in traffic volumes. There is plenty of choice in terms of scenery and difficulty to choose from.
