    Portugal trip help needed

    3 of us going on March 15 for 7 nights, looking for and hoping we can get some help with gpx tracks of the area? We have had some help of a very good friend on here but looking for other options too.

    We plan to do as much trail riding as possible, we are riding big KTM's

    The rough route consists of

    Day 1 Portsmouth to Santander and first night staying in a place called Aguilar de Campoo .

    Day 2 Aguilar de Campoo to Braganca. Open to suggestions

    Day 3 Bran to torre de moncorvo Trail riding we have covered

    Day 4 trail 2 torrede to Manteigas Trail riding we have covered

    Day 5 Manteigas to Aveiro Open to suggestions

    Day 6 and 7 have not been decided yet but we need to be back in Santander by 5 pm on the last day

    As you can see we have day 3 and 4 covered just looking for help or suggestions for the others?

    many thanks guys

    Hi Jasext,

    I'm going to Portugal in early August and planning on riding the Touratech ACT route,i believe this starts at Braganca before meeting family and returning via the N2 could be worth a look, if you Google the Portugal ACT you can down load a GPX file, if you ave any problems i can send you it.

    Are you going to share your gpx tracks, in case somebody else wants to do the same? If so, hosting them on Dropbox (or something similar) is easy and works well.

    The tracks can be downloaded from here: https://www.adventurecountrytracks.c.../act-portugal/
    You need to register to access the tracks but there is no cost involved.
    There is an on screen advise to always download the latest version of the track just in case its been modified :-)

    if you have not sorted your accommodation out for Braganca there is a hotel ibis with secure under ground parking for 2 euros a night.

    When i stayed it seem popular with ktm riders
