More Info

Any trail running adventure to Portugal will either begin in Lisbon or Porto. While you’re in one of these two cosmopolitan hubs, be sure to check out some of the city’s architecture and cultural heritage. Heading out on a warm up run for the adventure ahead is a great way to do so.

Due to its beautiful volcanoes and beaches, the island of Madeira is one of the top spots in Portugal for trail running. Make sure you have at least one week to go out and explore this lovely place.

In spite of its distance from the European mainland, Madeira is pretty easily reached via flights into Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport (FNC) from most major European airports.

Other parts of Portugal are just of worthy of your trail running presence, but might require a bus ride, domestic flight or train ride in order to reach. The harder it is to get to however, generally the better the trail running is.
