Cross country buggy tours, Buggy karts, kart cross and quad bikes are becoming an ever more trendy way to experience fresh air tours while riding on paths, through streams and on sandy roads otherwise hard to reach unless on foot.
Portugal has various companies providing these experiences to tourists, team building groups or celebrations. Both buggy tours and quad bike tours are a fun activity accessible to anybody with a driver license or without a drivers license as a passenger accompanying the driver.
The Buggy karts used for cross country karting are not necessarily build to speed with and in many situations due to safety and local laws they may not be used for speeding. To race or speed in karts you will have to visit a kartingdrome, the out door karts are more suitable for a more relaxing cross country experience.
Quad bikes are slightly more difficult to drive than buggy karts but can provide a more exciting experience as they resemble more closely motor bikes than cars. Other people will enjoy the buggies more as you will be seated closer to the ground.
In Portugal the best buggy experiences can be found in Cascais, Algarve and parts of Alentejo.
Quad bikes currently only in Cascais and Sintra natural park.
Even though all ages with drivers license can drive them and conduct the tours, they will be slightly more trying than a normal car tour, partly due to the choice of roads and paths and partly due to the nature of this sport.
