PHOTOS OF THE SUMMER CAMP

 

Have you planned your late August? Do you love biking or are you mustering your courage to set with us on this adventure? Don’t worry, we’ve done this program 3 times already, and no one was left behind. It’s a fun, unforgettable unique experience. To bike down such a beautiful region is a great challenge, the type you’ll remember forever and relive proudly. Let’s pedal away on this adventure.

In 2016 Pranima is renewing it’s four years old project, a biking Camp. Taking advantage of the recent development of the “Ecovias de Portugal” (cyclotourism trails), starting from Lisbon we will rekindle this project, that has sparked so many compliments in previous years due to it’s innovation, differentiation and team spirit of having a Biking Camp in Portugal. This year we will pedal from Odeceixe to Aljezur, enjoying the breathtaking scenery of the Portuguese Vicentine Coast. We will have 8 days of cycling, physical activity, emotions and discovery, all in complete safety. This Camp will provide – through it’s logistics alone – a great spirit of camaraderie, fun, fantastical landscapes and will certainly become a talking point for many years as an amazing life experience. All pathways tested are already prepared to be occupied by the participants, demanding the same average level bike.

The coastal strip begins in Odeceixe , where the preserved nature has a strong, wild character, which translates into landscapes of stunning grandeur.
The beaches follow one another, sometimes with long losing sight of sand or smaller framed by grandiose cliffs of shale and limestone. The sea, agitated, produces a natural symphony, which serves as a soundtrack to this tour by the sea.

Pranima invites you to venture forth in this amazing trail in a unique program that will show you the south filled with breathtaking landscapes, amazing flavours and guaranteed adventure.
