Cycling in Portugal over the
"Ecopista do Dão"


The former railway "Linha do Dão", closed in 1988, connected Santa Comba Dão with the city of Viseu. In 2011 this railway was transformed into a spectacular bike and walking path, called the "Ecopista do Dão".

With 49 km, it is not only the longest Ecopista of Portugal, but probably the most beautiful.

Very easy to bike in a
mountainous area


A large part of this path, which passes in front of Quinta da Abelenda, runs along the banks of the river Dão. Every bend in the river is followed by a bend in the Ecopista, with another view of the river. Because of the fact that it used to be a railway line, it is easy to cycle. There are no steep slopes in this mountainous area and you will be cycling in a very beautiful landscape.

We have a special package for you if you want to bike the Ecopista in only one direction:
