    Hi Guys
    I am heading over to Portugal in 2 weeks time and looking to do the Portuguese ACT Route. Can anyone offer advice on how difficult this is please. I have limited off-road experience, is it suitable for adventure bikes
    Thanks

    Sorry, i'm new to this world of adventure bikes. So, no off road experience :)
    But Portugal is a beautiful place to ride.
    Two roads that are most advised are the N222 and the N2, the latter is called the Portuguese route66 (small as the country).
    A forum you can find something about trips in Portugal is: http://motosedestinos.forumeiros.com/f36-viagens-em-portugal
    Maybe with the translator you can have some ideas

    Most browsers have automatic translators.
    Congratulations on the trip.
    When traveling in November you should be aware that the probability of rain increases.
    Although I ride 365 days a year, sometimes in heavy rain, for pleasure I like less riding in rain

    Going by their info it's a "beginners" route.
    Harder alternatives are given but also marked.
    Just check out their pages

    Yes, it's for ADVbikes, no rockhoppers needed.

    My wife and I are visiting Portugal for a “big” birthday celebration for her next year. Beginner level on adventure bikes (ktm 790) and would HUGELY appreciate any feedback from people who have done this route. Thanks!

    If you use chrome there is an automatic translate, it's at the top of the page, if you can't find it check settings>translate.
    Enjoy the ride and stay safe!
