Created in 1999 as a unique adventure connecting the two furthest points of the country in a 24 hours non-stop stage, ‘Portugal de Lés-a-Lés’ has evolved and adapted to the times without losing the identity that makes it one of the most important motorcycle tourism events in Europe. Nowadays the biggest motorcycle touring caravan in the world uses 4 days, with the first one for technical and document check and an opening ride (Passeio de Abertura). Then, three stages with an intense flavor guarantee unique memories to all who participate and with the possibility to score points for the FIM World Touring Challenge.
In 2022 it will take place from the 9th to the 12th of June, connecting Faro to Bragança, stopping in Castelo de Vide and Covilhã, along more than 1000 kilometers of discovery, without ever touching highways, freeways or other forms of road modernity. Always on national, regional, municipal roads and even some dirt roads, the 2000 participants are challenged to discover a different and truly unique Portugal.
A timeless adventure in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe, with such different landscapes, amazing for everybody who really loves moto touring.
