Hi guys.
First of all sorry for writing in English but my Portuguese sucks!

I'm a British guy living in Carcavelos. I bought myslef a UMM, absolutley love it, despite the frequent problems with brakes/clutch/gearbox.

Can anyone suggest good places for offroading near Lisbon?

Also what's the law regarding driving on beaches etc?

Wicked forum!

Thanks,

Mitch

Hi
Wellcome
You need to show us some fotos of you UMM
Off roading in portugal is legal as long as ou stay on public roads, or privet ones as long as with permisson of the owner, there are many dirt roads in portugal some date back to the roman era !
As for the beaches i think it is illegal but i'm not sure.
IMHO, i'd stay off the sand, as it is a fragil eco-sistem and is bad for the mechanical parts of the car.

Have Fun and show us your UMM

Mith, welcome to this forum.
About nice places in Lisbon for offroading I can't help you because I'm not and not living there
but I can tell you something about driving on beaches because I was a fanatic of that 12 years
ago and after the new law came out I was forced to sold my UMM Cournil.
The fines are between 500€ and 5000€ depending the time (1st 2nd or 3rd) you're catched.
More simple : you can't drive less than 150 meters from the 1st sea protection dunes and only on
made existing tracks.
More informations can be obtained from each Division Area of the Forest Protection or at the
Navy Police HQs.
One thing I can assure you : a lot and super adventure spaces with a lot of adrenaline for offroading you'll find here in Portugal and a lot on people reading this message can help you identifying such places.

Regards
Pedro Reis



UMM grande abraço
