Our team

We love to ride a bike!

It is just amazing to ride a bike and discover new places, this is our main drive to organize fantastic active holidays here in Portugal.


My name is Maaris and I am the founder of MTBcamps. Estonian living in Portugal. My bike brought me here and I love to ride my bike and Portugal offers fantastic conditions for it.

I have been pedalling most of my life, and I have a long racing career as well, with many medals and awards, I am also an Olympic athlete, I competed in Athens in the road race. 

My biggest passion lies in mountain biking, although of course road cycling and gravel is also amazing ways to pass the kilometers.


My passion for mountain biking will always shine through my work, I like to encourage people to be more active and pass time in nature whether on bike or foot.

My main goal as tour guide is to help you to have good and safe time in nature and feel the connection with the local environment and cultural space. 


I am a qualified cycling coach and also certified cycling mechanic. And with my long history with the sport, I know how to pace and see how to structure a biking holiday for every level of fitness, so that is joyful and full of smiles. As a coach always my main goal is to have people smiling at the end of the tours, satisfied and happy to have chosen a bike ride.

I have small circle of good local guides, who all love riding bikes, and with bigger groups I cooperate with other international colleagues that I have made in my cycling career and know their love for riding and professionalism at providing a great service.

Portugal is worth a discovery either on a mountain or road/gravel bike, hope to see you here riding with us!

My mother tongue is Estonian, I speak fluent English and Portuguese, I also speak German, French and Russian.
