The Amazing Algarve Coast Self-Guided
Hybrid Bike | Self-Guided | Landscape
This is a landscape bicycle tour in Portugal that takes place along the south coast of Portugal. You will start in Sagres, which is the place from where our brave forefathers sailed on their caravels seeking new peoples and continents. Cape S. Vicente is the start point, the south-westernmost point in Continental Europe – the place where the land ends and the sea begins. And you will always ride eastwards towards the Spanish border.
The overall difficulty level of this tour is 2, Moderate (more precisely, level 2.4 between 1~5). It is recommended for enthusiast bikers.
On this bike tour in Portugal you will visit some of the beaches of our famous Algarve including the cosmopolitan city of Lagos. This is one of the oldest towns in the Algarve. We can still see evidence of the wall surrounding the town for protection. Lagos also has an old fort and its former Slave Market is now an art gallery. You will ride along the world-famous Algarve coast where you can see some amazing Golf resorts and very beautiful beaches.
You will visit Albufeira and Vilamoura, very fancy touristic places, the old quarters in Faro (the city capital of the Algarve), the typical city of Tavira with Moorish influence with its countless buildings and monuments and the amazing Roman bridge over the Gilão river in the historic center. You will ride along the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, a lagoon system that extends itself over 60km of the coast and which is a passing area for the migrating fauna of Europe to North of Africa and it is also the “winter resort” for many birds from North and Central Europe.
This bike tour in Portugal ends in Tavira, a town that still manages to maintain its traditions.
You will notice the differences along the Algarve region: the center is very developed for tourism and the west and the east still maintained many evidences of the old Portuguese ways and traditions.
