    Day 2

    Porto World Heritage and Douro river

    This is the shortest day of your bicycle tour, just because there are many small things and details to pay attention during the way. You leave the historical and charming place of Porto near Douro river and the bridge and you see the ocean where Douro river meets the sea. You continue pedaling along cycle lanes along the coast and you will reach the next hotel.

    Day 5

    Aveiro town, the Portuguese Venice

    On this last day you can choose to ride 14km or 31km. Always on a flat environment you can choose to finish on km 14 having the rest of the day to visit and to enjoy the beautiful town of Aveiro, or you can continue the ride into a preserved lagoon landscape and visit all that beautiful area near the water. It makes a kind of a loop to come back to the hotel again.
