Hybrid Bike | Guided | Landscape
 x

This is the easiest bicycle tour that we offer. This hybrid bike tour starts in Porto and ends in Aveiro. You will have the chance to admire the beautiful river front of the second biggest city of Portugal.

Port wine makes the city of Porto well-known all over the world and you will have the opportunity of learning a bit of the history of this famous wine. Douro river starts in north of Spain, but it is here, in Porto, that it meets the sea, and this beautiful and long river was used for many and many years to transpor the wine from inland to the cellars in Porto area to make the famous Port wine.

You will cycle along bike paths along the coast and visit many beaches of the north of Portugal, always along the Silver Coast. The route is very easy, scenic and relaxing.

You will visit a beautiful place with some very interesting houses which are the result of the transformation of old warehouses used to keep the fishing gear. Today these small houses with their colorful striped façade are the vacation place of many families and it makes a very unique place in Portugal to be visited.

The tour ends in Aveiro, a city on the west coast of Portugal known for its Art Nouveau buildings and its enchanting lagoon. This 45-kilometer-long lagoon stands as one of Europe’s last remaining untouched coastal marshland. It is also a haven for numerous bird species. The locals call this rich lagoon Ria de Aveiro. Tourism and aquaculture are the mainstay of the Aveiro Lagoon region.

It is also renowned for its artisan fishing and as a center for the collection of Flor de Sal, an expensive salt variety. The boats that in the past used to collect the submerged aquatic vegetation (Moliço) to be used in agriculture, today are transformed into bright colored painted boats that cross the lagoon full of tourists.
