The Beautiful North of Portugal Guided
Hybrid Bike | Guided | Historic
This tour is the result of the combination of two of our tours: “The Historic Towns in the North” and “The Charming Pousadas in the North”, but longer and with more km/day. This tour takes place in the North of Portugal, a very hilly region with very green environment, but it is not a difficult tour: this gorgeous bicycle tour mainly runs on bike paths, bike lanes and some dirt roads along rivers and the Atlantic Ocean. Of course we also have to cross some hills.
The overall difficulty level of this tour is 3, Intermediate (more precisely, level 3.2 between 1~5). It is recommended for enthusiast bikers and cyclists.
Minho is one of the most beautiful regions of Portugal. It is very green and there are many beautiful historic evidences. You can feel the History just looking at the historic buildings that are spread along the way, the historic main squares in each small town, in the local commerce, in the medieval structure of each town that we will cross on a bicycle!
This fantastic bicycle tour must be done with a hybrid bicycle, because we will ride on several bike paths that allow us to discover the green environment that is along the river banks, to enjoy the coolness of the paths during the summer days, to admire the landscape and to experience the History. By the way, Portugal is an independent country since the 12th century and everything started in the north.
We will cycle along the Lima river admiring an astonishing view and luxuriant vegetation. We will cross the hills in Gerês and will stay in a 12th century Monastery converted into a charming hotel.
On our last day we will cycle to Guimarães which is traditionally known as the birthplace of the Portuguese nation. You can visit the medieval historic center, the castle and the palace nearby and feel the medieval atmosphere around you.
