Portugal is a small country, but very diverse. You can find many evidences of the many peoples that were here in the past and also the influence of our Discovery Journeys (15th and 16th centuries) that showed the world new worlds. Everything is mingled in our culture, our architecture, our landscape, our gastronomy, etc. In Portugal everything is near. You start riding in the morning and you admire the landscape; you ride some km and you can admire a completely different scenery!
On this 13-day bicycle trip in Portugal you will ride along beautiful and quiet roads, you will visit many typical small towns and villages of Portugal, you will experience the atmosphere of kings and queens, you will have a close contact with our History and you will admire the vast landscapes inland and along our long coast. There would be other wonderful places to visit in Portugal, but it would not be as pleasant on a bicycle. We designed this bicycle tour in Portugal selecting interesting places and roads, avoiding crowds and traffic. Cycling in Portugal is safe.
This tour finishes in Cascais, which was a minor fishing village until the Portuguese King shows it as his Royal Summer Retreat (19th century). Today, Cascais is an elegant fusion of decorative 19th century architecture, tradicional Portuguese charm and outstanding tourist facilities.
