Road Bike | Self-Guided | Landscape
This bicycle tour takes us to the protected landscape of Sintra and Cascais, located 25km (16mi) away from Lisbon – the Natural Park of Sintra-Cascais.
The overall difficulty level of this tour is 4, Advanced (level 4.0 between 1~5, precisely). It is recommended for enthusiast cyclists. It is supposed that you are fit and in good shape.
We leave Cascais and start to climb to Sintra Hills. Now the landscape gets different and we cycle through vegetation tunnels.
It seems that we are in a rain forest and we cycle almost to the top of these magnificent and majestic hills, and then we ride down along an endless winding road to get to small villages, Penedo and Colares, always surrounded with luxuriant vegetation.
Here we stop for a while to rest and to enjoy the impressive surroundings. On the bike again we ride towards the sea and get to Azenhas do Mar, a small village built above the sea, and Praia das Maçãs.
Our way continues along the beautiful coast of this National Park and we get to the westernmost point in Continental Europe – Cape Roca.
We cycle back to Cascais enjoying stunning views along the way, and passing by Cape Raso and enjoying the beautiful sceneries with the sea at our side all the time.
