Description

Ride across the rolling landscape of the northern Alentejo on a 10-day guided bicycling tour, visiting some of the region’s oldest towns and finest castles.

My wife and I will be leading small groups (maximum of 10 people) to explore some of the quietest and most fascinating countryside anywhere in Portugal.

Starting in the ancient city of Évora with its UNESCO World Heritage architecture, we’ll guide you on a circuit that runs along the border with Spain and up into one of the quietest corners of Portugal before looping back south again.

Along the way, we’ll ride along the banks of the Guadiana river, explore sleepy villages, stop in historic towns and visit castles ranging from hilltop eyries once controlled by the Knights Templar to some of the largest and best-preserved 17th century fortifications in Europe.
