Cycling in Portugal is a virtual treasure trove of finds. Bike Portugal's many quiet routes in the Alentejo region as well as the cosmopolitan vibe of Lisbon. Pamper yourself in the most special collection of hotels, both luxurious and historic and with daily cycle routes designed to treat you too.

Experience the great seafaring heritage of the Portuguese capital, Lisbon before you start cycling into the tranquillity of the countryside of the Alentejo. Still mainly rural, bike through marble quarries, cork forests, olive groves and perhaps hear a unique type of polyphonic singing, so if you care to warble a few notes while pushing the pedals, you’ll fit right in.

Cycle to the UNESCO city of culture, Évora and see its atmosphere of medieval European and Roman ruins, the lovely towns of Estremoz and Monsaraz and their hilltop fortresses and the blue and white painted villages that lie in between. Taste the succulent red wines of the area and local specialities of the region, the fresh produce and seafood and the array of sweets to tempt any palate.

Stay in wonderful atmospheric historical monuments, now luxury Pousada hotels and including one of the Alentejo´s best hotels, the Convent do Espinheiro. This is surely a cycle trip for those who enjoy relaxing travel on two wheels, in a varied landscape and rich fabric of past civilizations, wonderfully preserved for the visitor.
