Description

Take a north-south guided cycling holiday through some of the wildest and most beautiful countryside along the border between Portugal and Spain, exploring the ancient towns and landscapes of three different regions.

This is a fairly tough trip that will take in an incredible range of scenery as you join a small group (maximum 10 riders) bicycling south from the wild landscapes of the eastern Beiras, into the Spanish province of Extremadura and back into Portugal to cross the hills and plains of the Alentejo.

Starting from Guarda at the northern tip of the Serra da Estrela mountains, we ride through a rugged land of isolated villages, small towns, sweeping panoramas and some of the most dramatic castles in Portugal.

We will cross the border a few times and after an overnight stop in Extremadura, we cross the hills of the Serra de S√£o Mamede before coming down into the more rolling landscape of the Alentejo, ending our tour on the southern plains in the historic town of Beja.
