Picturesque and historical Algarve

Highlights:
Algarve’s picturesque and lively historical centers
Portugal cycling tour through incredible and wild scenery on the coast of the Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina NP
Backwaters and salt mines of Ria Formosa
Visit to an organic farm and to local pastry factory
Tasty picnics served at the beach or at local restaurants
Very nice hotels, including a night in a convent

This medium level cycling tour begins where our Along the Coast tour finishes. You can complement your cycling holiday by doing the two bike tours together. You can also do a walking tour to get to the starting point.

We start cycling in a wild rugged area of the Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina NP, on the west coast. Then, we cycle along the popular south coast, the true Algarve, including very picturesque spots closer to the Spanish border!

Our days have lots of variety with visits to places such as the Fisherman’s museum, the cape of Sagres and several fortresses. The Portuguese Sea Discoveries of the 15th century are always present.

Besides cycling and enjoying the amazing scenery, we invite you also to learn about the local economy. One of the learning highlights is a visit to an organic farm where its fruit is transformed in jams, chutneys, cakes, and chocolates. The salines visit is another one and, to a sweet end, a visit to a pastry factory where you will have the chance to learn to bake some cakes and in the end taste them (cooking on van guided and guided tours only)!

The beaches are beautiful, on the first days with fun waves and impressive steep cliffs on the background while the last days offer us quiet and crystal blue waters.  You will find out that even in the more touristy Algarve areas there are still hidden away empty beaches.

Though the Algarve is apparently flat, there are several short ups and downs along the day, so you should be fit enough to handle the hills.

On the 6th day, there is a transfer by train or van to avoid the more busy area of the Algarve.

The hotels are all top quality and have a swimming pool, (except for the first one), though we hope you don’t have much time to spend there! Enjoy your stay at the monumental Pousadas of Portugal and relax at the recovered village, time forgotten, transformed into one of a kind hamlet/hotel tourism project.

The Algarve usually is a bit warmer than the rest of the country in autumn and spring, so you may end up having a swim in late October or early April! You can do the Algarve bike tours all year round!
