Tour description

This amazing trip combines ancient history landmarks (such as Praça do Comércio, Cathedral of Lisbon, the monument of the
Sanctuary of Christ the King), and pure natural surroundings - as rich in flora and fauna reserves, lagoones and pine forests.

Of course, the beaches deserve special attention as they are  highlights of this tour. Every day you can swim in the ocean and admire the wide horizons. 

Also you will be charmed with the atmosphere of fishing willages and during whole toure have very healthy, usefull and delicious food of the seashore quisine, together with unrepeatable craft Portuguese wine.


OPTIONAL: extra nights available on request. 

The route  mostly presents a flat terrain with an average of 1-2 climbs per day. 

The stages are easily crossed with the support of provided  detailed roadbooks and a GPS. If any member of the group or family does not want to cycle one or more stages, they have the possibility to use the vehicle that performs daily the luggage transfers. 


Let's  cycle along the Atlantic and Vicentina Coast this year. It is the finest preserved stretch of European Coastline, famous for its mild Mediterranean weather,  secluded beaches, unique cliff views,  and ocean based gastronomy. No doubt, the best direction to ride the Vicentina Coast is one from North to South ( to take advantage of the wind blowing by the Atlantic Coast).
