Alentejo Bike Tour


Introduction

Our Alentejo bike tour has you cycling past castles under dazzling blue skies, rolling through fields of wildflowers, olive and cork trees. This delightful bike tour celebrates the Alentejo wine region, an area of Portugal that many consider to be the last vestige of old Iberia. Medieval walled villages, white-washed and trimmed in blue, dot the hilltops while plains of wheat and oats spread out below, freckled with small flocks of sheep and goats.

The Alentejo was the scene of some of Portugal's bloodiest battles with Romans, Moors and later Spaniards. Now it's slowly building a reputation for its phenomenal wines and exquisite gastronomy. We'll experience the majestic tranquility of Alentejo towns and villages; from the graceful town of Evora with its Roman & Moorish heritage to delightful Castelo de Vide with its picturesque medieval Jewish quarter and tiny synagogue - the oldest in Portugal.

You'll be left with unforgettable memories of this lovely region - its serenity and heart-stopping beauty and, of course, days of idyllic cycling. Our last night finds us in old Lisbon where we'll celebrate and say "goodbye" with a farewell, Fado dinner.
