Algarve Bike Tour


Introduction

Our Algarve bike tour explores the almost forgotten and untouched interior. This part of Southern Portugal gets around 300 days of sunshine a year and offers some of the finest cycling conditions in Europe. 

You will ride through country lanes dotted with olive, fig, almond and orange groves rooted in stunning red earth, passing countless villages and the occasional Moorish Castle along the way. 

We will not stray too far from the sparkling coastline though, and you will be able to dip in the warm waters of the Algarve, as well as see a unique show of the Portuguese water dog in action!

In many ways the landscape and the people of the Algarve feel much closer to North Africa than Europe. This warm, sunny bike tour offers on top of great rides, the unbeatable Portuguese hospitality, superb food (particularly fresh grilled fish!) beautiful beaches and unique accommodation including converted monasteries and boutique hotels.

Highlights

  • Explore the interior of the ancient Algarve, stronghold of the Lusitanian Moors.
  • Take a scenic coastal train over the gleaming salt pans and marshes of the Portuguese south.
  • Travel along tiny country lanes to old whitewashed villages, along orchards of fragrant orange trees.
  • Feast on the freshest catch of the day grilled to perfection and washed down with some of Portugal’s world class wines.
  • Enjoy some of the Algarve's finest accommodation, far from the madding beach crowds.
  • Visit a working cork factory and workshop to find out all about this fascinating natural product.
