Rota Vicentina Bike Tour


Introduction

Our Rota Vicentina bike tour explores the beautiful and rugged Atlantic west coast of Portugal, cycling through white washed villages and cork forests along the way.

We first ran our popular Blue Coast bike tour back in 1986, when the Rota Vicentina did not even exist. Now, as all those years ago, this classic tour has you coasting along quiet back roads from Lisbon to Lagos and the brilliant beaches of the Algarve. 

You'll experience a memorable montage on this sea side bike tour of Portugal: magnificent coastal seascapes, pastoral farmlands, working windmills, tiny fishing villages and historical monuments such as Henry the Navigator's Navigational School perched on a wild headland over the blue waters of the Algarve.

Highlights

  • Cycle the headlands of the wild Atlantic shores.
  • Explore the footsteps of the world’s most famous explorers, such as Vasco da Gama and Magellan.
  • Travel through the charming, sleepy villages of Portugal’s Costa Vincentina, still largely undiscovered as if time had stood still.
  • Feast on the freshest catch of the day grilled to perfection and washed down with one of Portugal’s incomparable wines.
  • Visit the ruins of Henry the Navigtor's School for Mariners on the wind-swept headland of Europe’s furthermost south-western corner.

Will and I did the Portugal - Lisbon to Algarve ride and it was a delight. We'd be glad to talk to anyone who wanted more info and I'll answer any question or just heartily recommend the trip! Will is an avid bicyclist and I am a more casual biker and this trip was great for us both.
