Vinho Verde Bike Tour


Introduction

Our Minho Vinho Verde bike tour explores the verdant valleys and vineyards of northern Portugal's Minho Green Wine region and the spectacular coast of Galician Spain. It is in fact our first and oldest trip!

You will start cycling in northern Portugal at Bom Jesus with its lovely sanctuary and wend your way north up into Spain's Galicia - famous for its Gaelic resemblance to Ireland and its fabulous seafood. Breathtaking coastal cycling will bring you to the seaside town of Baiona where you'll spend a night at the romantic Parador de Baiona situated in a medieval fortress overlooking the sea.

The next day brings you back to Portugal where ox carts still ply the ancient country lanes. Beautiful landscapes, medieval villages, hillsides terraced with vineyards and valleys laced with lazy rivers await us at every bend. Grand hotels, Paradors and gracious manor houses highlight the tour and make it one of our classics.
