Holiday Information

This new self-guided cycling holiday in Portugal takes you down to the south west corner of the country, along the Costa Vicentina – a narrow band of land stretching along the west coast of Portugal south of Lisbon all the way to the Algarve. The landscape is a unique contrast of peaceful rolling country side and rough oceans, and typical quiet southern white villages and wild green landscapes.
The tour takes you mainly along narrow countryside roads connecting Alentejo towns and villages along your route, and leading to beautiful beaches tucked in at the bottom of wild cliffs. The varied route combined with comfortable accommodation (mainly 4* with pools) and adventurous local cuisine, will enable you to discover this wild corner of Portugal and the Algarve in a new way, far-flung from the images of mass tourism so often connected with the area.
Available for departures on Sundays all year round (with the exception of July, August,  Christmas and New Year), this is the perfect chance to escape and explore the far South-West corner of Europe – next stop America!
