Holiday Information

This guided holiday explores the west coast of Portugal and has been designed to keep you away from the hustle and bustle of major cities; instead the route takes us along secondary roads, narrow country lanes and cycle paths. Your guides will lead you along the route, so you can just sit back in the saddle, relax and enjoy the views! 
The route follows Portugal's stunning western coastline, all the way from north to south. The route visits numerous beaches, fishing villages and historic towns, with beautiful pine tree forests almost always present on the left handside of the road. But best of all are the magnificent, blue ocean views from above the cliffs, where the majority of your cycling takes place.
Alongside beautiful Porto, highlights of the trip include the traditional fishing villages of Furadouro, Praia da Vieira and Nazaré, the historical, castle wall-enclosed village of Obidos, the bustling beach resort of Santa Cruz with its lovely beach, the lush landscapes of Sintra Natural Park and the world heritage town of Sintra.
Accommodation during the holiday has been picked based on quality and location, to ensure you're comfortable after a day in the saddle. When we reach our accommodation for the evening, our bags and rooms will be waiting for us leaving you only one thing to think about: what to eat for your evening meal!
With dates spread throughout the year and various flight options into Porto and home from Lisbon, this guided holiday is one not to miss! We also offer a self-guided version of this holiday, if you'd prefer to travel on alternative dates.
