Trip Information

This Azure Ocean Ride self-guided cycling tour in Portugal explores the west coast of the country and has been designed to keep you away from the hustle and bustle of major cities. Instead the route takes you along secondary roads, narrow country lanes and cycle paths. You will be provided with a GPS device, along with some helpful route notes and background maps, so navigating the day's rides couldn't be easier! 
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 and beautiful pine tree forests are almost always present on the left handside of the road. But most relevant of all are the magnificent, blue ocean views from above the cliffs, where the majority of your cycling takes place.
Starting in the city of Porto, amongst the highlights of the trip are the traditional fishing villages of Furadouro, Praia da Vieira and Nazaré, the historical, castle wall-enclosed village of Obidos, the peninsula of Peniche with its spectacular ocean views, the lush landscapes of Sintra Natural Park and the world heritage town of Sintra.
Accommodation during the vacation has been picked based on quality and location, to ensure you're comfortable after a day in the saddle. When you reach your accommodation for the evening, your bags and rooms will be waiting for you leaving you only one thing to worry about; what to eat for your evening meal!
With start dates flexible and various flight options to Porto, there’s never been a better time to take a cycling vacation in the ever beautiful Portugal.
