You can look forward to first class accommodation and dinners with locals and first class cuisine that couldn't be more authentic. It will not be the big luxury hotels, it is the small and fine accommodations that make them so big because they are so special.

Choose the comfortable way by flight for your journey and let us transport your motorcycle to your destination. We will pick you up at the airport and the motorcycles will be handed over at the accommodation. On this tour our escort vehicle will take care of transporting your luggage - enjoy a free ride, arrive relaxed and enjoy the experiences of the day.

Day 1

Arriving in Faro and a short time later in our accommodation, the holiday can begin. Here you will not only experience first class hospitality, here the term "happiness" is redefined. Arrive and relax, these are the terms that will accompany us every day from now on.

Day 2

Today's tour leads us through the Alentejo to Evora. The wide landscape is dominated by olive trees and cork oaks. Over winding side roads and along numerous cork oak forests and small reservoirs we reach Evora in the afternoon. The historic centre of the town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and we take the time to stroll through its many alleys. We spend the evening in the middle of it and the restaurant will be the perfect end of the day, look forward to something special.

Day 3

Smooth asphalt roads with endless curves lead us today into the Serra da Estrela, the highest mountain range in Portugal and in winter also a ski resort. The kilometres of curves wind their way endlessly through this area and most of the time we will be alone here. The tour can be shortened or extended depending on your mood. In the late afternoon we reach our accommodation, which is familiar and unique.

Day 4

After breakfast, the route continues on winding roads through the Serra da Estrela. Only a short time later we reach the summit of the Torre at 1993 m with its breathtaking views of the region. Along endless winding roads we reach our destination of the day in the late afternoon. The Douro valley in the north of Portugal is without doubt the most impressive wine growing area in Europe. It is the home of port wine and not only the view of this wonderful landscape will inspire you, the incomparable taste of a good port wine is also part of it, look forward to very special moments.

Day 5

Starting in the morning on the Spanish side of the Douro Valley, we experience the rugged gorges of the river until noon, with up to 500 meters of difference in altitude. Then we cross the border and experience the spectacular beauty of the Douro Valley on the Portuguese side. Along the Duero we reach our accommodation in the middle of the vineyards in the afternoon. Lovely landscapes like in Tuscany or the high mountains of the Maritime Alps - there is a bit of everything and therefore enough for a day full of riding fun.

Day 6

Today's route unites such different regions that it is difficult to describe it. It is harvest time and most of the traffic we will encounter are the farmers with their small transport vehicles full of grapes, who have to bring their harvest quickly for processing. We cross the lovely landscapes of the Douro valley to reach Porto at late noon. We have arrived in a city that never sleeps, it is the city of port wine and the countless port wine cellars invite us to taste their wines.

Day 7

Today we will have a day off from touring. The city of Porto is a popular tourist destination and the old town with its small, winding streets has a lot to offer. Impressive bridges span the Duero river and those who like can watch the colourful hustle and bustle on a boat trip. For those of us who prefer to ride a motorcycle, we offer a day trip along the unique green coast. Innumerable bays with their sandy beaches and small bars invite you to stay, and those who like can also enjoy a cooling in the sea. Back in Porto, the lively nightlife of this wonderful city awaits us.

Day 8

The tour begins with lovely routes and from midday the hinterland awaits us on very winding and steep mountain roads with up to 20% ascents and descents. In the late afternoon we reach the rough Atlantic coast and thus a "hot spot" of the country, in front of us lies the Mecca of surfers. Here the surfers are looking for the perfect wave every day, we don't need to look for it anymore, we have been surfing our "perfect wave" for days. We spend the evening in a small restaurant by the sea and a good meal with fresh fish and a Vino Verde round off the day perfectly.

Day 9

What awaits us today is one of the most beautiful routes Portugal has to offer. The coast has an incomparable beauty and guarantees an unforgettable motorcycle experience on winding panoramic roads along the Atlantic Ocean. In Lisbon we will cross the spectacular "Ponte de 25 Abril", a suspension bridge over the Tagus River, almost 3 km long and the third largest suspension bridge in the world. Europe's mainland ends at Cabo da Roca. Gently, wildly and romantically we experience this region in its own way. Being here feels similar to being at the North Cape. The view is fantastic, the personal photo counts and we are quickly gone again.

We continue along the Atlantic coast. Again and again we experience endless long beaches, enchanting bays, steep cliffs and long dunes.

Day 10

Today's tour has a lot to offer, from the Atlantic coast to the Serra de Monchique. Endless small side roads on best asphalt lead us to the highest elevation in this small mountain range. At a height of 902 m, with a good visibility, fascinating views up to the sea open up. The curved waltz will not end and in the afternoon we reach the Algarve. Once arrived here, a fantastic accommodation awaits us, surrounded by 11000 orange trees, the freshly squeezed orange juice is guaranteed for breakfast.

Day 11

It will be the last day of the tour and today we will take the countless winding roads through the hills of the Algarve. Smallest side roads with best asphalt will inspire you. If you like, you can also discover the sandy beaches of the Algarve on your own during a boat trip, just go swimming or relax at the pool of your accommodation.

Day 12

Today it is time to say goodbye to Portugal. No farewell forever because the next adventure is already waiting for us.

Our tour groups are deliberately kept small and limited to 8 motorcycles on this tour. The minimum number of participants on this tour is 4 persons.
