Itinerary:

Day 1

The tour begins in the wonderful city of Porto.

The fun begins.

On the first part of the day, you will ride on the N108 and the N222, which will take you to Peso da Régua, the main town in the Douro Valley.

Afterwards, it is time to ride through the “heart” of the valley, passing by the Valeira dam and a few small roads hidden in the middle of the vineyards.

Take your time and enjoy the view.

But do not forget to keep an eye on the road, as it is narrow and full of bends.

The day ends in one of the “Quintas” of the “Upper Douro” , where you will enjoy a delicious dinner and taste the flavours of the region.

Day 2

The day begins with a short ride to the Pocinho Dam, where the route will take you into the Douro International Natural Park. Here you can feel all the “roughness” of the Douro River and “see” Spain just across the border.

Then it is time to head south towards the Serra da Estrela Natural Park.

In this Park you can find the highest mountain in Portugal, with the highest peak being Torre, with 2,000m high.

You will ride on the most beautiful and hidden roads of the Park, before arriving to Manteigas, where a mountain style hotel awaits you. Relax and enjoy.

Day 3

The 3rd day of the tour begins with a walk along the magnificent glacial valley of Zêzêre, before arriving at the highest point in Portugal: Torre.

Then you will head south to Piodão, one of the most picturesque villages in Portugal. Stop there and enjoy the calm… ..

After relaxing in the small village of Piodão, it is time to “work” again and ride some of the funniest roads in Portugal, before entering the Alentejo region.

To enter this region, you must cross the Tejo River (the largest in Portugal), before arriving at the fortified village of Marvão, where you will spend the night.

This small village "stands" on top of a small mountain and, at least since Roman times, has been used as a refuge or as a strategic military point.

Day 4

This day is almost entirely dedicated to the Alentejo region.

On this ride through the gentle hills and plains of this region, you will pass through the beautiful and historic towns of Estremoz and Évora.

Estremoz played an important role in the fight against the Moors, and today it is famous for its beautiful marble.

Évora has a history stretching back over five millennia.

Due to its well-preserved old town centre, still partially surrounded by medieval walls, and numerous monuments from different historical periods, including a Roman temple, Évora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the last part of the day, you will take a ferry boat, before arriving at your destination of the day: Lisbon.

Charge your batteries and enjoy the urban life of the Portuguese capital.

Day 5

This is the rest day of the tour.

It is time to enjoy Lisbon and wonder trough the capital of Portugal!

Eat a “Pastel de nata” and drink a “Bica” (the equivalent of an espresso coffee) and feel like a real “Alfacinha” (name of the inhabitants of Lisbon).

Alternatively, you can also go to Sintra, and visit this beautiful city, full of palaces and famous for its romantic atmosphere.

Day 6

On the 6th day of the tour, you will leave Lisbon and head north along the coast.

The 1st part of the day will take you to the Serra de Sintra Natural Park, and to the westernmost point of Europe: Cabo da Roca.

After that, it is "Surf time".

The village of Peniche is famous for its world-class waves, as well as its neighbour Ericeira, one of the only surf reserves in the world.

The day will end in the fishing village of Nazaré, where you can taste the delicacies of fresh Portuguese fish and seafood.

Day 7

The tour is almost coming to an end...

For the last day of this Tour, we have prepared a relaxing itinerary along the northern coast of Portugal, but first stop at Nazaré North beach, a “Meca” for big wave surfers.

After leaving Nazaré, you will find yourself along the coast passing several small villages, before arriving in Figueira da Foz, a town well known for its large sandy beach and casino.

The last part of the day will be a ride towards Aveiro (Portugal's “little Venice”), before arriving at your destination, the wonderful city of Porto.
