Tour Summary

You’ll be exploring 650 miles and ascending 50,000ft from North to South, without compromise. We’ll climb to the highest point of Continental Portugal, visit and taste the wine areas, marvel at historical cities and villages, soak in the beauty of the natural parks and visit the vibrant city of Porto – in a non-stop road cycling adventure that culminates on a beach in the Algarve, taking in the best this stunning country has to offer.


Immerse in the diversity of landscapes, gastronomies and wines, as well as the different types of terrain, from challenging climbs to rolling hills and flat river roads. Discover the amazing history, culture and traditions Portugal has to offer.

The Alentejo region is a picturesque and charming place, where you’ll fall in love with the whitewashed villages, medieval castles, sunbathed plains and the secular traditions and lifestyle.


Visit the undiscovered paradise of one of the most remote areas in Portugal, the Douro International Park, with its beautiful landscapes and vantage points over the river. A UNESCO world heritage site, with its trademark "socalcos" or terraced vineyards, distinctive fields of olives and oranges, river beaches and wildlife. 

The car-free roads of inland Portugal provide you the conditions, safety and great atmosphere for cycling tours. Its varied topography will challenge you and make you a better cyclist. Dine and sleep in local charming hotels, once wineries or medieval castles, but now fully equipped hotels with their very own spas and amazing amenities to make you feel comfortable.
