Cycling

Self guided cycling holidays in completely safe biking routes is a refreshing different way to explore Portugal. Hop on a bike and appreciate peacefully one of the most untouched landscapes of Europe from a completely new angle.

Absolutely Portugal recommends energising cycling journeys through beautiful scenic routes, from gentle tours in the beautiful Alentejo countryside of olive groves, vineyards and picturesque villages maybe combined with wine tasting and gourmet meals (just perfect for those who want to combine a love of wine and dining with cycling) to unique adventures in Trás-os-Montes riding through spectacular rural roads, riverside cycle paths and remote villages and up to the Montesinho mountains, or cycling through the dramatic coastline of the Southwest Natural Park, dotted with pretty fishing villages, beautiful lighthouses, towering cliffs, vast sandy beaches and dunes rolling down the Atlantic coast, as well as pine and eucalyptus woods.

To relax after a hard day's cycling Absolutely Portugal suggests getting under the skin of the distinct treasures of authentic local cuisine and meeting the locals for an insight into traditional lifestyles.
