Portugal is a fantastic place for an active holiday and is one of the most stunning holiday locations for a cycling holiday in Europe.
There are a variety of landscapes to discover from the dramatic coastlines of Madeira, the cities of Porto and Lisbon, and the resorts along the Algarve. There is an undiscovered side of Portugal away from the busy resorts that can be discovered by bike.
Madeira is located in the Atlantic Ocean and is known as a great place for a hiking holiday, our carefully planned itineraries take you along panoramic roads that cover pretty much the whole island. Marvel at the flora and fauna at different altitudes and spend time in Madeira's capital of Funchal which will allow you to get to understand the history and culture of the fascinating island.
If you prefer cycling on the mainland but do not want to miss out on the sea, the Algarve with over 3000 hours of sun is the perfect destination for you. There are stages along the lovely coastal cycling path 'Ecovia Litoral' and in the heartland, many more atmospheric highlights await.
It’s not only the coast of Portugal that’s worth a visit. The interior countryside, cities and hilly landscape are also enchanting. Explore central Portugal or cycle between the two most famous cities in Portugal, Lisbon and Porto. Authentic villages, friendly people and traditional delicacies in sunny Portugal are waiting to be experienced.
Cycling holidays are an excellent way to see new places and ride between cities and there is no added pressure on getting to the hotel in the fastest time possible.
