Portugal – Algarve Sunny Coast Cycling Tour
The southern region of Portugal, called the Algarve, is a perfect place for a cycling tour getaway offering an incredible program along one of the most beautiful coastlines of Portugal. You will discover some small fishing villages and some abandoned fortresses which remind us of the time when this coast was ravaged by pirates! Passing by the Southwestern most point in Europe, Cape São Vincente and end in the beautiful and typical town of Lagos; you ride some of the best seascapes in Europe. With Alentejo, this region is 300 million years old and it is one of the most preserved landscapes in all of Europe; in the Algarve we avoid most of the high traffic areas and beaches further east and south. The tour area boasts a diversity of rare botanical species, with very interesting flora and a variety of maritime birds that nest here and complete this beautiful and unique scenery. After a few cycling days you will reach Cape Sao Vicente, which is the south-westernmost point in continental Europe and a migration area for thousands of birds.
