Jewels of Portugal with PortugalBike
  Judith -- Nov 23, 2012 01:19 pm
Our first trip to Portugal was a tour of the "Jewels of Portugal" with PortugalBike in September, 2012. We wanted to learn about the country and its history, and experience traveling around the country on a bicycle. We cannot say enough good things about PortugalBike. Our guides, Jose and Pedro were fantastic! They taught us about Portugal's long history, as well as giving us lessons on the language, industries, and culture. We especially enjoyed learning about the cork trees, touring historical ... more

Summary

This is a special tour for Avid Cyclists.

This tour is longer than the others, not only with more days but also with more kilometers per day and some more climbs. However, it is not a difficult tour and everyone can do it: you can see the altitude gain per day and the climbing profiles. The criterion for the classification of the Difficulty Level was also different, based on a more demanding criterion.

This programme includes 2 shorter days; it was intentionally designed that way to give you some time off the bicycle to visit Obidos - the most preserved medieval village in Portugal, and Evora - a town classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.

This tour allow you to know some Jewels of Portugal that you can do by bike.

Portugal is a small country but very diverse. You can find many evidences of the many peoples that were here in the past and also the influence of our Discovery Journeys (15th and 16th centuries) that showed the world new worlds. Everything is mingled in our culture, our architecture, our landscape, our gastronomy, etc. In Portugal everything is near. You start riding in the morning and you admire the landscape; you ride some km and you can admire a completely different scenery!

On this 10-day programme you will ride along beautiful and quiet roads, you will visit many typical small towns and villages of Portugal, you will experience the atmosphere of kings and queens, you will have a close contact with our History and you will admire the vast landscapes inland and along our long coast. There would be other wonderful places to visit in Portugal, but it would not be as pleasant on a bike. We designed this tour selecting interesting places and roads avoiding crowds and traffic.

On this tour history and landscape are intertwined in an amazing way! This is the perfect programme for you, without stress!
