You will pass small villages and ride along old roads and rural paths, crossing a vast area of orange trees. The smell is wonderful! You will pass close to “Pego do Inferno” where you can admire the most beautiful waterfall in the Algarve.

Day 4: Marco to Alte " (52km, +1000m)
This is a more challenging day in the rolling hills close to the Algarve Mountains, but well worth the effort for the tremendous scenery. Cross a hilly region passing small villages and riding close to streams on valleys with a luxuriant Mediterranean forest!

Another day cycling inland with great views all along the way! We ride along ancient and narrow roads where the landscape mainly shows us carob trees and fig trees. Then we get into a large valley of cork-oak trees. The best of this day is a lovely ride on a road close to the Arade Dam, and then gently cruising down the valley to your destination for the day in the lovely historic town of Silves. It is well worth planning to get here in good time as there is plenty of opportunity for exploration of the castle and the Moorish town.
