About this trip

The Alentejo is one of the best regions to cycle in Portugal!

BIKE & WINE TOUR WITH CASTLES, LISBON AND SURROUNDINGS is a  CYCLING TOUR that will live up to its name!

You will lodge either in an old convent or in a farming village transformed into beautiful charming hotels.

Along the way, the great ancient city of Évora, world heritage site, and small fortified hamlets will tell the stories of wars against the moors and Spain. The Spanish border is not far away, just across Alqueva, the biggest artificial lake in Europe.

The loveable Alentejo people, at first shy, the typical  Mediterranean gastronomy along with the wonders of cork, marble, olive oil and other crafts will enrich your experience. And the wine… come and judge for yourself!

Top Have a taste of the Algarve. A vehicke for your group only with your guide will take you from the Alentejo until the Algarves, making a couple stops along the way. You will lodge in the breathtaking town of Sagres.

Top it all with the beauty of  Lisbon and its surroundings as you marvel at  UNESCO heritage sites.
