Algarve Self Guided Bike Tour
6 Days Sunshine from €750 p/p
Self Guided Algarve bike tour from Tavira to Lagos, following little traveled inland country roads, passing fragrant orange groves and fields of fig, almond and carob as we cycle back to the sparkling beaches the Algarve famous for.
Cycling in the Algarve
Our Algarve bike tour explores the almost forgotten and untouched interior of this region that is known mostly for its excellent beaches and many golf courses. This part of Southern Portugal gets around 300 days of sunshine a year and offers some of the finest cycling conditions in Europe.
You will ride through country lanes dotted with olive, fig, almond, carob and orange groves rooted in stunning red earth, passing countless villages and the occasional Moorish Castle along the way.
Although the focus of this cycling route is the rural interior, you will not stray too far from the sparkling coastline though, and you will be able to dip in the warm waters of the Algarve.
This warm, sunny bike tour offers on top of great rides, the unbeatable Portuguese hospitality, superb food (particularly fresh grilled fish!) beautiful beaches and great accommodation.
