Cycling through Portugal kissed by the sun


The flowery island of Madeira that it situated in the Atlantic Ocean is famous for being a hiker's paradise but it also a paradise for cycling enthusiasts! Marvel at the colourful flora and fauna on different altitudes and cast your eyes over the vastness of the surrounding Atlantic Ocean.

If you prefer cycling on the mainland but do not want to miss out on the sea, the Algarve with over 3000 hours of sun per year is the perfect destination for you. There are stages along the lovely coastal cycling path 'Escovia Litoral' and in the heartland many more atmospheric highlights await.

Central Portugal

It’s not only the coast of Portugal that’s worth a visit. The countryside, cities and hilly landscape are also enchanting. Explore central Portugal or cycle through the mountains of Portugal to the Atlantic. On the cycle tour from Porto to Lisbon, you will visit Portugal's two most famous cities. Look forward to authentic villages, friendly people and traditional delicacies in sunny Portugal.

The Climate in Portugal

The best time to travel to Portugal is undoubtedly the spring and autumn, because cycling is the most fun at a temperature average of 22 degrees. It can get hotter in summer of course, but the wind that blows from the Atlantic often provides a refreshing cool down. The further you go inland, the warmer the temperature will feel. Fortunately, the climate in Portugal is rather dry and pleasant.

A look into the Portuguese kitchen

Most of the varied cuisine in Portugal consists of fish and seafood. The undisputed Portuguese national dish is Bacalhau – salted and dried swordfish. Arroz de mariscos is also very popular – a rice pan with seafood, similar to paella. Grilling is one of the post popular food preparation methods in Portugal. For dessert, there is a wonderfully sweet rice pudding or the famous Pastel de Nata. Bom apetite!
