Swimming trunks or cycling shorts?
Fortunately, you don’t have to choose! Just pack both! Because in the Algarve you’ll need them. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, the Algarve is one of the sunniest and friendliest areas in Europe. It is therefore not surprising that our cycle tours are always close to the beach, so that you can take a wonderfully refreshing swim on a white sandy beach every now and then. Cycle along the rough cliffs and lonely bays and keep your eyes on the beautiful sea. Let yourself be enchanted by the beguiling scent of blossoming orange trees and the sight of the almond blossom and fee the energy that this wonderful piece of the earth gives you. You can look forward to cycle tours straight from a picture book.
Experience an impressive variety of coastlines, stunning beaches, secluded bays and unforgettable sunsets on our cycling tour along the Algarve. In eight days you cycle from Sagres along country lanes, side roads and newly built cycle paths to Villa Real Santo Antonio.

The climate in the Algarve
Look out sun worshippers - you will have a new favourite destination! Is over 3000 hours of sunshine a year a good enough reason? As already mentioned, the Algarve is one of the sunniest regions in Europe. Too hot you think? Fortunately not! Because the wind that blows from the Atlantic makes the climate in the Algarve very pleasant. So you can book a holiday in the Algarve year round without any worries – the weather is definitely good!
Wer schon mal in Portugal oder an der Algarve Urlaub gemacht hat, kann sicher bestätigen, dass das Essen dort einfach nur köstlich ist. An erster Stelle steht, natürlich der Küstenlage geschuldet, Fisch. Deshalb finden Sie auch so gut wie auf jeder Speisekarte leckere Fischgerichte. Ein typisches Menü an der Algarve sieht wie folgt aus: als Vorspeise wird entweder Caldo Verde, eine Suppe aus Grünkohl, Kartoffeln, Knoblauch und Würstchen oder Gaspacho, eine kalte Tomatensuppe mit Knoblauch serviert. Als Hauptspeise muss es natürlich Fisch sein, egal welche Art. Aber auch Fleischgerichte wie Espada mista (Fleischspieße) oder Feijoda (Eintopf) werden gerne gegessen. Hört sich nicht nur lecker an, sondern ist es auch.
