Algarve - based in two hotels

Dream beaches and countryside

Sunny, sunnier Algarve! Probably the sunniest region in Europe welcomes you warmly! Two wonderful hotels are the base for your active trip in Portugal. Cycle along the beautiful coast, always keeping your eyes on the wide-open sea and next inn.

Quaint fishing villages, fun-loving people, culinary delicacies and a well-deserved portion of relaxation are just as much a part of the tour in the Algarve as the comfortable hotels that will serve you as accommodation and an oasis of wellbeing during these eight days.

Details about the cycle tour in the Algarve

The Ria Formosa Natural Park, Faro, Olhao, Alvor and Albufeira are just a few of the well-known coastal resorts that play a minor role in this tour. Every single town has its own history, special highlights and very own flair. Get to know these places and choose your own personal favourite!

Highlights of the tour in the Algarve at a glance:

  • The old town of Faro: What is remarkable about the friendly small town in the south of Portugal is the fact that the historic city wall almost completely surrounds the entire old town!
  • Sun-kissed citrus fruits: Where else could an orange or even a lemon taste better?
  • Ria Formosa Natural Park: This natural park is one of seven natural wonders of Portugal. Why? The unique lagoon system with its small islands is subject to constant change thanks to the tides. Don’t miss it!

Itinerary

Your first bike trip takes you through the unique lagoon landscape of the Ria Formosa, which was formed in 1755 by an earth- and seaquake. You will arrive in the small trading town Tavira, which was already established in the Phoenician time, with its surrounding salt flats and salt meadows. Later, you cycle back to the hotel.

Along the coast, the path leads to Faro where you have time for the beautiful historic old town by the sea. Flourishing citrus, orange, almond and fig trees accompany you on your bike ride to Estoi. After a coffee break in the magnificent Palacio (today luxury hotel), you cycle back to Olhão.

Past salt meadows with flamingos and extensive golf facilities the stage follows the course of the coast to the beautiful beaches of Quarteira and Vilamura. By train, you will arrive in Poço Barreto and cycle the last kilometres to your hotel.

You leave the coast and, accompanied by the scent of orange and lemon groves, you reach the Moorish Silves. In the early afternoon, you arrive back in your hotel and have time for a swim.

The "Ecovia do Litoral" takes you through former fishing villages and seaside resorts that alternate with dune landscapes and bizarre rock cliffs. Albufeira’s white old town invites you to stroll. Later, it goes back to the hotel.

In the morning, you cycle to the nice fishing village of Ferragudo. Behind Portimão, the “sardine capital“, you arrive at the spectacular rock beach Praia da Rocha. From Alvor, you cycle back to the hotel.

The Algarve-bicycle-tour ends after breakfast.

Tour character

Field ways, secondary roads and new cycle paths (mostly unpaved) will lead you on the cycle route called "Ecovia do Litoral". The terrain is mostly flat but sometimes also slightly hilly at the coastal landscape and in the hinterland. At day 5 one longer increase of approx. 100m in height. Please note that the official cycle path is only partly finished and the communities maintain it very differently.

Schöne Landschaft und gutes Essen
Die Radtouren waren durchweg landschaftlich reizvoll und führten zu lohnenden Ausflugszielen. Die Streckenführung war meistens gut wenn auch manchmal ziemlich gefährlich, z.B. die Kreisverkehre zwischen Olhao und Faro. Man sollte bei der Einweisung darauf hinweisen, dass es sinnvoll ist, den Arm links auszustrecken wenn man den Kreisverkehr NICHT an der ersten Ausfahrt wieder verlassen möchte. Wer nicht ganz so fit ist sollte wegen der Steigungen und dem eventuell heißen Wetter unbedingt darüber nachdenken, ein E-Bike zu wählen.

Es war dank der sehr guten Pedelecs und der guten Unterkünfte eine rundum sehr interessante und abwechslungsreiche Radtour
Olhao als Ausgangspunkt war sehr gut. So hat uns die erste Etappe in die Lagunenlandschaft der Ria Formosa am besten gefallen. Das Hotel Real Marina war top. Auch die Betreuung vor Ort durch Jacob von Weinradl war perfekt. Okay, für den Massentourismus an einigen Orten kann man nichts, darum sind wir mit den Rädern auch eher geflüchtet. Auf dem Land und in beschaulichen Örtchen war es dann auch viel schöner.

Eine schöne und interessante Radreise, die den Erwartungen entsprach
Die schönste Tour war wohl die durch die beeindruckende Landschaft der Ria Formosa nach Tavira. Sehr gut gefallen haben uns die kleinen Städte Estoi, Tavira und Silves. Erwartungsgemäß gab es nur wenige spezielle Radwege, wie wir es aus Deutschland, Holland oder Italien kennen. Aber vielleicht machte gerade das den besonderen Reiz der Tour aus. Die Organisation und die bereit gestellten Leihräder durch Weinradel Reisen waren sehr gut.

Danke, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, uns diese Bewertung zu senden, Herr Schöne! Es freut mich sehr, dass Sie mit der Reise rundherum zufrieden waren. Ja, in der Tat.... In den südlichen Ländern gibt es kaum Radwege, die mit unseren vergleichbar wären. Wir versuchen aber stets verkehrsarme Nebenstraßen und Wirtschaftswege zu wählen, damit es eine gelungene, stressfreie Radtour wird. Wir hoffen Sie finden sich auch nächstes Jahr eine Tour bei uns!
