About this holiday

Discover the real beauty of the Algarve, as we cycle through its glorious countryside and along its stunning coastlines. We will cycle along some of the region’s best routes, on peaceful cycle tracks and quiet roads, with the terrain being generally flat or gently undulating, manageable for anybody who cycles in the UK.

Our 4 cycle routes will give you the chance to enjoy the region’s wonderful scenery, its interesting flora and fauna, and its abundance of wildlife, as we pass through its beautiful nature reserves. There’ll be plenty of time to stop to  admire the view, or enjoy a sneaky ice cream, and a support vehicle will be on hand throughout, should any problems arise with either the bikes or their riders. In the evenings we’ll enjoy tasty dinners at local restaurants; a social and relaxing end to each day, and the opportunity to sit back and the enjoy the stories from the previous day’s adventure.

Vila Real de San Antonio: 28km

Our week begins with an easygoing coastal cycling day. we will cycle along the coast to Vila Real de San Antonio, a beautiful old port on the banks of the Guadiana River, which forms the border between Spain and Portugal.

Sâo Bras de Alportel: 27km

Today we take a transfer from the hotel to the village of Sâo Bras de Alportel from where we take a beautiful backcountry route through the countryside. We will pass through stunning landscapes and numerous carob and orange groves as we cycle back to the hotel.

Olhao!: 29km

Our third ride takes us back to the coast and we can we enjoy another gentle day cycling along the mostly flat route to Olhao, the largest fishing port on the Algarve. This charming town is characterised by narrow, winding streets and ancient Moorish flatroofed architecture which gives it an exotic feel. Our route also passes through the fishing village of Fuseta – a great spot on the coast for a coffee and a stretch of the legs.

The Ludo Trail: 24km

Today we head west, as we cycle from Faro through lush green countryside and wooded trails before we finally reach the glitzy marina at Vilamoura – a great finishing point for a week and time for a celebratory drink.
