We designed this Portugal bike vacations for people searching for a good mix of nature and heritage, and a sprinkle of excellent cuisine on top!
The tour explores the Natural Park of Serra d’Aire e Candeeiros and the beautiful region of Évora, a city classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Site. Then we follow to the gorgeous natural park of SW Alentejano e Costa Vicentina, for a dramatic change of landscape.
Due to the tough profile of the climbs in Serra d’Aires e Candeeiros we have decided to do this tour in e-bikes. Be aware that if you chose a normal bike you shall expect a really tough time.
Your evenings will be spent with Chefs or local people. In our cooking classes you will learn delicious and simple Portuguese food. At each place you will be given a little book with the recipe of what you cooked so that you may repeat the experience at home.
We may adapt the week to your wishes:
OPTION 1 – Having extra nights at all or some of the hotels to guarantee some resting time
OPTION 2 – Removing one of the areas for a shorter trip in case you have less time.
OPTION 3 – Swapping some of the cooking classes for served dinners if you don’t want to do all the 3
