Cycle through Portugal on this gay group trip and discover Europe’s most up and coming destination. If you enjoy cycling and you enjoy wine then this is the trip for you.
Our adventure will begin in Alfama, Lisbon’s most elegant district. We’ll explore the Moorish and Jewish influences in the architecture and watch a Fado performance in the evening.
Today we’ll be cycling along the Blue Coast. We’ll visit the José Maria Fonseca winery taste Moscatel – which this region is famous for. After lunch, we’ll take a Zodiac along the Arrabida coast where we may well see dolphins.
Today we’ll cycle in the Natural Park of Arrábida and take a ferry to Troia Peninsula. Riding along the Alentejo province we’ll pass old school farms and tiny coffee shops in the middle of nowhere. Our arrival will surely give the locals something to talk about.
Today we’ll cycle through Roman ruins in Mirobriga the ancient town of Vila Nova – this town once hosted Hannibal (leader of the Carthaginians, not the Netflix show!).
After a brisk cycle through the fields, we’ll explore the town of Vila Nova de Milfontes – including its scenic coastline.
Today we’ll cycle along Rio Seixe to Zumbujeira do Mar. Keep an eye peeled for crumbling Moorish forts along the way. We’ll have a leisurely evening at our guesthouse and raise a glass or two.
Today we’ll sail along the Algarve coast. Avoiding the horror of Magaluf we shall stop in the funky town of Lagos and eat in a top restaurant.
