From East to West, EuroVelo 1 crosses the Algarve in its entirety, from the Spanish border to Sagres; following over 200 kilometres of coastline! EuroVelo 1 - Atlantic Coast Route in Portugal has something to suit everybody; from sheltered dunes to rocky coves; from tiny bays to vast stretches of open sandy beach; from shallow lagoons to the wild crashing surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year, the Algarve also offers the perfect climate to complement its spectacular shoreline.
Mythic crossing between two symbolic and magic cities. Start in the heart of Porto, a very lively city listed as World Heritage site by Unesco. Walk along the Atlantic Ocean, between endless golden beaches, fishing villages with colourful houses and forests of wild pine trees, and reach the capital city of Lisbon and its seven hills. You will enjoy delicious and authentic dishes served in small villages. This is a stay mixing tradition, nature and gastronomy.
Ride by the Portuguese Atlantic Coast, towards the south, from Porto to Lisbon. Discover the beautiful cities of Espinho, Aveiro, Figueira da Foz, and the convents of Alcobaça, the fortified village of Óbidos, Ericeira and Sintra.
Ride the Portuguese Camino by the coast, the Way of St. James and experience the coastal villages of the Minho region in Northwestern Portugal and Galiza. Discover the natural beauty of this coast, riding by Esposende and Caminha and cross-over to spain to discover beautiful Bayone, and the Vigo Ria, with it's trademark seafood. Ride by quiet forests and quaint villages in this spiritual but challenging adventure in the way of St. James!
This is an amazing oceanic bike tour that will take you from the start to the end of the Southwest coast of Portugal's natural park, the “Costa Vicentina”, experiencing the laidback and relaxed atmosphere of this region of the Alentejo and Algarve.
