TOUR MAP

35km, +340m

On the last cycling day you will ride around the Lagoon and head to Óbidos. Before you reach the final destination of this tour there is still time to relax by a calm lagoon beach with a wide range of water sports available. From here you return and finally reach the old medieval settlement of Óbidos. This is your chance of get lost inside the castle walls and pretend you are the Lord of this mansion!

Lodging in Historical Hotel 4 star.

This day you will leave the ocean behind and travel along Alcoa River to reach Alcobaça. Halfway in the day there is a little settlement of Valado dos Frades to visit an old train station, famous for its tiles and past winner of prizes of the most beautiful train station of Portugal. Past Valado the river indicates the way to Alcobaça, this charismatic and historical village can offer a wonderful afternoon visiting the town, trying Geocaching or relax in one of the several terraces next to the Monastery. Heading to the accommodation there is the possibility to try the swimming pool, SPA or just use the playground.

This day will get you to the coast again. After a soft ride through agricultural fields there is the chance to visit the lovely village of São Martinho do Porto, with its incredible ocean bay, make the passage from the village to the ocean or go for some more Caches.

The journey through the pine forest continues. Following the coast line heading south this day the riding is done almost completely by dedicated bike lanes with nice infrastructures for bikers. The goal for the day is to reach Nazaré, a beautiful old fishing town that became worldwide famous because during the winter storms it is possible to see from the clifftop giant waves reaching the North Beach of Nazaré. This is where Garret MacNamara surfed the record breaking wave of 30 meters on January 2013. But don´t worry, all this action happens in the North Beach and the village develops next to this quiet and protected bay to the south of Nazaré. The village is full of different attractions.

Lodging in a brand new 4* Hotel with 2 restaurants, swimming pool and SPA.
