THE ITINERARY

Welcome to Portugal! Our guide will pick you up at the Airport and transfer you to Santiago do Cacém, a lovely town known for its beautiful medieval castle. This is the perfect place for you to start your tour, explore and breath the fresh air. Enjoy your rest here because tomorrow new adventures await you!

Ride through some forests and get again close to sea by the incredible village of Carrapateira, a quiet, pretty, spread-out village rounded by a wild coast, with copper-colored and ash-grey cliffs covered in speckled yellow and green scrub, backing creamy, wide sands… Follow a dirt road along the sea where it's possible to see this region at its most beautiful. On the way, pass by these stunning beaches, with incredible colorful cliffs. Go up on a dirt road, through a beautiful round pine forest and arrive to a typical and old village once abandoned and now recovered as a hotel, the Pedralva Village Hotel.

In this last day you will follow a coastal route that will let you discover some of the most beautiful and secret beaches of Vicentina coast. Then ride south till Cape S. Vicente - the southwestern-most point of Continental Europe. This is a magical place where we can almost hear the echoes of the voices of sailors and pilgrims. Rounded by monumental cliffs and outstanding views over the coastline, this is also a privileged area to watch the natural phenomenon of bird migration.
