Hiking and Cycling Coastal Tours in Portugal

Coastal tours show some of Portugal’s most famous landscapes.

See the iconic Rota Vicentina in the southwest of Portugal. Enjoy fresh local produce right out of the ocean, taste good food and explore stunning coastlines in the Algarve. See the world’s famous white storks along the southwestern roads.

Our long coastline is bathed by the Atlantic ocean, which brought Portugal closer to other peoples and cultures. Let the bright sunshine that turns the skin golden and warms the soul accompany you.

The sun fills the fine white sands of our beaches with light and joy. Whether they are immense stretches of sand as far as the eye can see, or little coves sheltered by rocks, each beach has its own dazzling and surprising beauty. Some are crowded, with lots of entertainment, while others remain deserted and unexplored, holding secrets waiting to be unveiled… there’s always something for every taste and state of mind.

But despite their many differences, the beaches do have something in common: their quality, demonstrated by a large number of EU blue flags awarded each year, certifying their excellent conditions and amenities.

The clear waters of the sea also have different moods. Some beaches have quiet, peaceful seas, especially in the Algarve, which even in the winter is a great holiday destination; others have livelier seas, with waves that are just right for various high adrenaline sports.

Many hotels and resorts enjoy stunning views of the ocean and are the perfect places to relax and enjoy their genuine hospitality. You can sit at a restaurant table to savor the delicious Portuguese cuisine, also tempered by the sun and the sea. Take a look at our hiking and cycling tours below.
