Hiking and Cycling Summer-Friendly Trips in Portugal

Summer means it is time to explore less crowded places.

So before you make your summer hiking and cycling holidays plans, check out our offers for the season, on routes less visited by tourists on this hot, beach-favoring time.

Portugal boasts a Mediterranean climate year-round, but the cooler months – November through February – are best avoided for those who seek the sunny weather. Rainfall peaks in March and April, but gives way to a glorious May and a sunny Summer.

Those who travel to Portugal from June through September can enjoy traditional festivals like the São João in Porto and the Santo António in Lisbon. Beach dwellers can rest easy on the coast with balmy 30º C (85º F) heat and a faint ocean breeze.

There is much to discover in Europe’s most westerly country, for while golfers and sunseekers flood to the southerly Algarve, swathes of the rest of Portugal remain unexplored. Regions vary enormously in their weather, cuisine, architecture, and wines, so a journey from north to south yields a rich bounty of different experiences.
