THE BEST SUMMER TOUR IS HERE

Hiking and Cycling Summer Trips in Portugal

Summer means it is time to explore the 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-favouring 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.

Short Break Douro

The Douro Valley is here to make you surrender to its outstanding beauty. The hiking through the immense valleys and the train journey from Porto to the Douro slopes, leading you to amazing vineyard terrace sceneries, will mark this unforgettable experience. Find yourself in small wine producing villages on the slopes, with stunning views over the terraces. At night rest in wine farms, delight yourself with homemade dinners and drink the wines produced on the doorstep. Proud people, quality wine and traditional lifestyles make this a special place to visit.
