TRIP INFORMATION

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

TOUR MAP

37km, +350m

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 to get lost inside the castle walls and pretend you are the Lord of this mansion!

This day you will leave the ocean behind and travel along Alcoa River to reach Alcobaça. Halfway through the day there is a little settlement of Valado dos Frades to visit an old train station, which is famous for its tiles and a past win-ner of prizes for 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 relaxing 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. Leaving this village behind the idea is to reach Óbidos Lagoon, a place where several different water sports are available. It is also a nice and secure place to go into the water.

This is it! It went by so fast. Today it is time to put all the incredible memories on your luggage and say goodbye. It has been for sure a great adventure and we truly want you to come back and discover more of Portugal’s infinite beautiful trails.

30km, +300m

23km, +150m

The journey through the pine forest continues. Following the coastline heading south this day the riding is done almost completely on 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 giant waves from the clifftop reach 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.
