THE ITINERARY

Welcome to Lisbon! Our guide will pick you up at the Airport and transfer you to Sesimbra, a lovely fishing town set in a sheltered bay, perfect place for you to start your tour, explore and breathe the fresh air of the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy your rest here because tomorrow new adventures await you!

Start the day going to one of the most beautiful sceneries of this coast - Odeceixe Beach! Then follow a valley where once caravels sailed to the village of Aljezur, about 5 km inland, and get up the narrow streets to the medieval castle! Ride through some forests and get again close to sea, pass through valleys and arrive to a typical and old village once abandoned and recovered as a hotel. The Village of Pedralva was once inhabited by over 100 people but entered a painful process of desertification. Nowadays, thanks to the hotel, Pedralva  lives again.

In this last day you will follow a coastal route that will let you to discover some of the most beautiful and secret beaches of Vicentina coast. Then ride south till Cape S. Vicente - the south-westernmost 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.
