Details

The Atlantic Coast biking holiday route represents 24/7 in the freshest, lightly salty air imaginable. As you cycle southwards from the Galician coastal region in the north, the beauty of continuously changing views over the vast Atlantic will impress itself on your mind and soul. Taste both Galician and Portuguese seafood. Meet the nicest fishermen and their wives who will welcome you and enjoy sharing lifetime experiences and customs. Stroll through the fish markets and watch them as they work.

Visit Porto, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, classified as a Unesco World Heritage Property. Learn about Port Wine, the beverage and the associated culinary dimension of its own. Taste, smell, meet and bask in the sun as you cycle gently along this beautiful coast.

Your cycling tour along the Atlantic coast:

Day 1: Arrival in Porto airport. Transfer to Baiona.

From Porto airport (Portugal) transfer to Baiona (in Galicia, Spain), a charming and lively harbour town, where a dish of fresh fish from the sea is an absolute must. Don’t forget to stroll around the harbour or the Monterreal Fort, famous for the Príncipe Tower.

Day 2: Baiona – Caminha  | 40 km or 60 km

The first half of the day on your bike you cycle in Spain, gently following the flat coastline.
You may enter Portugal by ferry, across the River Minho into the town of Caminha, or a bit further upriver, by crossing the Vila Nova de Cerveira bridge. In Caminha delight in the stately houses that set the scene as you enter the town, whose history dates as far back as pre-Roman times.

Day 3: Caminha – Viana do Castelo | 29 km or 49 km

Cycle southwards on excellent asphalted cycle paths along the coast and fields close to the coastline, until you reach Viana do Castelo. Located on the River Lima estuary, Viana do Castelo, is a bustling city with a good night life.
Discover Viana’s impressive history sheltering numerous stately town houses built by the merchants who provisioned the ships that took part in the Portuguese discoveries during the 16th century.

Day 4:  Viana do Castelo – Vila do Conde | 50 km

Cycle through vineyards and across the Protected Landscape Area of the Esposende coast, a wild life and flora reserve. Speak with the fishermen and their wives. They are such beautiful people - always warm-hearted and with a friendly word for every passer-by. Enjoy a wonderful sardine or other fresh fish dinner in town.

Day 5: Vila do Conde – Porto | 34 km or 48 km

Starting from the Atlantic, you will follow cycle paths until you reach the River Douro. Alongside this famous river, you will cycle into one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Porto is a World Heritage city. Ride gently past the famous Eiffel bridge; see how the proud Port Wine lodges rise uphill from the south bank of the River. It will be hard to choose where to dine tonight: Porto is famous for Port Wine and the diversity and quality for its cuisine.

Day 6: Porto – Furadouro | 42 km or 52 km

Leave the hustle and bustle of the city for the peace and quiet of the Atlantic shore. Once again, you will have a lovely ride along the coast, partly through a pine woods. The day ends in Furadouro, a hospitable town renowned for its excellent fish.

Day 7: Furadouro – Mira | 55 km or 65 km

For this last stage, do not miss to visit the small city of Aveiro, with its picturesque town centre; if you’re lucky, you will catch sight of a Moliceiro, the colourful wooden boats used for gathering seaweed.
Visit the saltpans and ride through the Protected Natural Reserve of the São Jacinto dunes. In Mira, a small fishing village, you will certainly be inspired by the beautiful multi-coloured striped houses.

Day 8: – Transfer from Mira to Porto airport

Transfer to Porto airport during the day.
