 HISTORICAL CENTRAL PORTUGAL

 

Closing out our Europe 2019 program with some steady and social bikepacking kilometres through a less travelled land of mixed terrain along the historic Portuguese / Spanish border

Portugal is famous for its sun-drenched beaches of the Algarve and the rugged coastline of the Atlantic. Head inland from this and you will find one of the world’s oldest borders between Portugal and Spain. Its a rugged and mountainous landscape dotted with ruined castles and beautiful old villages.

Join us on this mini bikepacking adventure, enjoy the last of the European sunshine, a hint of Autumn and some challenging routes. We will stay in small historic villages to freshen up, eat local food and enjoy a good nights sleep in a hotel bed. Each day will offer 75km of mixed terrain. Some steep hills, technical trails, wide open tarmac roads and 4x4 forest trails. This is the perfect trip for those new to bikepacking or those more experienced riders who fancy a good end of season, long weekend away.
