Cycling the East Algarve
Cycle through East Algarve's glorious countryside and along its stunning coastlines on peaceful cycle tracks and quiet roads.
Tavira still is an unspoiled jewel at the eastern end of the Algarve. Located about 20 miles from the border with Spain it is an old, attractive fishing town, which still retains its original charm. Fishing is still a mainstay of the local economy and the fishing boats are moored just beyond the old market.
It is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the Algarve, with some fine Renaissance architecture, numerous churches, tree-lined squares and a romantic air.
The routes we designed will give you the chance to enjoy the region’s wonderful scenery, its flora and fauna, and its abundance of wildlife, as we pass through nature reserves of Ria Formosa and Castro Marim.
There’ll be plenty of time to stop and admire the view, or for a refreshment.
Our week begins with an easygoing coastal cycling day, and includes countryside and wooded trails, and visits to traditional fishing towns.
The support vehicle will be on hand all the time.
