What to expect
Day 1: Arrival  The rendez-vous is at the Lisbon Airport where we will welcome and gladly brief you with the scheduled program and its equipment. Together, we’ll head towards the charming country house Herdade da Matinha, located in Cerca. After setting up the equipment and getting familiarized with the GPS and all the required information you’ll have time to enjoy true luxury: the silence and melody of nature. Day 2: Porto Covo and Pessegueiro island We head towards Porto Covo, a lovely fishing village whose beaches are protected by imponent slopes. We will also stop by Vila da Sonega, where time has stopped and where you’ll be able to feast yourself with some typical snacks. The typical Cercal village awaits you for and end-of-day snack. Herdade da Matinha spares any introductions (33km + 500m). Day 3: Algarve The destination is Vila Nova de Milfontes, one of the dearest villages in Portugal. We will reach Cabo Sardão whose lighthouse marks the perfect harmony between land and water and where the white storks are queens and build their nests in the slopes. We head to Zambujeira do Mar known for its wild and almost deserted beaches and its astonishing views over the Atlantic Ocean. After that, we head to Odeceixe is our next destination where we will  sleep in “Casas do Moinho” (61km + 500m). Day 4: Odeceixe  The destination is the valleys and plains around Odeceixe where in between mountain and shore, cork and evergreen oak trees create the perfect combination. The birds’ chirp is a constant in this area because the diversity of bird species is big here, which makes it a great place for birdwatching. If time as passed and you’re still not back, finding the way is easy. All you have to do is look for the windmill (26km + 300m). Day 5: Exploring the Rota Vicentina, fishermen  tracks  The destination is the shore enchantments, exploring the “Rota Vicentina” fishermen tracks and feeling inspired by the huge Amoreira Beach, the famous Arrifana and Monte Clérigo beaches and the enchantments of its waves that seem be hand drawn. We reach Aljezur and  a few kilometres more and we reach the beautiful preserved Village of Pedralva who invites you to relax of all the day’s emotions (50km +700m). Day 6: The beaches  We’ll head towards the Pedralva village, where the pine tree woods show the way. From there we’ll pedal to Carrapateira peer where the astonishing view over the ocean will make you feel unique. The Amado, Amoreira and Bordeira beaches are true references when it comes to surfing and other water sports, and make the delights of its visitors. We head back to Aldeia da Pedralva, (25km + 350m).
