#1 Rota Vicentina by Mountain Bike

This mountain bike program will take you on an end-to-end journey of Rota Vicentina’s Historical Way, exploring Alentejo’s countryside and west Algarve’s unspoiled landscapes. Cycling along dirt trails, you’ll have the opportunity to discover a deeply rural part of the country, where local populations still count on agriculture, cattle breeding, and fishing as sources of income.
Having its start in Santiago do Cacém, the only city along the whole route, the trail heads South, passing thru small towns and hamlets, farmlands and agricultural fields, cork oak forests, reservoirs and streams between the plains and coastal hills covered in short vegetation, before reaching the cape of Cape St. Vincent with his proud lighthouse with the red top in the very SW corner of Portugal.

Includes: 6 nights B&B | 5 Self-guided stages | luggage transfer | Mountain bike rental | GPS
