Trans Algarve Cycling Trip
Trip Dates: dates available throughout the year
Cost: £699.00 in a shared room. (Please enquire for single room supplements)
We have an outstanding trip available at various dates throughout the year to Algarve, Portugal.
The trip consists of three days riding and depending on flight times, 3 or 4 nights. (most likely 4)
The route crosses the Algarve region in Portugal from Sagres in the far south west corner, through the mountainous interior and finishes in Vila Real, on the Spanish border. You will cross the width of the country.
We will stay in excellent quality hotels each night, all with secure storage for your bike.
Breakfast and dinner is included in the cost of the trip but lunch will need to be purchased en route. Thankfully, this is Portugal, not France and a 3 course lunch with wine can be as little as 12€.
We offer full support for the ride with an on road guide (or more if there are larger numbers of riders) plus van support.
We will collect you and your bike from Faro Airport and take you in a bus to our first stop in Sagres, in the south west of the country. Depending on your flight times, we will eat at the hotel on the first night, although we will be unable to eat if your arrival is after 9.30pm.
After riding to Monchique on the first day, our hotel is a converted farmhouse which is eco friendly and serves great food. You can also enjoy warm evenings sat on the terrace sharing stories and having a social drink.
On the second day of riding we will head through the mountains and eventually finish for the day in Vilamoura. Our hotel is a resort type of hotel with a large pool and is situated a very short walk from the excellent marina with a varied choice of restaurants where we will eat in the evening.
The final day of riding takes us to Vila Real, which is on the Spanish border. Our hotel for the night is situated in the pretty town square and is very comfortable and excellently located to go for a drink in the local bars and to eat out at a restaurant in the evening.
We will drop you back to Faro in time for your flights the next day.
