For the perfect tour we provide you with routes, guidance, some useful information and transportation to the starting point of the tour and from the ending point of the tour back to your accommodation/airport. The greatest advantage of this tour of ours is that you can set your own pace, nobody will slow you down or rush you, if you want to take your time and have a long look at the beautiful scenery over coffee , you can do so, you will be on your own time schedule which you can’t do on group tours. That is the whole point of this tour so you can enjoy to the fullest what Portugal has to offer and also you can share it with your friends.

Our North Portugal bicycle tour starts from the “Land of the stags”, from Vila Nova de Cerveira, the most northern part of Portugal. The history of this town goes way back, providing the visitors much to see such as the medieval city center and the castle from the 14th century, the deer statue on top of a mountain looking over the city, numerous churches and chapels. From here your tour continues along the river Minho right on the Spanish / Portuguese border through the town of Caminha all the way to the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Caminha is also full of wonderful sights it is worth looking around there. The tour continues along the cost of the Atlantic Ocean all the way down to Porto. On your way there you get to cycle through such famous towns as Viana do Castelo (known for Santa Luzia Basilica and its traditional ship building), Póvoa de Varzim the town of fishermen and Vila do Conde where you can see Santa Clara Monastery and its aqueducts.

Do you like seafood? Then this is the place for you! Every single town mentioned above has their own specialty. For example “Pescada à Poveira” (the fisherman platter of Póvoa de Varzim) or all the variations of meals made of codfish (Bacalhau assado no forno, feijão com bacalhau e couve, etc.) or their beloved grilled Sardinia. And of course what could be better to drink while eating these amazing meals than the two most famous wines of the region, Porto wine and the so-called ‘Green Wine’, which is the number 2 export wine of Portugal right after Porto wine, this type of wine can be made of grapes growing only in the northern region. Let’s not forget about the desserts you can eat there, it is best if you try as many as you can, you will not regret it for sure!
To sum it up, here in the northern part there is so much to see, feel and taste, come and pick up the rhythm of Portugal!
