Itinerary:
Day 1: Arrival.
Welcome to Lisbon! Our guide will pick you up at the Airport and transfer you to Sesimbra, a lovely fishing town set in a sheltered bay, perfect place for you to start your tour, explore and breathe the fresh air of the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy your rest here because tomorrow new adventures await you!

Day 2: Bike Sesimbra to Grândola (86km, +950m).
A fantastic day with emphasis on crossing the Arrábida Natural Park, a group of small limestone hills near the ocean and a rare example of a very ancient Mediterranean vegetation, result of a very special microclimate and sharp topography. This park represents a peaceful, natural and protected encounter between land and sea. In the middle of the trail you will cross Sado river by Ferry to reach Troia Península and then, in the end, arrive at Grândola. Stop at any of the exceptional restaurants bent over the Atlantic Ocean and have a taste of our exquisite Portuguese food.

Day 3: Bike Grândola to Cercal (64km, +800m).
Start your day going through Grândola, the city that inspired our strong and revolutionary musicians to compose some amazing intervention music. Follow south and let the cork forest fields keep you company as you ride in the pure Alentejo area. Pass Santiago do Cacém, a peaceful and charming village with a strong medieval Castle, that used to take a dominant defensive position in the modest hill that was built in. And finally continue to Sonega, and shortly after arrive to your cozy hotel in the town of Cercal, where a peaceful and traditional accommodation is expecting you. Enjoy the silence and the tranquility.

Day 4: Bike Cercal to Odeceixe (73km, +650m).
Today you’ll enter the famous Natural Reserve of the Southwest Alentejano and Vicentina Coast, and what fantastic coastline awaits you! Start by passing in one of the most enchanting coastal towns, Vila Nova de Mil Fontes, where the River Mira and the Atlantic Ocean meet in a stunning view over the bridge. Close after you can find the stunning Sardão Cape along the coastline admire the shafts embedded in the rocks walls, the seeded islets here and there and the many white stork couples that choose this coast as their nesting site. Follow through the fields till you go down to a river, where at the end, you’ll arrive at Odeceixe, an attractive village on a hillside with an old windmill, sitting on the tallest hill.

Day 5: Bike Odeceixe to Pedralva (73km, +1100m).
Start the day going to one of the most beautiful sceneries of this coast - Odeceixe Beach!

Ride through some forests and get again close to sea, pass through valleys and arrive to a typical and old village once abandoned and recovered as a hotel. The Village of Pedralva was once inhabited by over 100 people but entered a painful process of desertification. Nowadays, thanks to the hotel, Pedralva lives again.
