Pedal along Northern Portugal's rivers, coasts and valleys while learning about the historical figures and cities that played foundational roles in 12th Century Portugal. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Porto and Ponte de Lima and cycling along the Douro, Minho, and Lima rivers. Not only will you pass through three famous agriculture regions along our route, you will also get a taste of the gastronomic specialties.
Our route crisscrosses the famous Portuguese Camino and finishes in Spain’s Santiago de Compostela.
