Bike tours Portugal
Discover Portugal with France Bike where several bicycle tours take you on the southwestern tip of Europe. Experience the diverse landscapes and culture of the proud Portuguese people. Experience the wild, often gently curving coast to the west of the Iberian Peninsula and cycle past the orange groves and cork oak forests to endless, sun-drenched beaches and secluded romantic coves. Portugal has also a proud maritime, cultural and historical heritage, which is well worth discovering. Think of Henry the Navigator and Vasco da Gama and the numerous expeditions of the Portuguese in the 15th and 16th century. The goal was the sea route to India around Africa and the associated wealth of this trade route for slaves, pepper, gold and ivory, which earned the Portuguese a golden age.
