Cycling East Algarve

This cycling holiday is like a banquet for your senses as you experience the breathtaking landscapes of East Algarve. Inland, it is possible to meander for miles through enchanted valleys, hear birdsong, see few people and find peace.

The coastal strip is where the ocean is tamed by the sand islands, salt pans and azure lagoons of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, where flamingos and water birds abound.

A week of fun and adventure, with both surfaced cycle tracks and quiet lanes. There is a mixture of flat and gently undulating terrain suitable for everyone./p>

We’ll be based in Monte Gordo, a popular resort town situated on one of the finest beaches of Portugal, stretching for miles in either direction with fine sands and clear crystal waters. The town has excellent tourist facilities, including great bars and cafés and many varied restaurants.

Our program includes 6 wonderful rides through the Ria Formosa Natural Park, the Nature Reserve of Castro Marim, through the Marismas da Isla Cristina and on the lush interior of the Algarve.

The program is very flexible so you can choose your ride for the day. In many cases it will also be possible to easily lengthen or cut short the rides.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
