Cycling – Off the Beaten Track

In the heart of the Alto Minho Region, Viana do Castelo is one of the most beautiful cities in the north of Portugal and it is a true gem for those who enjoy mountain, enduro and road cycling.

Exploring Portugal by bike is a unique experience. With a coastline of around 800km, the sea will be your companion along some of the best Portuguese routes.

With mild temperatures all year round and plenty of sun, Portugal is a great cycling destination. Thanks to its great diversity of landscapes within a short distance you can go from the hills to the beach, from the hustle and bustle of the city to the peacefulness of the countryside. By bike it is even easier to take a shortcut that will lead you to that spot where the view is absolutely breathtaking.
