Cycling holidays in Portugal –

relaxed and carefree
Our cycling holidays in Portugal have a wide appeal: besides the glorious scenery, there are opportunities for bird-watching, and fascinating history and traditions to discover. In keeping with our Slow holiday philosophy, our carefully researched routes (described in easy-to-read notes) allow plenty of time to appreciate it all. And because there’s no group, no arrangements to make (we do all that), and no luggage, you can be spontaneous, stopping for a lunch of fresh fish or to gaze at the reflections on the water. 

Holidaying in Portugal & Madeira

Travel between the UK and mainland Portugal is currently restricted. If, however, you would like to plan a holiday – be it a walking, cycling or touring holiday – we are accepting bookings for departures from 1 March 2021 onwards, with the added bonus that prices for our summer holidays remain unchanged from 2020.

Unlike the mainland, travel to Madeira is currently permitted. All travellers to the island are subject to health screening for signs of Covid-19 on arrival. It is also necessary either to undertake a Covid-19 test within 72 hours of departure and provide evidence of a negative result on arrival, or to take the test on arrival then self-isolate at your first accommodation until the result is available (usually within 12 hours). Further details of the requirements can be found at and

Are our cycling holidays in Portugal right for you?

The flat terrain makes for easy cycling in Portugal’s Aveiro region, giving you plenty of time to make the most of your surroundings and, of course, relax by the sea. To be sure that our cycling holidays in Portugal are right for you, take a look at the definitions of our cycling grades below. (Our grading system assumes you are using a ‘regular’ bike, so if you choose an e-bike, bear in mind that the cycling will be considerably easier.)
  • Easy cycling for all with shorter days mainly on the flat, but some gentle ascents.
  • Easy-to-moderate cycling featuring undulating routes with more frequent short ascents, and a mix of shorter and longer days.
  • Moderate cycling with some longer, steady uphill sections, and longer days.
  • Fairly strenuous cycling featuring longer days with some sustained climbs.
