Ride along the Atlantic coast past quaint villages and imposing castles, go up and down mountain roads and enjoy one of the best scenic routes in the world in the Douro valley. And on top of it all see the colourful cityscapes of Porto and Lisbon to complete your experience!
We start and finish at Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. The first part of our route leads towards Serra da Estrella Natural Park. After a stopover in Coimbra with its medieval university, we pass through the picturesque Aldeias do Xisto region famous for its beautifully preserved villages as we head for the Torre mountain — the highest point of mainland Portugal (1,993 m). Then we go back towards the coast via N222 nestled in the Douro valley which is rightfully considered one of the most scenic roads in the world.
Once we are through with port wine tasting in Porto, the second part of our tour begins, and it is all about the ocean! Prepare to explore coastal roads and take photo breaks near lighthouses and in small towns. You will see Nazaré famous for its huge waves, Peniche with its beaches revered in the surf community and Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of mainland Europe.
