WINTER SOUTH TOUR
Sea, sun, open plains, space, seafood and plenty of cows! This is how I would best describe the South Tour. A trip through the wild Atlantic Coast of south western Portugal where the Portuguese fish is at its finest quality and the open plains of Alentejo where cattle and black pork make up a delicious food landscape. Also included in the trip is a journey through the private Algarve, where deserted beaches, barbecues in the middle of orange groves and boat rides make up for an extraordinary journey.
The adventure begins in Lisbon. We will ride from Belém to Cascais by the riverside on the way to Cabo da Roca – the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal and continental Europe – and the romantic Sintra, often referred to as “the city of love”. On our way to Setubal we will have a lunch in Azeitão.
We will continue our route to Arraiolos – the land of famous handmade carpets, and the will had to Évora passing by Estremoz, in the heart of the Alentejo region. The roads in Alentejo are plane and there is a wonderful landscape with oaks and olive trees stretching out to the horizon. We arrive to Évora, facing the 15th-century classified monument Convento do Espinheiro, where the history, the culture and the gastronomy invade us, creating a mixture of sensations inside us, which Alentejo is all about.
Reaching the Algarve, the odor of the beach and sea joins our journey as we ride our motorcycles through Portugal’s playground. Here we will reach the tip of Europe in Sagres and see the place where the ancients believed the land ended and sea began. From here its a drive up to Lisbon, wiggling our way though one of Europe’s widest coastlines, and certainly one of the most exciting as well. A surfer’s and adventure seeker’s paradise, this coast has razor sharp cliffs which serve as a wall to the relentless pounding of the Atlantic. Now imagine sitting comfortably in a empty cliff, eating some grilled fish and chatting away with the locals as nature takes its course in front of you…This is what we call freedom!
