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 southwestern Portugal. Riding through where the Portuguese fish is at its finest quality and through the open plains of Alentejo. Over there is where cattle and black pork make up a delicious food landscape. It is also included in the trip a journey through the private Algarve. Here you will find deserted beaches, barbecues in the middle of orange groves and boat rides make up for an extraordinary journey.
The journey starts in Lisbon and heads south where the landscape imminently engulfs us. We can enjoy its vast grazing pastures, vineyards, lakes and the constant reminder of the Moorish presence in this territory over 700 years ago. Here it is all about taking it slow and joining the locals in their easy way of life through slow food and gentle conversations.
Following the curvy flow of the Guadiana River, we ride through uncharted Portuguese territory and cross the Guadiana Valley Natural Park. There is no living soul for hundreds of kilometres. Reaching the Algarve, the odor of the beach and the sea joins our journey as we ride our motorcycles through Portugal’s playground.
In the meantime we will reach the tip of Europe in Sagres and see the place where the ancients believed the land ended and the sea began. Next it is a drive up to Lisbon. We will be wiggling our way through 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 that serve as a wall to the relentless pounding of the Atlantic. Now imagine sitting comfortably in an empty cliff, eating some grilled fish and chatting away with the locals. Furthermore as nature takes its course in front of you…
In conclusion: This is what we call freedom!
