Sintra-Cascais Royal Retreats Bike Tour
Get to know the places where the privileged spent(d) their summer!
After riding the canopy roads of Sintra-Cascais Nature Reserve we will finish on a rolling downhill along Europe’s westernmost coastline to the yacht harbor in Cascais.
Sintra’s stunning setting on the north slopes of the granite Serra, among wooded ravines and fresh water springs, made it a favorite retreat for the kings of Portugal. We will be riding through the picturesque historic town center before entering a fairytale forest.
After a long downhill, with an optional visit to Cabo da Roca, we will be riding past gold sand beaches and along the cliff shores of Guincho ending up in Cascais, once a cozy fisherman’s village now a sophisticated shopping town and an interesting area to discover on bike!

“Bus tour was not nearly as good as our bike tour. Too mush sitting and waiting. Not enough fresh air and adventure. We really enjoyed ourselves yesterday!”
