Algarve - 8 Days

Day 1 - Arrival in FaroFaro is the beautiful capital of the Algarve and has old city walls and many sights. You will spend the night in Praia de Faro.Day 2 - From Praia de Faro to Benfarras 39 kmAfter a ride through the Ria Formosa Natural Park, you cycle into the hilly countryside of the Algarve. You first cycle through areas with extensive citrus, olive and almond orchards. Both the village of Santa Barbara and the historic market town of Loulé are enjoyable to stop and look around. After a stretch on semi-paved roads and through quiet, rugged farmland, a long descent brings you back to the coastal area of Benfarras where your hotel is located.Day 3 - From Benfarras to Porches 47 kmThe first part of the second day runs flat through the so-called park of Vilamoura, where you get an idea of the coastal area. Beyond Boliqueime, the hills begin. After the pretty village of Paderne, you ride into a picturesque valley with a water mill and castle ruins. After a steep climb, you then cycle fairly flat via Tunes, Algoz and Pêra (authentic, Portuguese villages) to Armação on the coast, where you can see something of the influence of mass tourism. The eastern part of this place is full of flats, while on the western side the locals' multicoloured fishing boats line the beach. You pass the beautiful chapel Nossa Senhora da Rocha and just before the pottery village of Porches, you reach your hotel with swimming pool.Day 4 - From Porches to Alte 45 kmDrive along quiet side roads to the Moorish town of Silves, located along the river Arade. The old town centre and red sandstone castle are well worth a visit. Through a citrus-filled valley and past the Arade reservoir, you reach São Bartolomeu de Messines, birthplace of 19th-century poet João de Deus. The main church is a successful mix of different styles. A panoramic road then leads slightly uphill through the green hills to your beautifully located panoramic hotel just outside the spring town of Alte.Day 5 - From Alte to São Brás de Alportel 42 kmAfter climbing to the village of Benafim, you cycle through a desolate and rather rugged landscape below along the Rocha da Pena. A short signposted hiking trail leads you up to this high rocky plateau which, with its local flora and fauna, is a valuable natural monument. Via the villages of Salir and Querenca, you follow rolling, green roads to São Brás de Alportel. Your overnight stay is a pretty town surrounded by hills.Day 6 - From São Brás de Alportel to Tavira 36 or 47 kmFrom São Brás de Alportel, you descend to Estoi, where you can visit a baroque palace with beautiful gardens and the Roman villa of Milreu. You cycle under the foothills of the Serra de Monte Figo via the village of Moncarapacho to the lagoon coast, which you keep following as best you can until your final destination, the holiday park Pedras d'el Rei. Your stone cottage here stands among ancient trees, including Portugal's oldest olive tree (200 BC). The dam-connected Ilha de Tavira (1.5 km away) offers a beautiful, long sandy beach here. You can also take a short cruise (11 km) to the atmospheric, old port town of Tavira.Day 7 - From Tavira to Faro 42 kmFrom Pedras del Rei, you cycle along the beautiful lagoon coast as much as possible. Via the seaside resort of Fuseta, you reach the fishing town of Olhão. Here you will find beautiful churches in the old town and a maze of narrow old streets with the typical white, often beautifully tiled, cube-shaped houses. The oriental-looking market halls are also a feast for the eyes. You can visit the car-free island of Armona by ferry. After a final diversions through the quiet, slightly hilly interior, you will arrive in the historic centre of Faro, the capital of the Algarve. The cathedral Sé de Faro is the big eye-catcher here. Your hotel is located just outside the metre-high city walls near the marina.Day 8 - Departure or extensionYou will be transferred to the airport for your return flight.
You can extend your holiday to enjoy the sun and beach at Praia de Faro or at a hotel with pool in peaceful Quarteira. Transfers can be arranged for you.
