Day 4: Olhão – Azinheiro – San Miguel – Olhão, approx. 43 km

Today’s tour takes you into the interior of the Algarve. There are many small villages here, which convey the charm of Portuguese country life in their originality. Through a sparsely populated, unspoiled area with little traffic, the route climbs up to São Miguel, the second highest mountain in the Algarve. A fantastic view of the hills of the Serra to the north and over the coast awaits you. Then it’s a relaxed downhill ride through the idyllic hinterland back to Olhão.

Durch Weinreben, Orangen- und Zitronenhaine radeln Sie hinunter zur berühmten Felsenalgarve nach Carvoeiro. Steil zum Meer abfallende rötliche Klippen mit kleinen Sandbuchten prägen nun das Bild. Über Portimão und durch den kleinen Fischerort Alvor geht es hinauf zum breiten Mündungsdelta des Rio Alvor. Hinunter zum Meer und entlang des breiten Strandes Meia Praia gelangen Sie nach Lagos.

Day 6: Lagos – Luz – Salema – Barão de São João – Lagos, approx. 51 km

You can reach the former slave market via the palm-lined promenade of Lagos.
