Tour 1


A fantastic tour by secondary roads, full of curves, with very little traffic, and beautiful Atlantic landscapes.
From 8 to 13 days
March to October

Portugal has so many great roads for motorcycle riding. This Tour brings them all together without forgetting the big cities of Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra.

From a biker point of view, this trip is very fun since the route is very twisty, with 8,200 curves on the basic route, which gives a Curve / Km ratio. 3.37, quite a high value. But they are not particularly tight curves, so the route is very fun to ride a motorcycle, without being difficult. The Portuguese roads are not the best in Europe, but they are in a fairly good condition and have little traffic.

In terms of landscapes, this trip has a great variety; mountains, pine, eucalyptus and cork oak forests, vineyards, rivers, lakes and the coast, making it very attractive. If you like photography, you are going to have countless photo opportunities.

As always, we have paid special attention to finding exceptional accommodation and Portugal has made this task easy for us, since, like Spain, in Portugal there are many historic buildings converted into hotels, so you will have the opportunity to sleep in castles, palaces, fortresses, monasteries and convents, several centuries old.

In the monumental aspect, you will have the opportunity to make long visits in the three important cities of Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra, and you will also be able to visit other monuments along the way such as the cathedrals of Braga or Évora, or the fabulous palaces of Sintra.

And finally, about Gastronomy, in Portugal you can enjoy a lot, and without spending too much money. Certainly the Portuguese level is lower than the Spanish, especially in haute cuisine, but even so it is one of the best gastronomies in Europe.

For all this, as you will see, our Tour of Portugal is a VERY COMPLETE trip, which has a bit of everything.
