Day 1 Arrival into Faro

Upon arrival in Faro airport, you will be picked up by private transfer and taken to the Magnolia hotel within the Quinta do Lago resort. Discover this luxury leisure and lifestyle resort in the Algarve, Portugal. Surrounded by 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park, Quinta do Lago offers sport, lesiure, wellbeing and luxury.

Day 2Pastel del Nata

For the Portuguese speakers, yes the title of this ride is a pastry! Today you will pick up your bikes from the central ‘Campus’, which has been home to some of the world’s most successful sporting teams. Enjoy an espresso at the bar and check out a number of routes on the big screens to decide which you fancy the most.

Our suggestion today is to ride a great 105km circuit and there is a stop en route where you can enjoy the best Pastel de Nata in the Algarve. Your ride takes you into the hills via Son Bras and Salil before you arrive into Alte. Stop at Germano Bicicarte cafe where Pedro can serve you some of the best pastries and cakes in the region, and you can marvel at the bikes and the art. What’s not to love?

Day 3Son Bras

If you want to get some good mileage under your belt with a decent amount of climbing, we recommend the route out to Sao Bras and then into the hills. Your riding will be on pristine tarmac and you will hear the zip of your wheels as you loop back around to Santa Catarina. Head back to Estoi and then back to the resort. Feel free to extend or decrease this ride depending on how you’re feeling. If you fancy a shorter distance, we recommend a 75km taking in 1,000m of climbing. You will ride via Estoi, Querenca and Loule, passing through countless vineyards and orange groves. If you get a chance to sample some of the oranges and satsumas, you won’t be disappointed.

Total distance120kmTotal climb1700m
Day 4Departure

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before heading out into the wine estates of the Algarve. Ride towards Sao Bartolomeu and enjoy a loop of the magnificent vineyards before heading back to the hotel in time for a private transfer back to the airport.
