Portugal Bike Tours

Portugal is having its long overdue moment. No longer just the place where Port wine is produced, the Douro Valley won UNESCO World Heritage status in 2001 and is often described as the most beautiful wine region anywhere. With verdant valleys and terraced vineyards that plunge into the Douro River, the viticulture here has evolved into a world-renowned wine industry.

The history of the Alentejo, the south-central region between Lisbon and Spain, is told through the spectrum of structures: ancient megaliths, converted convents, medieval castles, and Roman temples. The cork trade is king here, but the region also yields marble quarries, olive groves, and—of course—rolling vineyards of Touriga, Aragonés, and Arinto grapes.

Called the Hawaii of the Atlantic, the Azorean archipelago is a happy hodgepodge. Pineapple plantations, evocative ocean views, and volcanic slopes check all the expected island boxes. But São Miguel is full of surprises—including a thriving tea industry, a defining dairy trade, and the unexpected ease of reaching this emerging tropical destination.

Eat

Smoked meats and organic beef, full-flavored cheeses, octopus, bacalhau (salted cod), hearty stews including volcano-cooked cozido, tropical fruit, and pasteis de nata (egg custard tarts)

Drink

In the Douro Valley, dark, luscious Ports with flavors of dark berries, licorice, and chocolate, plus a new generation of full-bodied and velvety fruit-bomb table wine; in the Alentejo, harmonious, full-bodied, and robust reds and crisp, fruit-forward white wine; Azorean craft beer and coffee
