King’s Coast <br /> 3-day express guided bike tour

King for a day…or two. Our three-day King’s Coast tour features many of the great highlights found on our signature route, Essence of the Coast, but is designed so you can enjoy a cycling adventure and feel the winds at your back within a shorter time frame. We’ve mapped a route within the heart of Costa Azul, the Parque Natural Arrábida region, which takes you through vineyards and castle courtyards, and along some of the great country pathways past the carefree flocks of sheep, quietly chewing away on fields of fresh, green grass.

Day 1 | Sesimbra

Begin this amazing ride at Cabo Espichel, a magnificent prominent point where the windswept landscape dramatically cuts away and marries the sea. This ride takes you through the breathtaking Parque Natural Arrábida, as you hug the roadways along the Atlantic ocean. Head along the rim of the park which allows for the best panoramic views of the 180million year old Arrábida. You’ll stay at the Castle of St. Filipe, relaxing above the bay after a great day of riding. (Apr. 10 or 15 miles)

Day 2 | Setúbal

After a morning visit to a traditional mercado central, there will be a quick return to the coast before turning inland toward the village of Azeitão, known for award winning wines, olive oil, and Queijo de Azeitão, a mouth-watering cheese made from creamy sheep’s milk. Enjoy a wine tasting and picnic lunch at a charming traditional farm before visiting a 16th century tile artisan, then heading through the valley to the luxurious Castelo de Palmela that afternoon. (Apr. 15 or 20 miles)

Day 3 | Palmela

Day 3 includes lounging in your castle haven, followed by a final ride along a ridge of intricate windmills, and why not top it off with a toast to your stay on the Costa Azul with another wine tasting at one of the local farms? (Apr. 5 or 10 miles)
