Minho and Porto, Green Portugal, from the mountains to the sea

The Vinho Verde wine biking holiday, along the Minho province and the city of Porto, will give you an almost surrealistic “change of scenery” experience.

Starting high in the Peneda-Gerês National Park, you will literally cycle down surrounded by vineyards and Vinho Verde wine producers, until the Atlantic Ocean stretching before you as far as you can see.

This land is also blessed by the Minho, Lima and Douro rivers, each of which will accompany you at one stage or another of your ride.


This is a proud land, proud of its maritime history and of the remains of the fortifications that helped keep the Spanish well within their borders.

It is the land of fine mountain cuisine and, along the cost, a wealth of fish and seafood dishes, best enjoyed with a glass of Vinho Verde wine, white, rosé, red or sparkling.

Best of all, it is a biking journey that will put you in touch with some of the nicest Europeans. Do take every opportunity to meet the local inhabitants: fishermen, wine farmers, the kind lady at the local shop; listen to the stories of the owners of your accommodations in wine estates and other hotels.

Cycle across the ancient Roman bridge at Ponte de Lima, famous for its beauty and its importance to medieval pilgrims as they made their way from Porto to Santiago de Compostela.

Enjoy biking through the Minho at its most authentic.
