Santiago de Compostela-Porto

A divine cycling experience

Your bike trip begins in Spain, in Santiago de Compostela, famous for its religious heritage and pilgrimages, as well as its landmark cathedral and splendid Portico of Glory. You will then pedal to Pontevedra, a model pedestrian city, where everything is within walking distance and conducive to pleasant strolls along the shores of the Lérez River or the Island of Sculptures. Once in Portugal, Viana do Castelo rewards your efforts with the spectacular panorama unfolding from the Basilica of Santa Luzia. You will then pedal to Porto to sample a wide array of savoury ports – ruby, tawny, white or rosé, not to mention Portugal’s famous vinho verde. Add to this exhilarating cycling, refreshing sea air, delicious seafood and magnificent sunsets, and you will find your cycling experience in Galicia and the Costa Verde, where water was miraculously transformed into wine during Biblical times, nothing short of divine…
