What you'll do

Starting from Évora, you will have the TRANSFER to the outskirts into the CORK woodland avoinding to cycle with the heavy traffic. We will arrive to a farm and have a breifing and prepare the ebikes. Then we will cycle in the nature towards the surrounding plains and hills of Monfurado which are within a protected area due to it's very diverse ecosystem of cork oak (MONTADO). Our itinerary will be mostly in OFF-ROAD paths in cork forest, crossing traditional villages, the rural outskirts and cycling along ancient roads, MEDIEVEL BRIDGE and reaching the Neolithic temples of ALMENDRES and ZAMBUJEIRO Dolmen. The ebikes (BOSCH 500W pack) are very high quality, but you must be prepared for some exercise. The normal distance is 28km, but customizable for more and less and adaptable for your fitness.

Sharing my passion for the diverse geography of Portugal and it's history, culture and landscapes. In this business we are three geographer's António Tavares, Lídia Sousa and João Varanda. My study of geography and geo-sciences is not limited to a university degree and a post-graduation but also contributions through studies and published articles about geotourism. The concept of geotourism gives us a deep understanding of the relationship between nature and history. The region of Évora, specially the city and its outskirts, is a result of a balance between human activity and nature.

Where you'll be

From a farm in the CORK woodland we'll cycle and see the transition in the landscape passing the traditional MONTE, rural villas and/or cozy cottage. We will go right in the middle of the grazing cattle (cows, black Iberian pigs, sheep, etc). And, we will be climbing to the top hills to reach the ancient stone temples from the Neolithic: ALMENDRES or ZAMBUJEIRO.
