E-Bikes Culinary Tour of Rural Algarve with Breakfast and Lunch

The local farmer will set your breakfast table with his own farm fruits and produce.

After breakfast you will continue the rural tour on your e-bike passing through white-washed villages in the Algarve Barrocal area.  

Our first shopping stop will be at the local cheesemaker to collect the freshest goat’s cheese for our picnic basket. We then visit the village bakery and learn first-hand from the baker how to make the delicious Portuguese chouriço bread. Chouriço is a Portuguese pork sausage, made with spices and wine, that is placed in the centre of the bread before baking it in a wood-fired oven.  

We will chose a panoramic point on top of a hill to enjoy our cheese and savoury bread before returning via the scenic river route back to our starting point.
