Day 2 - Bike tour “Along the Eco-Trail”

details

This is a trail built on top of an old railway, which is only for pedestrians or cyclers.

You will cycle through farmland and most likely will find cows, sheep and beautiful horses.

The eco trail starts very near the farm, and you will do this tour on your own.

We suggest you take a picnic with you, and take as long as you feel like!

Leaving the eco trail for a few kms you can visit a lake and cycle along it, or visit a lovely hamlet with traditional architecture.

Our drivers/guides are extremely careful and very knowledgeable, and you will learn a lot about the cork trees, the olive trees and the olive oil along the way.

Arriving at the river we will do some canoeing (don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe!) and, if we are lucky, see some herons, storks or ducks.

On the way back we drop you off in Évora, where you can have lunch and spend the afternoon visiting the lovely city.
