Portuguese way of St. James

To reach the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, there are several routes from France, Spain, and Portugal. The route we recommend is the Portuguese way of St. James, although most people choose to walk on it, it is also a great option for those who like to cycling, as is the case! Although considered a pilgrimage route, many who do not consider themselves Catholic feel the appeal of this challenge that implicitly involves a spiritual component. This is undoubtedly a journey through the centuries that continues to arouse fascination all over the world. Get to know the complete bike itinerary from Porto!

Levadas, Madeira Island

Levadas are one of Madeira's main tourist attractions, offering direct contact with practically untouched nature. If you are unfamiliar with the term “levadas”, understand that they were originally created to carry water from the north of the island (where there is a wetter climate) to the south (where the climate is drier). Nowadays, its main function is to show the beauty of Madeira to its visitors. These waterways can only be explored by foot or bike.
