Easy Portugal Silver Coast

Following the coastline from Porto to Figueira da Foz, and later the meanders of the Mondego River towards Coimbra, the Portugal Silver Coast Cycling offers a superb route to discover the natural and cultural treasures of Central Portugal.
 
Starting at Porto, a vibrant city full of history and cultural sites to unveil, the route follows the narrows streets of the old town towards the seaside. It then runs along the golden sandy beaches south of Porto all the way down to the São Jacinto Dune Natural Reserve at the mouth of the Ria de Aveiro.
 
From the narrows streets of the old town the route runs along beautiful beach resorts and small towns giving an insight over the Portuguese culture and live.
 
On the way you’ll cross the São Jacinto Dune Natural Reserve and the Ria de Aveiro, the estuary of the Vouga river which characterizes part of the region arriving at Aveiro City, our little Venice with its channels and moliceiros boats.
 
To the south the route crosses an immense pine forest, making solitude crossing the dunes system one big part of the day, stopping at small beaches to have a drink and watch the sea and contemplate.
 
Finishing in Coimbra, renowned for its century old University and UNESCO old medina area, and academic life.
