Discover The Secrets of The Tagus River by Bicycle.


In this tour we’ll cycle through lesser-known places, outside the normal circuits of those who live in Lisbon and also of those who visit us - we'll go up the Tagus River.

We’ll start in Park of Nations, where we’ll find some of the most modern buildings in the city. we’ll pass by the Oceanarium, the Pavilion of Portugal in Expo 98, the Altice Arena and we will take a picture next to the new street art work made by Bordalo II, The Iberian Lynx, with 6-meter-high, made with recycled material.

The Vasco da Gama Bridge, at the end of Park of Nations, is the frontier for a new reality. Here the landscape starts to be very different, the area of the Tagus Estuary begins, a place where we’ll stop to try to observe and photograph a flamingo’s colonie (they usualy there).

We’ll pass through Sacavém and along the trail of the Pilgrin's Route to Fátima (Caminhos de Fátima), we’ll go through the agricultural area on the bank of the River Trancão until we reach Póvoa de Santa Iria. Here, once again we'll meet Tagus River.

In this small village lives a community of traditional fishermen, very old, who are called Avieiros. Avieiros are very simple people who live from traditional fishing done in small boats with original shapes and very colorful.

From here, the Tagus River offers us wonderful landscapes, an immense diversity of birds and a very unique vegetation, we’ll be cycling over wooden walkways, until we reach Alhandra and Vila Franca, the last stop of our tour.

Vila Franca de Xira was a small village, which lived from river fishing and agriculture. It was and still is a land where there are many bulls and horses and where today there is a culture associated with bullfighting.

In the end of the tour we'll have a picnic.

The return to Lisboa will be made by car or by train.
