Ride location

PT GT - Portugal Grand Tour map

Flat and rolling stages: Along the Douro valley and the Douro International Park. Great descending towards the big dams across the river and in the Douro International park but not technically difficult.

Mountain and hilly stages: Long climbs to the vantage points alongside the river, they make good challenges for those who wish to push themselves a little harder;

Landscape: A good mixture between the typical wine country landscape of the Douro, the rough nature and car-free roads of the Douro Valley and International park and the urban but traditional city of Porto.
