Hot off the press....once again, we are an Official Tour Operator for the Ride Across Portugal 2024 Cycling Challenge. To support the already superb in-house package that the Ride Across Portugal team deliver Alpcycles will again have 2 guides on the road with our guests for the week.

Fora de serie........exceptional

It's the only way to describe this 6 Stage event. Taking part in this truly unique cycling experience you will quite literally "ride across Portugal" from north to south, from the mountains to the coast. The 2023 edition covered 810km with 9,900m of climbing over 6 stages from hotel door to hotel door, which is a real treat. Our riders fell in love with this amazing country both on and off the bike: the roads & rider support, 4/5* hotels & food, people & culture wrapped up in the RAP teams passion for their country are undeniable. With rider numbers limited for the event riders will feel that personal touch from start to finish.
