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 2024 edition covered 810km with 9,900m of climbing over 6 stages from hotel door to hotel door, which is a real treat. Every year that we take take part, our riders fall 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 team's passion for their country are undeniable. With rider numbers limited for the event, you will feel that personal touch from start to finish.
