STAGE 2

VISEU - PEDROGAO

150km | 2,400m+

Start 09:30

Cut Off 17:00

DÃO VALLEYS

An athlete’s breakfast (specially prepared by each hotel) will help fuel a day of thrilling climbs and descents.

As soon as you have negotiated the cobbled streets out of Viseu, the N2 begins to wind its way through the villages and vineyards of the famous Dao wine making region.

Every twist and turn of this iconic road reveals a rural landscape of sleepy hamlets and a diverse patchwork of market gardens. This stage is punctuated by Col’ de Gois, in the foothills of Serra da Estrela. A 16km ascent through the mimosa woods to the summit at 775m.

The exhilarating descent is as rewarding as the climb but you’ll need to conserve a little energy for the final short climb to the hotel and its spectacular view over the Cabril Reservoir.
