Douro River Cruises
InformationThe Douro River is one of the relics of Northern Portugal. Wine has been produced by traditional landholders in the Alto Douro region for some 2000 years. Since the 18th century its main product, Porto wine, has been world famous for its quality. This long tradition of viticulture has produced a cultural landscape of outstanding beauty.
We have several options from the “6 bridges” cruise in a traditional rabelo boat, passing under six bridges to admire the old city of Porto, with its typical houses and the hustle and bustle of the Ribeira people, while admiring the architecture of the bridges that connect the two river banks. Or you can go further to the stunning landscapes of Régua, Pinhão, Pocinho and Barca D’Alva to discover the terraced vineyards along the Douro river classified as UNESCO World Heritage.
