Excursions to Portugal (Douro)

Perhaps one of the most popular of our destinations, Portugal is revealed to you over the Douro. Departing from Porto, you will sail from the Atlantic to the heart of the country , the Douro Valley. In fact, the Golden River draws sumptuous curves in the hilly landscape of the centre of the country, where terraced vineyards impose order and architecture to the scenery. The quintas (artisanal vineyards) are, with the picturesque and isolated villages, the only few people living in this landscape as vast and sublime as it is wild.

Our cruises on the Douro, we designed them so that you do not miss any of the most beautiful sites of the country. After having seen Porto by day and by night, you will sail in the lands until you reach Salamanca, the golden city and "Small Rome", a city with immense heritage. On the way, our excursions will have taken you to Guimarães, one of the oldest towns in the country, or to Lamego and its sanctuary connected by no less than 700 steps. For wine lovers, it will also be possible to follow the Wine Route of Porto and enjoy some of the best local produce. You will also see Vila Real and the Manor of Mateus with the magnificent gardens.

Through our excursion you will discover the very identity of Portugal, and dive into the heart of its traditions and the rich heritage it has to offer.
