Explore a range of beautiful villages, striking cathedrals, magical palace and energised cities on a cruise along the Douro River. The Douro flows through Portugal and Central Spain for almost 900 km, meandering past stunning views. The UNESCO-listed valley ensures that this is one of Europe’s most beautiful rivers, and the Douro is used for both irrigation and hydroelectric power.
Visit vineyards and lemon groves in the rural villages of Portugal, or wander through the historic city of Porto where the river meets the Atlantic Ocean. Choose to traverse lively cities and immerse yourself in the culture of Spain and Portugal, as you sample copious amounts of port wine and discover local history by exploring the centuries-old castles and forts.
A river cruise is the ideal way to admire the hidden and not so hidden beauties of this region at a relaxing pace for a tranquil and memorable experience.
