Riviera Douro

Riviera Travel River Cruises on the Douro

The Douro flows from northern-central Spain to the sea at Porto. When sailors first began to use the Douro to transport Port wine their traditional boats often capsized in the tumultuous waters. However, today the river is an entirely different beast, tamed by a series of locks which have made the river a calm place to enjoy a relaxing river cruise.

The banks of the Douro remain as enchanting as ever, with their steep cliffs, lush greenery and hillsides dotted with vineyards and olive groves. This breath-taking scenery combines with the warm air, fragrant breeze and background chatter of chirping crickets to create the most relaxing of atmospheres. Add a little wine, for which this region is famous, and you have yourself a perfect evening on-board.

Riviera Travel have been offering river cruises for over 30 years and have all the experience needed to guide you along your journey on the Douro. With a dedicated tour manager and expert guides, you’ll learn much about the history of Spain and Portugal. The facilities on-board are akin to those of a five-star hotel, offering everything you could need and excellent service. All meals are included, as is travel and transfers to start your cruise.
