The Douro flows through the wine regions of Spain and Portugal, snaking past vineyards, traditional wineries and charming villages. Sailing through the Douro Valley is like taking a step back in time. This is a rustic region of simple pleasures; perfect for anyone who would enjoy sipping local wines under the warm evening sun, listening to the chirp of crickets and breathing in the fragrant aromas which float by on the light breeze.
But a Douro river cruise isn’t all about sitting around drinking wine, far from it! You’ll explore Porto, the entire centre of which has been designed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its historical significance. The ancient Spanish city of Salamanca is also a delight to explore with its fascinating mix of impressive historic buildings and modern culture.
