Rio Douro by Boat, Bicycle and Train

7 Days Easy

An unforgettable journey up the Douro river, from its mouth in the city of Oporto, with its “Rabelo” boats, to Vila Nova de Foz Côa and to “Alto Douro Wine Region” and in the heart of the Paleolithic Aboriginal Rock Art. We will be using the three means of transportation that best lead us to drink the essence of the river and the region with 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

From the Historical Oporto to the Alto Douro Wine Region, including the Vale do Côa Archaeological Park, all Unesco World Heritages, in a trip through epic sceneries of terraces planted with vineyards, old manors and farms, we will experience a wine tasting from the oldest demarcated wine region of the world. You will have the opportunity to taste some of these world-class quality wines!

We will then cycle into the heart of the most renowned vineyards of Oporto, through amazing hills where the vineyards are planted on terraces to an altitude of 700 meters and that, majestically, dive into the river. We will cross mountains and valleys of terraces with noble vineyards, in humanized landscapes, the perfect result of the communion between Man and Nature throughout the centuries. We open mountain passes, jump over cliffs, from precipice to precipice, in vertiginous surroundings of an uneven and excessive nature that we call Douro River by Boat, Bike & Train…

Quoting the poet Miguel Torga, the writer who most wrote about the Douro and its people, we can see that he said it better than anyone: “The sublimated Doiro. The prodigy of a landscape that ceases to be so in its immensity. It is not a scene that the eyes behold: it is an excess of nature. A virginal universe, as if it had just been born but already eternal by harmony, serenity and silence that not even the river dares to break, either vanishing imperceptible behind the mountains, or astounded in the background reflecting its own wonder. A geological poem. Absolute beauty.
