Sail the twists and turns of Douro Valley in Portugal

Font Size:

Imagine waking up to the sun rising over a working vineyard in Portugal’s Douro Valley. Then see yourself sailing along the Douro River and being treated to sumptuous food and some of the best wine in the world. Now make that dream come true … 

At Porto, you’ll board a luxury river cruise ship and enjoy a stunning sunset and the romance of the softly lit landscape before you settle in for the night.

You’ll visit UNESCO world heritage sites, be privy to exclusive showcases of wine history and culture, take part in cooking classes, paint your own mosaic tiles, plus stretch and relax with free yoga lessons during the day, and indulge in nightly cocktails and highlight dinners. Visit marvellous baroque villages and hike though vineyards. Encounter a mix of modern and ancient architecture and meander through museums, historic townships and havens, such as Our Lady of Remedies Sanctuary in Lamego.

Step over the border and into Spain’s Salamanca, the site of one of the world’s oldest universities. Take a tour of the grand squares and medieval masterpieces, experience the buzz and hum of the city’s history and let Spanish music fill your ears. This is one river cruise that you have to add to your bucket list.

The Secrets of the Douro river cruise is booking fast, and no wonder when you see all that you can do in eight amazing days sailing through northern Portugal.
