Douro River Voyage-Culture, Cuisine & Wine

Douro River Voyage-Culture, Cuisine & Wine



The romantic Douro River winds through northern Portugal, creating a landscape of sculpted hills and terraced vineyards. Cruise from medieval Barca d’Alva to Porto, a delightful mosaic of scarlet and gold architecture. Pass by storybook villages and pastoral countryside while gliding through one of Europe’s most unspoiled regions. Taste locally produced olives, almonds, breads, and cheeses, and of course, port—the famous sweet, fortified wine for which the area is known. Along the way, learn about the Alto Douro’s winemaking history, witness beautiful Portuguese tile artwork, and explore charming villages with stories to share.
