Things to do in Douro River

4.5/5 (37)

As it meanders across northern Portugal, the Douro River treats visitors to a variety of treasures to experience from the water. Set sail to explore the breathtaking beauty of the Douro Valley. This UNESCO site is one of the oldest wine regions in the world, famous for producing Port wine. Whether it's a boat tour, river cruise or sailing experience, you’ll be able to take in the scenic landscapes, vineyards and charming villages from a different perspective. As you glide along, look out for traditional ‘Rabelo’ boats making their way across the river too.

River Douro is the third largest River on the Iberian Peninsular and it’s also a great way to see Porto from a unique point of view. Hop on and sail through the city, admiring some of the best monuments and bridges that span the river and make up Porto’s skyline. Look out for the Maria Pia Bridge, São João Bridge and the most famous Dom Luís I Bridge. This impressive double-deck iron bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel's apprentice Théophile Seyrig.

“Not someone who typically takes tours, the two tours we did were excellent both in terms of staff and transportation quality. Highly recommend the tours from a once sceptical day tripper!”
