Douro Wine Region: UNESCO World Heritage Valley, amazing wines and vineyards
Come and discover the amazing, world-famous winemaking region in the Douro Valley!
Hike up and down the terraced vineyards that Man built from the schistose rocks from the river up to the tops of the hills, delight in the rich regional cuisine, the olive oil and typical produce, and taste the world-famous Port and Douro wines from the region.
During your journey, the magical Douro River will enchant you with breathtaking landscapes, whether you are walking along the riverside or travelling on a river cruiser.
The itinerary begins in Sabrosa, birthplace of Ferdinand Magellan and one of the most emblematic towns in the region.
Walk along trails through superb environments, discover little-known places such as the noble winemaking village of Provesende where you will find the greatest number of manor houses and stately homes in the Douro Region, and Lalim, a stopping place on the Cistercian monks’ wine route.
Pinhão, also on your trip, is a town in the heart of the Douro around which the majority of the finest Port and Douro wine estates are located. Stroll into the train station and admire the hand painted tiles with which it is decorated. Take a trip on the river on one of the typical boats, the Rabelo, on which, in the past, the young wines were shipped downriver to the warehouses in Vila Nova de Gaia, across from Porto. The monumental city of Lamego invites you to discover the local sparkling wine Távora-Varosa.
From there, you will arrive near Régua, the capital city of the Alto Douro Region.
The itinerary offers a range of opportunities to discover Port, Douro and Távora-Varosa wines with tastings at several wine estates, as well as a tasting of the excellent olive oil produced in this region at a local producer’s. A variety of small restaurants invite you to relish the excellent local cuisine and the quality of the produce.
