Explore the charms of Portugal by river

An unforgettable Douro River cruise through Portugal’s sun-drenched vineyards, stunning landscapes, and charming villages, offers the perfect blend of relaxation, traditions, and delicious cuisine.
A symbol of Portugal’s birth and growth as a nation, the Douro has long been the country’s lifeline. Leaving the pastel-coloured metropolis of Porto, venture through the enchanting countryside. Terraced vineyards rise from the river banks, historic landmarks pepper distant horizons and charming townships lay hidden in the rural hillsides. Salamanca shines both day and night and a kayak experience in Pinhão provides a new perspective on the Douro. Your journey concludes with a two-night stay in the sun-kissed Spanish capital, Madrid
