Portugal River Cruises

Sail down Portugal’s scenic Douro River, where rolling hills and terraced vineyards take pride of place along its banks.

Where we sail in Portugal

Our Portugal river cruises run along the Douro, which stretches across the entire north of the country and dips its toe into neighbouring Spain. The whole Douro Valley – which the river runs through – is a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site, and terraced vineyards, wineries and rolling green hills are the norm all the way along the river. All our Portugal river cruises start and finish in the country’s second-biggest city, Porto, and make their way past cosy, scenic villages and towns, like Entre-os-Rios, Barca d’Alva and pretty Pinhao.

Tasty tipples

It’s impossible to miss all the vineyards and whitewashed barrel warehouses along the Douro – the banks of the river are teeming with them. It’s no surprise really, as Portugal’s the only place in the world that can legally produce port wine – an EU protection order’s in place – and the Douro Valley’s at the heart of it. It’s the oldest recognised wine region in the world, and most of the grapes grown here are still harvested by hand.
