Douro

Man-carved terraces intersect with the sparkling waters of the Douro River and paint a picture of sublime beauty. Embark on a Douro Acima cruise aboard a “rabelo” boat and discover breathtaking landscapes.
The Douro River is one of the largest rivers in the Iberian Peninsula, the largest river in Portugal, with a total length of almost one thousand kilometers. It is born in Spain, in the mountain range of Urbião, flowing between the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia.
Along its route, the Douro river passes through areas known for the production of wines, cherries and almonds, such as Miranda do Douro, Barca d'Alva, Pinhão and Régua. It is 'cut off' in Spain by three dams and, in national territory, by five: Pocinho, Valeira, Régua, Carrapatelo and Crestuma.
Douro Acima offers two types of cruises: the 6 Bridges Cruise, lasting 50 minutes along the banks of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, and 1 day cruises to the Douro Valley.
