Discovering the Douro is not merely a matter of getting to know a river – it’s much more! A cruise along the Douro gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a rich and ever changing landscape, to learn about its history, culture and of course it’s renowned wines and Ports!

Meandering through the Douro valley, which is a UNESCO Heritage Site, the river passes terraced vineyards and orchards, whitewashed villages and historical towns, eye-catching gorges, canyons and lakes. You can visit location and landscapes that would otherwise remain inaccessible and have unique holiday experiences such as passing through dams, including the Carrapatelo Dam, one of the biggest locks in Europe, with a change in level of 35m! The most relaxing, romantic and comfortable way to explore this beautiful region cruises can also be combined with on land tours.

 

Mini Cruise of the Six Bridges , Porto

A mini cruise through the heart of Porto to the mouth of the river! A great way to get a feel for a fascinating land and cityscape. During this cruise we will admire the six bridges that connect Porto and V.N. de Gaia. After leaving Estiva wharf we sail along the Ribeira riverside area passing the D. Luís Bridge, the Serra do Pilar Monastery, the Infante Bridge, the D. Maria Pia Bridge, the S. João Bridge and the Freixo Bridge.

Once we reach the S. João Bridge, we turn back in order to fully admire the stunning UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto. Once we have passed the D. Luís Bridge, we navigate a little further, towards the ocean, in order to see the Arrábida Bridge. Here we cannot help but stop and admire the pretty fishermen’s village of Afurada. From  this point, we can see the harbour entrance, as the river and sea merge- two waters that have long played an integral part in this region’s history and culture.
