Douro River Cruises

Sailing past terraced vineyards, old farmhouses and rolling hills, Douro River cruises take in the stunning natural beauty and wine culture of Portugal. Itineraries usually start in Lisbon, where you spend one or more nights before heading up to Porto, on the mouth of the Douro at the Atlantic Ocean, to board your riverboat for an east-west route through the northern part of the country.

In Porto, explore the medieval city center, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Later you'll tour the wine academy at Pinhao, the epicenter of port wine production, and enjoy a glass or two while learning about the production of this sweet dessert wine.

Explore the 14th-century monastery at Alpendurada, perched above the river, and stroll the gardens of the baroque Mateus Palace near Regua. Cross the border and head into Spain to spend a day in Salamanca, one of the country's best-preserved medieval cities; it's also home to one of the world's oldest universities.

River cruise operators negotiate low group rates on hotels, transportation and activities. Tour directors are with you the entire way, taking care of everyday details, while experienced local guides help you get the most out of each stop.
