The Douro is a river that has its source in Spain. Our journey begins at the small village of Paradela that marks the border between Spain and Portugal. A rugged region, with high slopes where the Douro winds between high granitic walls. Downstream of Barca d’Alva, both sides of the river become Portuguese, twisting and turning as large river cruise boats travel the final 130 mile of its course before flowing into the Atlantic Ocean in Porto.
This tour is a blend of trails and tracks that winds through olive groves, vineyards and dusty tracks as we follow the Douro from Paradela to the bright and colourful city of Porto.
