Cruising Rio Douro – Portugal

Cruising the Rio Douro

A trip to Portugal would not be complete without a cruise on the Rio Douro. Renowned worldwide for the wine it produces, the Douro valley is graced by its centuries-old vineyards growing on steeply terraced hillsides. It’s a wonderful day’s excursion up the river, through two massive locks, past idyllic villages from Porto to Peso da Régua and return along the northern bank by train.
