Flowing through Northern Portugal from Spain, the Douro River cuts a dramatic swathe through the Douro Valley, traversing a spectacularly beautiful region. You will be treated to enchanting landscapes, local culinary delights, port and wine tastings and tales of a fascinating history and culture.
Portugal was the world’s first global empire, expanding across the planet during the 15th and 16th centuries and its influence can still be felt across dozens of countries today. Step into history itself and immerse yourself in timeless villages, terraced landscapes, family-run quintas (estates) and hilltop wine estates scattered amongst the hills.
As your Scenic Space-Ship weaves through the undulating hillside curves of the beautiful Douro Valley you’ll be treated to enchanting landscapes, rich cultures and all the produce of the wine country.
With four World Heritage-listed sites - the Alto Douro, the Historic Centre of Porto, the old city of Salamanca and the prehistoric rock art sites of the Côa Valley, a Scenic Douro river cruise is nothing short of spectacular.
Discover magnificent Porto on a Douro river cruise through Portugal. Visit the port wine cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia, encounter the archaeological heritage of the Vale do Côa, and wander through the vertiginous granite terraced vineyards of the Alto Douro.
