This is one of Europe’s most beautiful and unspoiled rivers. From its source in the Serra de Urbión mountains, the Douro flows through Spain and crosses the border into Portugal, where the pace slows as it makes its way to Porto on the Atlantic coast.

Much of the valley has nurtured vineyards for over 2,000 years and it is here that port wine was first produced. This history and tradition led UNESCO to bestow World Heritage status on an outstanding 24,600 hectares, and today the region is also known for its unfortified wines, both red and white. Wines aside, the rustic landscape combined with the other treasures that line the banks make the Douroan ideal river for a relaxing cruise, with around 124 glorious miles to explore.
