This is the main growing region for Portugal’s port wine production. Lovely cliff side terrace farms of grape vineyards can be seen by boat floating down the Douro. Awesome sight and winery tour experience.

A lovely region along the Douro River for exploring by walking, cycling, or driving and lots of wine, Port and olive oil tasting opportunities.

We cruised the Douro and were able to appreciate the beauty together with the economic importance of the river and the agriculture that surrounds it.
