The Douro River courses through north-central Spain and Portugal, weaving through charming riverside towns. Admire the golden valleys, flourishing vineyards and tapestry of olive and almond trees that are the backdrop of a cruise along this famous waterway.
A true highlight is the Douro Valley, home to wine estates, olive groves and farmland. Just before the Douro reaches the ocean, it meets the UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto. Once the very edge of the known world, this classic Portuguese city boasts a vibrant mix of labyrinthine streets and elegant Baroque architecture. Travel along the Douro into the heart of Portugal by rail and cruise.
