Douro up-river Cruise (Oporto/Régua/Oporto) on Weekends with a Visit to a Wine Estate

Introduction

Enjoy this cruise ride up the beautiful River Douro to Régua and return by train. You will undoubtedly be amazed at the green shores of this river featuring the well-known Douro vineyards.


Don’t worry how to get to the quay, don’t worry about guessing which boat is the one you should take. On the schedule time, our driver will be at your hotel entrance to take you to your boat on a confortable minivan shuttle..


Your day starts with the departure from Cais de Vila Nova de Gaia where the breakfast will be served on board. Afterwards we’ll go upstream the Crestuma-Lever which is located in the watershed of Douro. Then we have a second dam called Carrapatelo that opened in 1972, by the 13th President of Portuguese Republic, Américo Thomaz. This dam was the first hydroelectric project to be built on the national section of the Douro River and also contains the first navigation lock built in Portugal. After crossing both dam’s you can enjoy the surrounding landscapes while having lunch served on board.


After this relaxing cruise ride you will be taken to a local Wine Estate in Régua Where you will learn more about the winemaking process and enjoy a wine tasting at the end. Return to Porto on a relaxing train trip.


As soon as you arrive at the Train Station in Porto our driver will be waiting to take you back to your Hotel.
