Full description

Being Douro one of the main rivers of the Iberian Peninsula, allow yourself to create unforgettable memories sailing through it, getting the opportunity to behold the vineyards that are well-known for producing Port wine. After departure from Vila Nova de Gaia Quay or Estiva Quay, start your cruise until Pinhão and enjoy the Breakfast that will be served on board.

First, we go upstream the Crestuma-Lever (14 meters high) located in the watershed of Douro making it the last dam to reach the river mouth. After, you will pass through Carrapatelo dam (35 meters high)  that opened in 1972 by the 13th President of Portuguese Republic, Américo Thomaz. This dam contains the first navigation lock built in Portugal for interior navigation.

After passing through both dams, you can enjoy the surrounding landscapes while lunch is served on board.

Before arriving at Pinhão we pass through the last dam: the Régua dam, this time 28 meters high. As soon as you get to Pinhão, you will be given some free time to get to know the region.

Amazinhg Porto pinhao cruise
The porto pinhao boat cruise was fantastic. From the fascinating ascension of the dams to the attention of the escorts from the moment of reception at the beautiful Sao Bento train station with its thousands of hand-painted tiles to the landing in Pinhao. Everything was perfect. Amazing vineyard landscapes that really deserve the Unesco world heritage title.

Porto to pinhao boat experience
We wanted to go from Porto to Pinhão to our hotel and we considered this the most interesting experience because we could bring the suitcases on board and we could also eat an excellent lunch with very good wines and get tanned on the deck surrounded by beautiful landscapes of the Douro Valley

Delightfull Porto to pinhao river cruise
Beautiful landscapes, wonderful food and lots of drinks and a good mood on board. The only downfall is that the return is no longer by train pinhao porto. Still, it is well worth it because I think the most beautiful landscapes in the Douro Valley are from Regua to Pinhao.

Douro cruise porto to pinhao
The day started very early. It was a great idea to add the transfer from the hotel to the pier. Quick, comfortable and they even took the suitcases because we stayed at Pinhao and that's why Living Tours gave us a discount when we contacted in the chat. At the beginning, I confess that we were sleepy because we arrived the night before. But the ascension of the first dam made the adrenaline to skyrocket. Wonderful and scary! Impressive engineering works. The day was very good and sunny, so we were (me, my sister and my mother) some time on the deck, but then the sun got really strong and we decided to go back inside the boat, which is very spacious and comfortable. Shortly after lunch was served. We are vegetarian and Living Tours managed to provide us with a vegetarian lunch. The boat staff was very friendly and almost everyone spoke English so communication was easy. We arrived at Pinhao after passing more impressive dams and the beautiful landscapes of the Douro and the crew even helped us get the suitcases of the boat and into the taxi! Thank you very much :)
