Rolling hills covered in pretty coloured vines, quality villages steeped in history and tradition and the highlight is a visit to the hidden gem of a town Salamanca in north-western Spain. The Mateus Palace is also something not to be missed when on this wonderful cruise.
The River Douro, rising in Spain and reaching the Atlantic Ocean in Porto, has created a valley of spectacular beauty with hills falling steeply down to the water’s edge and stone terraces built to give the vines a sheltered hold on the steep rocks. This is Port country, the first and oldest wine region in the world. Enjoy the privilege of seeing this pristine and remote river valley the best possible way, on a Douro Valley River Cruise.
