The Douro Valley is home to the River Douro, the third largest river in the Iberian Peninsula. The Douro River and the Douro Valley are known primarily for Port, a sweet wine that has been produced here for two thousand years, along with less well-known red and white table wines. The upper Douro, also known as the Douro Vinhateiro is dominated by big placards on the hillsides bearing the names of famous Port producers such as Cockburns, Taylors, and Sandeman. The spectacular landscape is characterized by improbably steep terraces covered in vines and dotted with wine-producing farms called Quintas. Hills fall steeply to the water's edge and the region becomes more and more sparsely populated as it travels inland from the coast. Locally smoked hams and spicy sausages are often on the menu and many of the Quintas offer wine tasting sessions, paired with the Portuguese delicacies.

Now what's is better than a fantastic bespoke trip to this unique and marvelous place? Enjoy and uncover these amazing hand-picked experiences, that will immerse you in some of the Douro's most secret places full of authentic experiences.  And because we don’t do anything off the shelf, your hand-crafted journey will always be one-of-a-kind.
