The enchanting Douro River (River of Gold)


Explore the history and charm of northern Portugal on a Douro river cruise.

The Douro River, or the "River of Gold" has been the lifeblood of the region for centuries, providing the highway for travel and commerce through this rugged land. Embark your cruise in the charming city of Porto, a UNESCO World Herritage Site widely known for its production of port wine, vast history and beautiful architecture.

Aboard a relaxing Douro River cruise you will sail by terraced vineyards that climb hundreds of feet above the river valley, past palaces, monasteries and ancient manor houses. Along your Douro River cruise you'll have time to explore some of the beautiful cities along its shores such as Regua, Pinaho, and Barca d'Alva, or opt to take one of the excursions to Vila Real or Salamanca. Each village offers up a surprise for the visitor.

Cruise this historic river from the comfort of a modern, immaculate river ship with an attentive international crew. We have several itineraries that enable you to explore the historic Douro River your way. Daily shore excursions will take you to the most interesting sites or you can choose to explore the cities on your own or relax aboard on the sundeck.
