About the walking trip in Portugal
The city of Porto and the Douro valley go hand in hand with the great wines of Porto. Long stone cellars stand proudly along the river and the rabelo boats that were once used to transport the barrels adorn its banks, a symbol of a golden age and prosperity, largely linked to the international wine trade.
Inland, the Douro valley with its centuries old terraced crops is classified as a World Heritage Site. It is the very first distinctive wine region in the world, from as early as 1756. Its history is carved in the stones of the schist terraces or on the facades of the Quintas, the estates of the Great Wines of Porto.
You visit Porto and the Douro valley on foot, by boat and by train, taking the time to stop and admire, explore, discover and taste... The warm hospitality of Northern Portugal will make your encounters wonderfully authentic and sincere.
A Portugal walking holiday in a region where culture and nature are totally intertwined and tell the same story of an exceptional land.
