Experience

Highlights
  • Sail on a traditional Douro river boat
  • Enjoy the quietness of the valley
  • Admire the UNESCO world heritage site
Full description
Navigate on a unique river, in the heart of the oldest wine demarcated region in the world and also a UNESCO world heritage site.

You start from Pinhão, pass under the Eiffel iron bridge going up stream until the Roncão area where you turn around and return to Pinhão.

Along the way you’ll see hills of terraced vineyards until the river, with no national roads or traffic in sight. Although you do the same stretch up and down, it could very well be a different one, because seeing it in one direction and then on the other creates two completely different points of view and sights. The traditional rabelo boats have open and closed areas, so navigation can be comfortably made in all kinds of weather, all year long.
Includes
  • Rabelo boat tour
  • Downloadable audioguide app in five different languages on your smartphone (available on Play Store and Apple Store)
