Full description
Explore the villages, vineyards, and rivers of the Douro on a 14-hour hiking tour from Oporto.

Your full-day tour starts at Campanhã Train Station in Porto, where you will take the train to Pinhão, a journey of a little more than 2 hours. Considered the best train journey in Portugal, follow the path of the River Douro admiring the marvelous scenery.

Upon arrival at the picturesque train station of Pinhão, with its typical blue tiles, walk to one of the best viewpoints of the Douro Region, traversing the vineyards of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For lunch, stop at the Casal de Loivos viewpoint. From here, wander through vineyards, following old trails, in some cases no longer used to get to the vines. Once back at the valley floor, hike the shores of the River Pinhão to arrive at the mighty Douro, and back to Pinhão.
