The Douro

The spectacular wine country scenery makes it such an appealing river. It rises in North Central Spain and flows south west into Northern Portugal emptying into the Atlantic at Porto.

There is only one cruise sailing 130 miles from Porto to Vegade Terron on the border with Spain.

Highlights along the river include the historic town of Guimaraes, the baroque Mateus Palace and Lamego.

Cruises either start or end with an overnight or two in Porto.

Salamanca is a 2 hour drive from Vego de Terron and boasts one of the world's top universities and Grand Plaza Mayor.
