Douro Valley self guided walking vacation in Portugal

Walk the drunken curves of the Douro Valley on this relaxed walking vacation, with plenty of wine tastings thrown in. It makes sense to start the vacation in Porto – not just because it’s a beautiful city, but because this is the end point of the Douro river itself, before it flows into the sea. A train or boat upstream eventually leads you into the Douro valley itself, where the walking can begin. This is a moderate walking vacation. Your walking routes, on unpaved and sometimes rugged tracks, range from three to 10 miles long, with some climbs, but the hiking can be tailored to your energy levels. Too tired for a hill? A taxi can replace part of the trail. As you walk you’ll discover why ...Read more >
