Douro cruise Porto to Regua (Sundays)- Train upstream and Boat downstream
The Douro river Cruise became a 'must' to those visiting Porto and the Douro Valley. Running from Spain to Porto in Portugal, the river's total length reaches almost 898 kms but only sections of the Portuguese extension are navigable.
During its journey, the boat is raised by a series of locks. The locks and dams were built to tame the once dangerous river.
The river runs across the Douro wine demarcated region, the first region of this kind to be created in the world. Its long wine producing tradition, originated an unique landscape deeply linked to the local economy and social activity. Its importance granted the area UNESCO World Heritage status in 2001.
