On the first day you’ll explore Douro’s riverbanks, then taking a detour into the interior where you’ll find challenging but beautiful mountainous paths and typical remote villages, with picturesque houses, where time seems to have stood still a long time ago. Portuguese are known for excellent food and meat lovers will certainly enjoy the famous, delicious and protected Arouquesa meat. If you opt for the off-road, you’ll be unveiling the astonishing mountain range of Serra da Freita, and visiting its schist and slate villages and terraced plantations. This area is also a Geopark habitat for several species of birds of prey. You’ll also visit granite villages and enter Medieval, Gothic worlds while discovering the 12th century (XII) patrimony. After riding some of the highest roads in Portugal you’ll later re-encounter the Douro, for a remarkable Port wine tasting experience.
Starting the second day at Peso da Régua - a city that owes its origin and fame to the relevant role it had in the development of the region and in the history of Port wine – you’ll be taking the road Régua – Pinhão, considered by experts as the best road in the world, in an index that combines the types of curves and the surrounding landscape. Arriving at Pinhão, you’ll be visiting vineyards of the noblest grape varieties in the world, enjoying unique bucolic sceneries, and exploring castles that belonged to Muslims a long time ago. Opting by the off-road alternative, you’ll discover traces of Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic civilizations, and appreciate figures dated from 22,000 to 10,000 years B.C. in the Foz Côa area. At the end of the day, you’ll have the chance to relax quietly in a hotel where serenity is the absolute keyword.
The third day starts with the crossing of the Brava Beach Reserve, which is the first private protected area in the country, and, also currently pilot of the European project “Rewilding Europe”. This project aims to protect wild horses, Iberian wolves, and a lot of other endangered species that inhabit the area. Next, you’ll be visiting strategically positioned castles that were built at almost 1000 meters of altitudes, by order of D. Afonso Henriques the founder and first king of Portugal. All the great viewpoints and sights along the way and the delicious traditional cuisine from Trás-os- Montes will surely delight you. Ridding along beautiful olive groves and almond tree fields that turn the road completely pink wondering anyone that passes by will also be an unforgettable experience.
The fourth day will start amongst the astonishing plains and cliffs alongside Douro River, most particularly, discovering the dramatic beautiful curves of a section of the river that is called International Douro - as this is the natural border between Portugal and Spain. Ridding from a great viewpoint to another, in some points, you will feel like you are leaning above the vast and stunning sights of Douro’s river valley. Then, after all this, you will still have the chance to visit some of the first river dams ever built in Portugal and to cross the river, setting foot on Spanish soil, where the Douro river is born.

Nevertheless, the very best of this tour is that you will have the opportunity to truly explore and appreciate up-close the best of both Porto and Douro... The hillsides and wineries where Port and some of the world’s greatest wines have been produced for the last 2000 years, and the imponent city at Douro River's mouth where the wines are stored for aging in the world-famous Port Wine cellars. Considered top Romantic European destinations they are both parts of what we think is the most beautiful wine region in the world.
One of the oldest cities in Europe, but at the same time buzzing with trendy new and up to the minute cool places, Porto will certainly pleasantly surprise you for the hospitality of its people, and you will fall deeply in love with the worldwide famous riverbank views, the exciting cultural and nightlife scene, and of course, the marvelous gastronomy, always accompanied with outstanding wines. Porto is a World Heritage city, that serves as the gateway and departure point for an unforgettable journey across the natural and cultural diversity of Porto and the Douro Valley region.
The Douro Valley, also known amongst tourists as the enchanted valley, was the first place in the world to become a certified wine region and was also classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, in 2001. The Douro is not only a place with an unmatched natural beauty where the River carefully carved its way, preparing the terroir for its locals to craft its beautifully designed terraced vineyard slopes and century-old schist houses and paths. It is also a region filled with historic value that oozes an almost mystical feeling of grandeur.
The scenic trails and views, the secret places where some of the world’s most famous wines are made, the secret roads to ride, the typical picturesque villages and small towns, usually off the charts, where time seems to have stood still. All of this will make this tour one of the best experiences of your lifetime.
