Join me as I cruise the Douro River with Viking River Cruises.
It's a 10-day trip. You spend a weekend in Lisbon, take a bus to Porto via a stopover in Coimbra and then head out on the beautiful Douro River.
The Douro Valley Wine Region is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. And cruising on the Douro River is a great way to experience it!
April and May
are the best months for visiting. The weather is not too warm and the spring flowers are incredible. It can get hot in the summer.
Viking River boats or longships offer guests comfort, exceptional food and cultural experiences. The rooms are stunning and the size of the actual boat is just right.
There are 5 navigation locks along the Douro River. Each time you go through a lock you have the chance to see the process and it is pretty cool!
Every request was met with a smile!
Port is a world-renowned wine that has been appreciated for centuries. The steep, terraced vineyards along the Douro River have produced some of Europe's best Ports.
But now dry Douro wines can be red, white, or rosé have become very popular and much cheaper alternative to other European wines.
