our waterway cruises Portugal

Embark on one of our houseboats for an unforgettable holiday

We await you at our base in Por­to, where you’ll take pos­ses­sion of your cho­sen licence-free boat, guar­an­teed to sat­is­fy all your pref­er­ences. After a quick train­ing ses­sion on how to steer your house­boat, you’ll be able to set off on the waters of the Douro, a riv­er that will take you right into the val­ley of the same name, unveil­ing its wealth of attrac­tions.

Are you able to spare a lit­tle time before embark­ing with your crew ? Enjoy a stroll through the his­toric city of Por­to, which has secured the pride of an entire coun­try. From the Stock Exchange Palace to Cléri­gos Tow­er, Porto’s build­ings tell you this sto­ry by invit­ing you on a real trip back in time. Between your cul­tur­al tour and a refresh­ing break on one of the region’s beach­es, you’ll also have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to wan­der down the pedes­tri­anstreetof San­ta Cata­ri­na, one of the Por­tuguese city’s key com­mer­cial thor­ough­fares.

Your Douro waterway cruise – a journey through Portugal’s wine past

You’ll then be able to sam­ple the joys of water­way tourism, enjoy­ing the slow, sooth­ing rhythm, which will quick­ly make you for­get the stress­es of every­day life. Take in excep­tion­al­ly beau­ti­ful land­scapes as you trav­el through the Douro Val­ley, a UNESCO World Her­itage Site. You’ll nav­i­gate to the heart of over 40,000 hectares of vine­yards, with every stage of your jour­ney giv­ing you the chance to dis­cov­er the fas­ci­nat­ing his­to­ry of one of the old­est appel­la­tions in the world. Port wine has secured the region’s rep­u­ta­tion since 1756. Today, this is a place with its own gen­uine art of liv­ing, so embrace it !
