DOURO RIVER CRUISES
This extraordinary river in Portugal and Spain will take you to new treasures!

A river cruise down Portugal's& Douro River is simply spectacular. In fact it is so stunning that the entire Douro River Valley has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Douro River cruises have it all: mile after mile of vineyards lining the steep hills overlooking the river; small, picturesque towns and quaint villages that line the banks of the river; quintas, the traditional wine farms, many of which have been converted to upscale bed and breakfast getaways, clinging to the almost vertical slopes; and a beauty and serenity that make this Europe’s most unspoiled and least traveled river valley. View all Douro River cruises in the cruisGENIE™ Cruise Chart below.

The Douro River itself begins in the mountains of Northern Spain and flows westward for about 550 miles through Spain and Portugal before it enters the Atlantic Ocean at Porto. For part of its length it actually serves as the border between the two countries. For river cruise purposes, the only navigable section of the river lies almost totally in Portugal.

Before we continue let’s clear up one item that continually confuses people. A Douro River cruise does not, I repeat, does not spend any significant amount of cruising in Spain. The cruise companies that promote and market Douro River cruises always mention Spain but the truth is the only time the cruise ship will be in Spain is when you dock at the tiny, tiny town of Vega de Terrón, located just across the river from the Portuguese town of Barca D’Alva, — and this is really for operational purposes as it is from here that cruise passengers leave for their overland tour to Salamanca, Spain.

A river cruise on the Douro is the perfect blend of sightseeing, cruising, and relaxing. It may be my most favorite itinerary for all river cruises. It is a 130 mile journey through a landscape quite different from what you will experience on any other river cruise journey in Europe. The panoramic visits from the sun deck of your river cruise ship will provide extraordinary photo opportunities. This is a cruise that if you are into landscape and travel photography you’ll want to bring along a lightweight tripod.
