Douro Valley Walking Tour

Oct 08-18, 2020

11 days | Portugal | Alumni Expeditions

Immerse yourself in some of the most picture-perfect landscapes in all of Europe as you walk through the dramatically beautiful scenery of the Rio Douro. Traverse by foot the terraced vineyards, hilltop wine estates, olive groves, pine forests, and postcard-pretty villages for a magical experience.

This trip is fully escorted; however, you are free to walk at your own pace and in your own time. Your route is carefully designed for easy to manage walks of 13 – 17 kilometres per day. You will be equipped with maps, directions, and instructions to guide you. You only need carry a lightweight day bag with your water supply (which can be replenished in the various villages on route) and essentials.

On some days, you’ll walk from one village to the next; other days you’ll enjoy circular walks from home base. And what a lovely base it is! To complement the serenity and magnificent countryside you’ll be walking through, you’ll enjoy charming, comfortable accommodation with private facilities. At the end of each day, enjoy traditional meals and pure bliss in a bottle as you sample the luscious port, robust reds, and dry whites of the Douro. This trip begins and ends in vibrant Porto.

Vines will be bursting with grapes in the Douro vineyards as beautiful autumn colours tint the leaves. Take the slow road and experience the splendid panoramas of the Douro Valley, one step at a time.
