Well known for their deliciously sweet Ports, today the vineyards of the Douro Valley also boast a growing reputation for producing fabulous red and white wines, which have put this stunning region of Portugal firmly on any connoisseur’s map. Stretching from Porto to the Spanish border, this enchanting UNESCO World Heritage Site is a haven of hillsides, with steep terraced vineyards, lush greenery as far as the eye can see, and of course, the mighty Douro River. Traverse this rich landscape by train while enjoying picturesque views through the carriage windows, or take a boat trip down the river, passing pretty, whitewashed villages along the way. Make the most of the outdoors with activities like fishing and hiking, or simply relax on the veranda of a remote quinta while sampling the region’s wines and basking in the views.
