Rustic treasures await on the passage of the Douro River. Travelling from Porto on an 8-day roundtrip, discover fine wine, delicious home-grown fare, and historic locales, and grow accustomed to the leisurely pace of life on the banks of this timeless waterway.

Sailing east against the current of the Douro, arrive in Vega de Terron, where you can tour the Baroque town of Lamego or visit Mateus Palace, world-renowned for its delicious rosé wines. Passing the Vinhateiro wine region, spend the day in the historic city of Salamanca, marvelling at the World Heritage-listed sites of Plaza Mayor and Universidad de Salamanca.

In the evening, you’re invited to a special Scenic Enrich encounter in São Francisco Church, where you’ll savour a private concert amid truly wondrous surroundings.

Your final day brings you back to Porto, where you’ll visit the Palacio da Bolsa, a World Heritage-listed site. There’s also time to indulge in a tasting at the fairy-tale Quinta Aveleda, a world-renowned producer of Portuguese sparkling wine.
