The exclusive experiences to be had on Scenic’s Delightful Douro itinerary houses treats for both seasoned explorers and fledgeling adventurers alike. This laid-back river plays host to a series of Scenic Enrich excursions and expert-led Scenic Freechoice activities, including wine tastings, dining opportunities and dance performances.

Following a warm welcome in Porto, the next day’s journey through Régua concludes with a special Scenic Sundowner event. As evening falls, sip cocktails on the terrace of the Douro Museum, surrounded by unbelievable views of Régua’s vineyards.

An oasis of unbelievable food, incomparable architecture, world-famous wineries and a way of life that’s as carefree as it is compelling, a love of the good life awaits, awash with Scenic-curated highlights tailored to each and every guests’ tastes.
