Douro Valley Bike Tours

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN CYCLING THE DOURO VALLEY

In the north of Portugal lies the beautiful Douro Valley. Carved by the Douro River as it snakes its way towards the coast, the valley is known for gorgeous scenery and the terraced vineyards that lace the hillsides. Our Douro Valley cycling routes are all about experiencing the region to its fullest, with ample wine-tasting opportunities and sightseeing on a leisurely cycle adventure.

Explore the vibrant city of Porto, sitting at the mouth of the river, and bask in its history and culture. There’s so much to see and do here, and of course, there’s equal amounts to taste; every café break requires a pastel de nata pastry as a treat. The most famous product of the region, of course, is Port and you’ll be able to tour and taste the wineries which make this delicious and rich wine.
