And More about Porto and the Douro
The Douro flows from its source in the Soria Province of Spain, through 897km of the Iberian peninsula to reach the Atlantic at Porto. If you wish to take a river trip there are a variety of options, ranging from 1 hour long excursions taking in central Porto and the six bridges, to longer cruises into the heart of the Douro wine-producing countryside lasting several days.
Also available from the river are Port wines tours. Some are included here.
