Pleasures of Portugal

In 2018 why not immerse yourself in some of the most spectacular and scenic walking countryside in all of Europe? This tour company wants their guests to enjoy delicious and mouth-watering traditional cuisine along the way - and savour the pleasures of the very best local and regional wines, as they walk the path less travelled in Portugal's Douro Valley.

To complement the serenity and picture-perfect countryside, the company has carefully selected boutique accommodation for its authenticity and uniqueness to provide a sanctuary of comfort and ideal location at the end of each day.

Starting in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Porto, you will experience all that this fascinating and vibrant city has to offer. 

From Porto, it’s only a short hop to the quaint village of Pinhao, where we start the walk. Along the way, we spend time at some of the vineyards that have claimed many international awards.

The sheer beauty of the valley landscape and the tranquility and striking colours of the endless vineyards surrounding the Douro River (which means River of Gold) are simply breathtaking. Due to popular demand and following the success of a nine-day walking trip in 2017, a second trip is planned for 2018.

Authentic and comfortable accommodation is chosen, and itineraries are focused on immersing travellers in the local culture and uncovering the hidden gems of a destination'.
