  •   Marly is an extraordinary company with attention to every detail. There are probably many dozens of Camino outfitters in Spain, and Marly stands alone, setting an exceptionally high bar for quality, service, and value. Marly truly cares about each pilgrim and that shows in their...More

Fall in love with the Douro valley (Porto) on a 2-day incredible getaway

The Douro Valley is a wonderful option to disconnect and rest peacefully on the shores of one of the most magical landscapes of the Peninsula.

The hotels in the area are carefully designed for comfort and rest. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most exclusive places to stay in Portugal! You cannot reject this opportunity.

During the first day we will visit different fifths or quintas, the local name for calling the impressive estate houses where the vines are carefully cultivated, in the form of terraces that fall elegantly towards the crystaline waters of the Portuguese Douro.

After enjoying the yummy local gastronomy in an outstanding restaurant, we will end the day with one of the key activities of the area: a pleasant one-hour cruise will take us to enjoy from another perspective the sickles of the river as it passes through the interior of Portugal. A beautiful and relaxed way to enjoy a day full of emotions.

You will enjoy a farewell dinner to discover the foodie side of this beautiful Portuguese corner.
