Hiking in Douro Valley

Europe > Portugal > Douro Valley

This experience is a walking tour through the vineyards, olive grove, almond trees and pines (to give us a bit of shade!) of the Douro. At the end of the walk, have a picnic with homemade food and local products: homemade bread, smoked pork, cheese, jams and, of course, Douro red wine

It is a walk along old paths of the Douro, used by locals to move to the grounds or to go to the fairs in search of provisions. Some sections still retain their original shape. In this experience, it will be possible to observe the village of Pinhão from different perspectives and understand that life in the Douro Valley is about working in vineyards, olive grove and almond trees.
