    Beautiful region, great walks and wine

    The Douro Valley is a spectacular region to discover with stunning views and lovely walks. On either side of the Douro River terraced vineyards cover the landscape - this is the only area in the world where Port wine is produced and on this holiday we learnt about the Portuguese history and culture surrounding the process. Several of our walks ended up at a local Quinta (wine farm) where we had the opportunity for wine tasting with a lunch on the terrace which everyone enjoyed. It was a very relaxing and interesting week of walking, with varied routes each day. We barely saw another walker on any of the routes so it felt as though we had the region to ourselves!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I really enjoyed the Levada do Piscaredo walk on Day 7 - it was the longest walk that we did but fairly easy walking (no hills), following a waterway dating back to the 13th century. Pretty wildflowers dotted the route and every now and then the views of the river below would come into sight.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Nuno was great, a keen walker and outdoor enthusiast, he knew the routes inside out and was great company, introducing the group to local restaurants.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Try the Vinho Verde (green wine) - this was my favourite!

    A Great Experience!

    This was a beautiful setting for a gentle walking holiday, wooded valleys, streams and rivers and abundant wild flowers. We had quite varied walks, sometimes calling on small vineyards where a delicious lunch awaited, alongside a wine-tasting! We stayed in beautiful hotels and had time enough built in to enjoy their facilities.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    To manage a slightly more strenuous walk and arrive, out of breath, at the viewpoint over a magnificent waterfall!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our leader was extremely knowledgeable about the area, very experienced with the walks and trails and very well organised. He was also very charming, so we all enjoyed his company through the week. He got to know us as a group quite quickly and was able to adapt the itineraries where necessary.
