Day-by-day

Day 1 - Miranda do Douro
On your way from Porto airport to Miranda do Douro, enjoy the beautiful landscape that emerges, like a painting of green trees and grey and brown rocks, of hills and mountains, under a pleasant blue sky. The Douro River cliffs over 200 metres high also offer a fascinating view. The small town of Miranda do Douro, with its typical whitewashed houses of Roman origin and narrow stone streets, is worth an exploratory walk.

Day 2 - Stage 1- Miranda do Douro to Mogadouro
The first stage of your biking tour takes you through the International Douro Nature Reserve, a gentle highland plateau known for its wilderness and landscapes. The stretch you shall cycle will take you across a quiet land, populated by over 170 species of birds, wild boar and Iberian wolf. Even the goats and cattle make little noise. In the sky overhead, you may see an Egyptian vulture or a Bonelli's eagle.
Dinner included.

Day 3 - Stage 2 – Mogadouro to Torre de Moncorvo
Today’s tour takes you along a former railway line. The ecotrail runs past forests, across fields, a typical agricultural landscape and a few scattered woods. Although the shepherds you meet may not speak your language, they are extremely friendly and happy to pose for photos. Continue along olive and almond groves until you reach medieval Torre de Moncorvo, the capital of the almond blossom festival. You will be warmly greeted by your host of an elegant historical manor house, who takes great pride in the accommodation he presents. You will taste their delicious homemade liqueurs, which combine beautifully with the almonds of Moncorvo.

Day 4 - Stage 3 – Torre de Moncorvo to Vila Flor
On day 4, you will cycle alongside the Douro river for the first time. Prepare yourself for stunning views and a magical landscape.

On this evening, you will stay on a property that produce traditional and organic olive oil. You will be able to taste some of the finest local cuisine for dinner – homemade cheeses, cured meats, baked bread and olive oil, home-grown oranges and homemade wine. Take the opportunity to see the stars which are even more beautiful in this tranquility.

Day 5 - Stage 4 – Vila Flôr to Sabrosa
The Alto Douro Wine Region is famous for its wines. First and foremost is Port wine, but the region also produces prize-winning red wines from the Touriga grape. The terraced vineyards, so typical of the region that is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, were carved by men from the hillsides. The neatly-kept wineries, rise proudly amidst the vineyards, their names clearly visible to everyone who passes. When you arrive at the river’s edge, load your bike on a Rabelo boat and enjoy the trip to Pinhão, the next stop, around which most of the famous Port wine estates are located.  Don’t forget to visit the beautifully-tiled train station. The seventeenth-century house where you will spend the night is located on the hillside above the town and has magnificent views.

Boat cruise and transfer from final location to the accommodation included.

Day 6 - Stage 5 – Sabrosa to Peso da Régua
The last stage of your biking tour begins with a trail that takes you along the back roads of the Douro Valley and then a gentle cycle path back to the riverside with views that are nothing less than breathtaking, as if the Douro Valley wants to ensure that you will never forget its magic after you leave.
At the end of the day, you will arrive in Peso da Régua, the centre of the Port wine-growing region and the capital of the Douro district. The owner of one of the wine states will welcome you with fine wine on the terrace and at your last dinner, you can share a culinary experience with him.
