About the Activity
Welcome aboard! The Arraes awaits you at the Douro Marina in the heart of the fishing village of Afurada in Vila Nova de Gaia, on the opposite side of Porto, with the mouth of the Douro River in sight.

Discover the Douro River from the Douro Marina to the Gramido in this 1-day tour.

The Palace, is the one of the Freixo, the imposing Baroque and the first work of an unavoidable name of the city of the Port: Nicolau Nasoni.

The table is the one of the Palatium of the responsibility of Chef Tony Salgado, in one of the beautiful rooms of the Palace deeply coloured.

The romantic gardens are those of the Quinta Villar D'Allen, a pearl to be discovered and one of the few estates of the 19th century in the city, still in the possession of the same family.

With a view of the city surmounted by the Torre dos Clérigos (the most emblematic work of the Italian artist), we followed the river up to Gramido with a Port Wine.

After we will eat at Palácio do Freixo.

Vessel: The Arraes

Model Valkvlet designed by Th. Gillissen, built in the Netherlands in 1978 by Van der Valk, has for the last 15 years been owned by a Dutch couple who, once retired, sailed every year during the summer months through various rivers and canals in Europe, especially in France.

Now in the Douro River, it was renamed Arraes, a simple homage to the men who, during almost two centuries, crossed the Douro River in command of the Rabelo Boats, overcoming the obstacles, the aggressiveness and the often fatal dangers of a river still not tamed by dams, and few of them remember.
