About the Activity
One of the best things to do in this region is to end the day watching the sunset, aboard of a beautiful yacht, on an intimate cruise, to the sound of the water gently lapping the bow of the boat, with a flute of sparkling wine or a glass of Port, as we gently glide along the river, flanked by its magnificent 16th and 17th century vineyards and wine estates.

This cruise starts at different times according to the season, usually when the wind dies down and in the evening light, the vineyards show all their splendour.

This is the ideal suggestion for couples looking for a boat trip in the Douro Valley and to have an exclusive and charming experience.

Includes one bottle of wine or sparkling wine per couple and light snacks.

  • Sunset boat ride on the Douro river;
  • Wine or sparkling wine tasting and apéritifs.

Boat Unbelievable

This is a magnificent and elegant ValkVlet 12.30, produced entirely in the Valk Yachts shipyard.

In 1964 Valk Yachts introduced the ValkVlet based on their own design and in collaboration with Th. Gillissen. Among skippers, this received a reputation as the "Rolls Royce" among Dutch cruising boats.

Building on this success, in the decades that followed, the company built several models, ranging in length from 8.50 to 14.30 metres.

Beautifully finished in mahogany and cherry wood inside, the Unbelievable has two double cabins, a galley with dining area and a large lounge, with a command point and a set of glass windows that allows 360º visibility.

The exterior, all in teak, has a large space at the bow and a high, protected area at the stern, which accommodates a second command post.

This boat is ideal for quiet and elegant trips, for groups of two to twelve people, for short stays or several days.
