Douro Valley Bike Tours

Portugal’s Douro Valley has been made famous by Port wine and designated with UNESCO World Heritage status, but there’s an emerging wine revolution and a tendency towards luxury that’s contributing to its rising reputation. What’s wonderful about Northern Portugal is how wine shapes the scenery—during a thrilling descent to the Douro River via vineyard-wrapped hills or in the chameleon-like landscape of Lamego where vines shift colors with the seasons.

The Douro Valley tells a proud origin story: Portugal’s proclamation of independence is written in the walls of historic Guimarães, ancient granite hamlets are a fixture in the Trás-Os-Montes region, and ubiquitous egg-yolk pastries nod to the resourceful nuns who inhabited the countryside. On a bike tour of Portugal, your cup will overflow with history, culture, and cuisine, and you’ll share in the love that locals so clearly have for their home.
