Guided tour to the Archeological Park of the Côa Valley, classified as UNESCO World Heritage site in 1998. The park has the largest known open-air collection of Paleolithic rock art. You will visit the award winning museum and discover a magnificent place near the wild Côa River, a tributary of the Douro, where you will have the  opportunity to observe authentic artistic manifestations that are engraved in stones that are over 25,000 years old.

Private boat ride for 4 hours, through one of the finest and most peaceful areas of the Douro River, where you will be able to dive in, and hopefully, see a golden eagle. You will also have the chance to see the site where the mythical Baron of Forrester drowned. Then you will have lunch near the river in a place that only the locals know.

Visit to the exclusive vineyards that made Douro wines reach the highest level of quality in the world, such as Quinta da Erva Moira or Quinta do Vale Meão (where the most iconic Portuguese wine was created: Barca Velha), and experience a tasting of the most representative wines of Douro Superior.

Visit secular viewpoints like the Santuário de S. Salvador do Mundo or Srºa do Viso, and be amazed by the astonishing views Douro Superior has to offer.

A journey in time visiting castles older than Portugal or the ruins of ancient Roman villages, where you will see for yourself that wine production has been taking place there for about 2000 years.

Take rest at night in incredible locations that are part of Portuguese traditions and live an unforgettable experience. Be it luxurious wine resorts or authentic family wine-producing farms, the choice is yours.
