If you need to relax and get away from the stress of the routine then you have no reason not to enjoy this program.
You can check in at a four star hotel with spa, jacuzzi, turkish bath and all the elements you need to relax during your stay.
You will have free time to get to know the incredible city of Lamego. Known as the city with more monuments per square meter, you will have a lot to visit.
Lamego is a city rich in history and tradition. One of the best-known sacred places is the Sanctuary of “Nossa Senhora dos Remédios”. Classified as a Property of Public Interest since 1984, go to Lamego and not visit this monument, it’s like “going to Rome and not seeing the Pope”. We challenge you to climb the 686 steps that will lead you to the Church. Enjoy exploring the park that surrounds the steps, a forest area full of green landscapes.
The proximity of Lamego to the borders of the Douro river provides walks where you will have the opportunity to admire the extensive panoramas of valleys where the so famous Porto Wine is created.
In the evening you can have your well-deserved rest and enjoy dinner at the hotel. Regain strength for the next day as it will be a day full of emotions.
Enjoy breakfast in the hotel before leaving for the Régua quay. In one of the most recognized quays of the region will begin your adventure.
The trip starts with an appetizer on board to prepare you to cross the Régua dam. With a difference of 28 meters between the two sides of the river, this is one of the many dams that came to change the course of the Douro river. Enjoy lunch on board before arriving at the village of Pinhão. Here, in the center of the Douro Demarcated Region, you will have some free time to explore and discover small treasures.
We recommend you visit the Pinhão Station, well known for its tiles. Tiles that portray everyday scenes, from winemaking to the the history of Rabelo boats.
Prepare to return to the starting point. You will still have the opportunity to feel the adrenaline rush again to pass the Régua dam.
Enjoy these last moments and remember your trip. Getting to know the Douro region is much more than just a visit. It is the discovery of a unique place, full of history and culture. It is a discovery of traditions and the “people” of the Douro, that make it so special.
