PRIVATE MULTI DAY TOUR:
Duero River Wine Bike Tour
8 DAYS

DUERO RIVER

SPAIN

8 days, 7 nights, when you decide.

 

Starting in Madrid and finishing in the Port wine capital, Peso da Régua, this 7 night biking holiday takes us through some of the world’s greatest wine regions (Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Toro in Spain and Port wine in Portugal) against a backdrop of dramatic, contrasting landscapes.

 

The Duratón Gorge one of Europe’s largest breeding areas for birds of prey; the Portuguese Coa Valley with one of the largest collections of Paleolithic Cave Art in Europe; the spectacular and rugged Arribes del Duero National Park where olive, almond and orange groves combine with a sanctuary for the golden eagle and the peregrine falcon; and the Almendra Dam one of the largest in Europe.

Impressive wines, excellent local food and comfortable 4 and 5 star hotels including the converted monastery Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena, the Vintage House hotel in Pinhao and the wine hotel Quinta Pacheca. 

 

The trip starts with an introductory walking tour to Madrid and Spain on your first evening, and finishes in Peso da Régua, a 6 hour river cruise or 2 hour train ride away from Porto. Private transport can be arranged along with accommodation and tours on arrival in Porto. Adapted to all levels.
