Douro & Coa Valley Hike

Douro & Coa Valley Hike
Douro Portugal

Starting in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto, you will venture along the Douro River to the Spanish border by train, surrounded by mesmerising scenery including the amazing Douro Valley and its renowned wine region.
About as far as you can get from the madding crowds, you’ll be staying on a working wine estate and olive farm for the first few days while you explore the dramatic countryside, history and local traditions of the Douro International Natural Park.

In the Côa Valley area, you’ll be staying in a shepherding village and get to visit a local cheese producer. A highlight of the experience is a night visit to the Palaeolithic rock art site on the banks of the Côa River.
You’ll have the opportunity to see remarkable medieval architecture in the small town of Freixo de Espada à Cinta and pass through smaller villages as you make your way along trails that are over a thousand years old.

There are plenty of opportunities to notice how the main crops of grapes, almonds and olives are cultivated in this remote part of Portugal. If you’re lucky enough to do this walking tour in late February or early March, you will see the countryside transformed by the pink and white puffs of almond trees in blossom. You may even catch a festival dedicated to the almond blossoms in Vila Nova de Foz Côa towards the end of your adventure. Wait a little later in the year and you’ll be surrounded by colourful spring flowers.
