Sailing Portugal’s River of Gold with Viking River Cruises
They call it Portugal’s “River of Gold.” The Douro River didn’t merely act a conduit between the Atlantic Ocean and the inner reaches of Portugal – it was a transportation system that enabled the region’s famous port wine production to flourish.
Port wine is produced exclusively in Portugal’s Douro River Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It derives its name from the city of Porto, Portugal – and that’s exactly where we’ll be heading on our next adventure with Viking River Cruises.
Beginning September 29, join us as we arrive in Lisbon for the start of our 10-day Portugal’s River of Gold itinerary that will take us through Portugal and the historic Douro River Valley all the way to Salamanca, Spain – and back.
