This exclusive travel experience has no peer in Europe! Natural Habitat Expeditions has spent more than a decade refining this luxurious ‘soft adventure’ with the families of the Douro River Valley’s historic wine estates. Savor the best in traditional European ambience and cuisine on a Dionysian paddling odyssey between quintas—the vineyard mansions and farmhouses—of northern Portugal’s port wine district. Share warm personal connections with travel hosts and enjoy an inside encounter with contemporary rural life in Portugal. We’ll paddle the mellow river during the sun-drenched days, hike into the hills for fabulous views, then wine and dine at night. As our hosts say, “A sua saude”—to your health!
