Northern Portugal

Porto, Douro Valley, Coimbra, & Beyond

Catch the views of the city of Porto as you walk along the Dom Luís I Bridge or take a river cruise through the UNESCO wine region of the Douro Valley. Northern Portugal offers something for everyone from Guimarãres, known as the birthplace of Portugal, to the natural landscapes of Peneda-Gerês National Park, or a visit to one of the oldest universities in the world in Coimbra.

When not exploring, tantalize your tastebuds with pastel de nata, a sweet treat native to Portugal, or sip on a locally made port wine. Between the well-preserved medieval towns and the robust local cuisine, you won’t regret getting to know the northern region.
