Portugal River Cruises

For some travelers, the ultimate way to explore Portugal is to engage in a Portugal River Cruise. The comfort, and convenience of sightseeing onboard, accompanied by a gourmet onboard experience, complement Portugal's stunning scenery and fascinating culture. 

During a Portugal River Cruise, one can explore incredible scenery such as the Douro Valley's stunning terraced vineyard, extending over a hundred kilometers along the Douro to the Spanish border. 

While in Lisbon, cruise enthusiasts should also not skip the magnificent Tagus Private River Cruise. Enjoy beautiful views of Lisbon with our two-hours sailing tour. Relax in the open air and soak up the sun as you see the city's famous landmarks. 

 

What are Portugal River Cruises?

Portugal has a diverse topography ranging from mountains that encompass a vast coastal plain to many lakes and rivers flowing through the country. We have at least ten major rivers, five of which originate from Spain. 

Portugal River Cruises are one of the most elevating and relaxing ways to travel in Portugal. Benefit from the magic of cruising through the heart of Portugal while enjoying the sun and scenic views and seeping a glass of wine.  

A Portugal River Cruise is likely to happen on one of the most beautiful and important rivers in Portugal, the Tagus River, and the Douro Valley. The Douro River Cruise is very popular amongst cruise fans. 

The Tagus River is the lengthiest in the Iberian Peninsula, originated in Spain, flowing into Portugal, and disembogues near Lisbon in the Atlantic Ocean. 

On the other hand, the Douro is one of the most important rivers in the Iberian Peninsula, flowing from its source in Soria Province and disemboguing in Porto. The Douro is the third longest river in the Iberian Peninsula, forming a border between Portugal and Spain. 

 

Types of Portugal River Cruises

Suppose you are looking for a Portugal River Cruise. In that case, we suggest embarking on an unforgettable Private River Cruise alongside the Douro river's beautiful riverbanks awash or venturing into a comprehensive panoramic river cruise alongside Lisbon's most epical façade. 

 

Douro River Cruise

A Douro River Cruise is one of the most amazing trips one should experience while in Portugal. Designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO, the Douro River covers 557 miles from the source to length to mouth. The age-old banks of the Douro River remain as enchanting as ever, covered with peaceful terraces where locals cultivate olives, almonds, and grapes. 

A Portugal River Cruise to Douro Valley likely starts at a charming, elegant, and singular wine estate composed of 24 hectares with stunning views over the Douro slopes. This property produces remarkable wines by treating its great terroir with the respect it deserves and using the traditional methods updated in the light of the latest advances.

Here at Portugal Deluxe, we combine the Douro River Cruise with a private visit to a local winery.

Enjoy a private visit followed by a premium lectured wine tasting. Come aboard a vintage yacht and indulge in an exclusive lunch served throughout the trip, on the deck, under the signature of extraordinary Chef Rui Paula. 

Book our Private Douro River cruise with us, and create a true revelation of a still undiscovered place with dramatic cliffs, lush hillsides, medieval walled villages, and fine vineyards.

Portugal River Cruises

Lisbon River Cruise

Situated at the mouth of the River Tagus, where it meets the Ocean, Lisbon is a city with a solid connection to the sea and is the only European capital with Atlantic beaches.

Our Portugal River Cruise in Lisbon aboard a luxury vessel happens in the Tagus River and includes a panoramic first row to the main Lisbon facade. The estuary of the Tagus River serves as one of the finest harbors in Europe and hosts one of the continent's longest suspension bridges, the Ponte 25 de Abril, which is 3,323 feet long. It's a wide river, and its waters blend with the Atlantic, especially when it reaches the Belém district.

The Tagus reflects the sunlight that gives Lisbon its singular luminosity, making the Portuguese capital the only one in Europe with a rich natural protected area.

The Tagus estuary is the habitat of over 100,000 birds, and you can see many of them by the Vasco da Gama Bridge. It gives the city peace, with about 20km of promenades, landscaped areas, bike paths, and outdoor cafés. From these shores, many explorers departed to India, China, Brazil, and almost every corner of the globe. 

While seeping a glass of wine and eating the local natas pastry, observe the noteworthy nautical monuments such as Belem Tower, Discovery Monument, 25 April Bridge, Sanctuary of Christ the King, MAAT (Museum of Art and Architecture and Technology), and Comercio Square.
