The grapes that grow along the Douro transform into sweet Port wine, making this river an oenophile’s dream. With scenic hikes galore, it’s also a great place to burn off those extra calories while taking in stunning views and the river and vineyards below. Portugal is a hot destination these days, and it’s not hard to see why, with the picturesque river valley and beautiful city of Porto highlighting an itinerary along the Douro. Be sure to spend a few days in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon as well to make the journey complete.
