Tour Map

Type of Terrain: Mixed. A good mixture between the typical wine country landscape of the Douro and the rough nature and car-free roads of the Douro International park.

Hilly stages: Long climbs to the vantage points alongside the river, they're great challenges for those who wish to push themselves a little harder;

Descents: Beautiful descents towards the big dams across the river and in the Douro International park but not technically difficult.
