Trips up the Douro

In Oporto, Aveiro, Lisbon and Albufeira the journey doesn't end on the train.

So that you can experience more moments of leisure and discover new destinations with us, you can buy several tourism programmes of ´Douro Acima’ (Up the Douro) from our personalised sales points.

The tourism programmes for individual persons or groups can be bought separately or together with the train journeys, thus benefiting from the discounts in our services – Oporto Urban Trains, Intercidades, Regional and InterRegional – as well as in the ‘Douro Acima’ tourism programmes.

We also offer discounts on the Alfa Pendular and International trains for group journeys.

As a result of the evolution of the COVID-19 epidemiological situation in Portugal, Douro Acima has suspended tourist circuits in Lisbon, Oporto, Aveiro and Albufeira, with the exception of 6 Bridges Cruise in Oporto, which takes place during the week at 14h00 and 15h00.

The 6 Bridges Cruise does not take place on the weekends of November 28/29 and December 5/6.
