Douro Historical Train

The Douro Historical Train operates annually between June and October.

Travelling on the Douro Historical Train is like travelling back in time. In a route along the Douro River, the steam locomotive and the five historical carriages run the distance between Régua and Tua, on a unique trip to the past through the beautiful landscape, which is classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.

Note: Runs every year between June and October. We will disclose further details about the 2020 information as soon as possible.
