From back roads and trails through the “socalcos” (terraced vineyards), challenging hill climbs to the Douro’s best viewpoints, thrilling descents, visits to the famous Quintas and wine tasting at The Vintage House Hotel, our Cycle the Douro programme incorporates the best of the Douro – all to be enjoyed on two wheels.
With breathtaking routes designed by expert guides and riders from specialist Live Love Ride, the programme includes bike hire to suit each guest’s ability and preference, be it touring, road or electrically assisted. A detailed route book incorporates the best cycle circuits with a pre-programmed GPS to help guide cyclists through the UNESCO world heritage site.
After exploring the region on wheels, dismount and take a guided tour of Croft Port’s vineyard at Quinta da Roêda, a short distance from the hotel, and sample some of Croft’s famous Port wines, from the Fine Ruby and Tawny to the innovative Croft Pink.
Enjoy a delicious Portuguese dinner at our Rabelo Restaurant, with local dishes inspired by the flavours of the Douro region.
