About us

We are Sílvia and António and we live in Ervedosa do Douro, a village on the southern bank of river Douro. We’ve created Douro Walks, a project based on hiking tours and experiences in Douro valley.

Our family works in the terraces of vineyards, olive and almond trees for generations. We are committed with the Douro culture and landscape. We intend to share that with you.
Our programmes are private and customizable and are meant to provide an authentic look into the sights, traditions, food and wine of Douro Valley.

About us

Walks

The walking paths are a way of accessing the fields. Apart from that, they are a window to the cycles of nature, the work and the days in the Douro. Thoreau says: «The fastest traveller is the one that walks.»  And we believe in that.
