Full Description

Enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the Oporto riverbank with a graceful trip along the Douro River from aboard the Rabelo, an authentic Portuguese boat, which in the past was used to transport cargo and people. The boat will take you all the way from the Afurada to Marina do Freixo.

You will have the opportunity to see up close the six different bridges that connect Oporto and Gaia: D. Luis, Infante, Dona Maria, S. Joao, Arrabida e Freixo. Admire the beautiful scenery along the route, nature at its finest!



Admire the emblematic Dom Luis bridge and its spectacular arch, built in 1881 and inaugurated on the 31st of October, 1886. The project was under the responsibility of Gustave Eiffel associate, Teofilo Seyrig. Visit the Infante D. Henrique Bridge, one of the most elegant of its type and the most recent bridge named in honour of Infante D. Henrique. You will certainly be impressed by the Dona Maria Pia Bridge, Gustavo Eiffel's first masterpiece: built between 1876 and 1877, it was the first railway bridge joining the two river banks of the Douro River. The tour will take you to see the Sao Joao Bridge, erected in 1991 to replace the Dona Maria Pia Bridge, and the Arrabida Bridge that back when it was constructed, had the world’s largest arch of reinforced concrete. Finally you will see the Freixo Bridge, situated the furthest away upstream in Oporto. The vistas of Porto from the boat and the sights of the impressive bridges will take your breath away.
