What you'll do

Here in the Douro, where I live since childhoodI and I know very well. Let us walk together through unexplored places, but where nature is immense. Possibility to know the stories that my ancestors lived here. During our walk I will also want to explain more about our wine and taste our Port.
This walk also wants to help you go deeper into yourself and meditate on what your soul wants you to know.
Do you accept the challenge? Let's discover the vineyards, the vegetation, embrace the trees, touch the water and feel all these natural smells?
Other things to note
The walk is short, about 2 km. We will have to go down to Rio and go up later to return.

I graduated in Computer Management, but then when I started working, I discovered that it did not make me happy. Being enclosed inside in a office was exhausting for me. I've always been Nature's lover. I grew up in the Douro, surrounded by vineyards and playing in the forest, always in contact with Mother Nature. It made perfect sense to create my own project "Douro With Soul". Here I together my experience as a guide, the knowledge of the paths and the places with immense natural beauty and the history of the people (my ancestors) as we learn to listen to our Soul.

Where you'll be

We will walk between the vineyards, to see the birds and other animals that are crossing with us during the way. Where i'll take you, we will be able to meditate and be silent, to feel all the messages that Mother Nature has to offer us.
I suggest you have lunch at a typical restaurant here in the Village and visit the Cellar.

We were immersed in local culture from the start to the end of this wonderful walking tour. Natalie met us and started our walking tour meandering through her village. We walked maybe a half a KM until we reached a vineyard, the tour took us through the vineyard and out into wine country where after maybe another KM or so we found ourselves at peace by a gently flowing river. We soaked up the atmosphere here for about 30 mins and then started the hike back to the village, wherein we were escorted to a local restaurant who’s specialty is the local regional cuisine. We tried several really nice dishes and some local wines and once we mustered up the energy we were escorted around the local wine co-operative, where we had a personal tour inside the caves. We were thrilled to be able to spend the day with such a wonderful host whose knowledge and appreciation for the local culture & customs of the area were evident. A truly satisfying and educational day.

Durante toda minha viagem de 20 dias pelo interior de Portugal, busquei por experiências realmente genuínas e essa é a palavra que define a experiência com a Natalie. A começar pelo fato de que ela é filha do Douro e apaixonada pela região e por explorar cantinhos especiais e ainda pouco explorados turisticamente, o que é excelente, pois conseguimos compreender a essência do povo e da alma do Douro. Caminhar pelas encostas de vinhas, conversar sobre qualquer assunto me fez me sentir em casa, passando uma tarde com uma velha amiga e entregando à natureza toda e qualquer preocupação que me afligisse. Ter contato com o Rio vivo que nutre a história da região, ter um momento de pausa para a contemplação e meditação, desfrutar de um almoço local, conhecer histórias e produtos de pequenos produtores locais que lutam pela tradição e memória do vinho do Porto... enfim... quem quer ter uma experiência com a alma do Douro, só indico a Douro with soul! Gratidão Natalie!
