Very nice experience: from Pinhão you can either kayak on the Douro or on a narrower tributary. We (family with teenagers) combined both. Life jackets and waterproof will be provided. Bring your own water. A sporty recommendation.
Wonderful trip up the river via boat. Crew and staff were very pleasant and accommodating. We then had an epic float downriver via kayak. Recommend
