When I experienced Portugal on Viking River Cruises “Portugal’s River of Gold” cruise, I absolutely fell in love with the country. Unlike so many of Europe’s better-known destinations that are overrun with tourists, Portugal provides opportunities for more authentic cultural emersion. Here is a collection of 100 of my favorite photos from the Portugal portion of the trip.

My journey began with a couple of days of exploring Lisbon before heading to Porto where I boarded the Viking Torgil for the Douro River portion of the trip. The natural beauty of the Douro Valley with the quaint villages, hillside vineyards left me feeling like I was living inside a postcard. As a fan of food, wine, history, and architecture I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!   

Though this trip included an excursion into the beautiful Celtic city of Salamanca, Spain, I chose not to include those photos here as I’m saving them for another album:)

 The entire catalog of our Portugal photos can be found on our Flickr page.

Special thanks to Viking River Cruises for hosting me on this amazing trip!!
