Day 1 – Destination: The amazing...
Your guide will greet you in Oporto and drive north to Monverde – Wine Experience Hotel.
The hotel is exemplary in every way. The service is wonderful and the accommodation spectacular. The pool is a bonus and the views from the main homestead balcony are just superb. I chose this hotel because it fits perfectly with the surfwinetours concept. It is part of a very exclusive property where some of my favourite wines from the Vinho Verde region are produced.
Day 2 – Today we surf for the first time...
Today we go south to Praia da Vagueira, Aveiro. Hurry up! A top breakfast is waiting!
Vagueira beach is an awesome uncrowded spot. Normally it works well all over the year. – What a tremendous surf day! We surely need to recover and we heard that the fish here is really something… oh man, we are bursting and we have to drag ourselves… let’s go back to Monverde hotel and relax before the great evening to come. At Monverde everything is exceptional!
Day 3 – Hurry up! Breakfast is ready and Esmoriz beach is calling...
Esmoriz is a small traditional Portuguese village; It offers many different waves in a small area of coastline.
Known as great for beginners and advanced surfers, it is one of the most consistent surf spots in north Portugal. What a great surf session! We surely need some rest and lunch. What a great choice … incredibly delicious food and perfectly chosen wines to accompany … KO!
Now recovered, let us meet Quinta do Vallado… our guide told us wonders about this luxurious winery.
Day 4 – Tremendous breakfast! Now we can't wait to surf in Espinho beach...
Espinho is probably the best surf spot in north Portugal. It breaks off a jetty and runs through to the inside as a fast, walled up right that finally dies as a close out over shallow rocks. There will be plenty of tubing moments and swells of up to 3m+ (10ft).
Exhausted but incredibly happy we are ready for some drinks and snacks… Lunch time! Oh… the fish!!!
Tonight we will be staying at the fabulous Quinta da Pacheca Wine House Hotel.
Day 5 – Let's ride! It's our last day for surf and Matosinhos beach can't be missed... but first what comes first and a divine breakfast is waiting...
One major benefit of going to the beach at Matosinhos is that the area is renowned for its great restaurants, particularly seafood. Today Surf was even greater but it is time to recharge batteries… let’s rock!! It is time for a great meal before the return to Quinta da Pacheca. It gets better and better…
Day 6 – Adeus to Oporto and Douro Valley, goodbye north Portugal!
Relax this morning over a well-deserved and unforgettable buffet breakfast before our drive back to Oporto, where your guide will take you to your hotel or the airport.
We are grateful for the incredible experience and all new friends. Hope we can meet again soon on a surfwinetour!
