Portugal Douro Valley in the mist

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
This spot is perfect to get the best view on the Douro River bend, more so when mist is lifting up from the valley at early morning hours. For landscape photographers, the valley is a true paradise, be it in black & white or colors. The valley has its deep green in all shades at the peak of the season when the vineyards are in full bloom.

Photography Tips

I stayed at the Casa Canilhas hotel but one does not need to stay there as you can park momentarily on the side of the road and shoot from this position : 41.1608357,-7.880265. A mid range zoom lens will do.

Travel Information

Only by car unless you can hike. There's a train station down at the valley from which you can hike up. I have not done the ride unfortunately but the train runs right along the river which must be a stunning experience by itself.
