The Wonders of the Douro River and Why It’s Perfect for a Kosher Vacation

by Kosher River Cruise Kosher Tour Operator
We’ve all been craving for a kosher vacation for a while now, a chance to kick back and relax after a long number of months cooped up indoors. We’ve been thinking long and hard about where we will go once it’s safe for us to travel again. There’s a lot of different locales that we’ve been considering, but the Douro Valley of Iberia (specifically, Portugal) has caught our eye. 

The Douro Valley is a well-known region of Portugal, famous for its great wine and magical scenery. This wonderful land is also home to many Jewish communities from various eras that have lived here for a long time, and have now become part of the unique heritage of this land. Here are a few other great reasons why the Douro Valley is wonderful and great for your next kosher vacation. 


Quaint Towns and Cities

The banks of the Douro River have seen the rise and prosperity of Portugal as a nation. As such, it is home to a variety of quaint and elegant towns that still retain their charm after so many centuries. From Lamego to Barca d’Alva, the Douro is the site of many wonderful locales that are worth visiting as vacation areas. The great thing about touring the Douro River all at once is that you can visit multiple great towns and cities in one trip!

Exploring Jewish Heritage

Portugal has deep ties with Jewish heritage. The Sephardic Jews of The Iberian Peninsula (which constitutes Portugal, Spain and parts of France) lived, thrived, and continued to persist in Portugal throughout the centuries, developing new sciences, scholarly texts, religious insights and great art and poetry. If you want a closer look into the historical context of Iberian Jewry while enjoying a luxurious and delightful vacation, consider going on a glatt kosher holiday cruise along the Douro River.

A Wonderful Wine Region 

The Douro is known for its even temperatures and scenic natural landscapes. This makes it perfect for a wine region to develop. Enjoy some delicious kosher wine on a kosher vacation along the Douro wine region. Kick back and relax as you savor kosher-friendly beverages fresh from their source.
