Sunday, 10th September

Location (start): Pocinho, Vila Nova de Foz Côa – 10:00

On Sunday, 10th September , the participants of the EUROPARC Conference will have the opportunity to visit the beautiful Douro Valley, UNESCO heritage, whose emblematic river runs along the northern edge of the Magic Mountains.

The visit includes a boat trip on the Douro river, between Pocinho and Pinhão, with buffet lunch on board.

Those who are interested in participating in this visit should express their interest in the Conference registration form. If you want to ensure your presence, sign up as soon as possible as the visit is limited to 200 participants.

The course begins in the village of Pocinho, at 10:30, and the arrival at Pinhão is expected at 15:30. From Pinhão to Porto, the trip will be made in the same buses that transported the participants to Pocinho, since their luggage will remain on these same buses during the boat trip. The estimated time of arrival in Porto is at 17:30.

Participants staying in the center of Porto should ensure their own transportation from here.

The visitors who do not wish to participate in this visit will have a transfer assured at 08:00, from the S. Pedro do Sul Thermal Spa to Porto Airport or to the center of Porto (S. Bento (train) Station) or, to the Train Station of Aveiro.
