Activity Overview
Discover with us the harvest of the fruit that produces olive oil. We will tour the olive estate in the center of the Douro Demarcated Region in Portugal and get an opportunity to closely see the olive harvesting, partake in the harvesting process as you experience the local traditions and also taste the liquid gold - olive oil.

The tour commences in Porto as we head east towards the Douro region. The olive trees here create a beautiful landscape that has been awarded the World Heritage status by UNESCO. This Douro region consistently produces olive oils with a concentrated aroma.

On arriving at the Estate in Favaios, we visit the gardens and enjoy some Moscatel Wine as we head to the olive plantation for harvesting. Olive oil harvesting here is done using the traditional method known as “varejar” as the concertina is being played in the background.

Afterwards, there is olive oil tasting paired with a traditional Douro lunch. We then take a guided visit to experience the complete winemaking process of the Moscatel wine and Port wine.

On the way back we still have time to visit two beautiful viewpoints of the region to better understand the famous landscape.

The tour finally ends as we return to Porto.
