Douro Valley in January?

Jump to last reply

I am planning three weeks in Portugal, approximately Jan 2 to Jan 23 (dates penciled in at this point). I will be traveling solo, and plan to use public transportation ....

My plan is to land in Porto, and then slowly work my way down through Portugal, eventually ending up crossing into Spain for three weeks in Andalusia (approx Jan 23 - Feb 13.). I am mindful that days are short (sunrise about 0800, sunset about 1730).

The question is: should I visit the Douro Valley in January (and if so, can it be done reasonably with public transport?) or is that best left for another trip in spring or fall?

Thank you. Barb
