Our Story

In 2021, we founded Daurum Solar Boats with a passion for nature and innovation. With a shared dream of offering travelers a sustainable and immersive way to explore the breathtaking beauty of the Douro, a group of four childhood friends set out to create something truly extraordinary. Drawing inspiration from the region's sun-kissed landscapes and centuries-old traditions, our goal was to create an experience that celebrated the natural beauty and cultural heritage of the Douro. Driven by our love for our homeland, its culture, wines, and never-tiring landscapes, we envisioned Daurum Solar Boats as more than just a tour company. We wanted to create an unforgettable journey that not only showcases the stunning Douro Valley but also supports sustainable tourism practices. Our aim is to provide an experience that allows travelers to connect deeply with the essence of the Douro while leaving a positive impact on the environment and local communities.

“What a fabulous experience! So serene on the beautiful Douro River. Much nicer than riding the noisy gas-powered boats with a crowd of people. David and his wife were charming guides! Highly recommend this! They even served us local almonds and two glasses of wine.”


Definitely get the TOUR HERE!! As a big group to have fun in a private boat, as a family trip to enjoy with loved ones, a romantic trip as a couple, and even to go solo and have a valuable “me time” that is self-care too, you know. David and Maria are kind locals and GREAT Hosts! The landscape is beautiful, and the Wine tasting is very nice, too, haha! Also, they have WI FI if you need it. But the BEST PART is you can be totally comfortable because the boat is solar powered, meaning is ECOLOGICAL and SILENT.”

“We took a lovely tour with David and Fabian. They were very knowledgeable about the region, and we sampled delicious red and white wines while we cruised. The advantage of the solar boat is that the engine is silent, so it was a much more peaceful and personal voyage than the other boats, which had a driver using a microphone to be heard over the noise of the engine. Definitely recommend when in Pinhao!”

“One of the greatest things about this boat is that it is very silent, and you get to enjoy a peaceful ride through the river. Others have loud music and speakers, but this one was very private (I was actually by myself), so it was a great and personal experience, and I really recommend it. They served me wine and offered to take pictures of me. Thank you, guys!”
