About Us

OUR STORY

In the year 2021, fueled by a passion for both nature and innovation, Daurum Solar Boats was born. With a shared dream of offering travelers a sustainable and immersive way to explore the breathtaking beauty of the Douro, our founders set out to create something truly extraordinary. Drawing inspiration from the region's sun-kissed landscapes and centuries-old traditions, we aimed to create an experience that celebrated the Douro's natural beauty and cultural heritage.

From the beginning, our mission was clear: to provide travelers with a unique opportunity to connect with nature, immerse themselves in local culture, and positively impact the environment. Each tour became a testament to our steadfast dedication to sustainability and responsible tourism – a pledge to tread lightly on the earth while offering guests an unforgettable experience they would cherish for a lifetime.

As the seasons passed and word of our eco-friendly adventures spread far and wide, Daurum Solar Boats flourished into more than just a business – it became an ideal choice for those who choose conscious traveling. With each passing year, our fleet grew, our routes expanded, and our commitment to our guests and the planet deepened.

Today, as we look back on our journey, we are filled with gratitude for the countless travelers who have shared in our vision and joined us on this incredible adventure. Together, we have explored hidden coves, tasted the finest wines, and forged memories that will last a lifetime.

But our story is far from over. With every sunrise, we set sail once more, guided by our passion for sustainability, our love for the Douro, and our firm belief that the best journeys are the ones that leave the lightest footprint on the earth.
