From the 26th to the 29th May 2016, the first Douro Seven Meeting will take place, in the region of the wonderful Douro Valley.
The landscapes in the Douro Valley are composed of two things, the river Douro and the "socalcos" (vineyards' terraces) which, reportedly, are the only man-made structures seen from space. The roads you will be taking in, are around these two elements of divine inspiration and need; these carved landscapes are absolutely wonderful and show how man tried to overcome nature so they could survive by producing wine. This is your opportunity to visit a region that has been a regulated wine district since 1756, experiencing it in a different way and give you the opportunity to drive through Avis Best Road In The World.
Program (subject to changes):
26th - From 16h00 on, arrival of participants
27th - Driving day + Dinner
28th - Driving day + Dinner
29th - Photo + small parade + lunch
Due to this being a first time event, hotels must be booked by participants.
I prepared a list of hotels. You are welcomed to check for others around the area of Peso da Regua in booking websites if, the places I inform about aren't suited to your needs or tastes.
Any special requirements, as where to park trailers, for those who bring your Sevens in one, check with hotels. If the hotels aren't that happy about trailers, I can always find a solution.http://www.hotelreguadouro.pt/
