Two journalists from Politiken, a leading daily newspaper in Denmark, embarked on a Douro press trip last Friday.
Poul Husted, senior editor of the Danish daily, and Lotte Malmgreen, wine journalist at the same newspaper, will spend a week aboard the Spirit of Chartwell, one of the most emblematic vessels of Douro Azul. The editor plans to write a reportage on Douro River cruises entitled "My Cruise on Port Wine", while the journalist seeks information for an article about wine tourism.
The route started in Porto, where the two journalists were received by Associação de Turismo do Porto. In the Undefeated city, they took a walking tour at the historic center and visited Livraria Lello and Palácio da Bolsa. During their cruise through the Douro, they will see Entre Rios, Régua, Barca d´Alva and Castelo Rodrigo and they will visit Mateus Palace and Quinta da Aveleda, among others.
This press trip is held in collaboration with Turismo de Portugal and it's sponsored by Douro Azul.
