Immerse yourself in the beautiful landscapes of the Sil River Canyons on this tour from Lugo. What's more, you'll enjoy a tasting of local wine too!

Ribeira Sacra Tour

Having been picked up from Lugo, you'll leave the city behind and head south towards the Ribeira Sacra, an area of outstanding natural beauty whose name translates roughly as "Sacred Shores".

To make the most of your time in this spectacular area of Galicia, you'll climb aboard a tourist train (between October and May) or a boat (between June and September), which will take you on a sightseeing adventure around the canyons of the Sil River. The river runs between dramatic gorges, whose banks are covered in almost impossibly steep vineyards. From this complex system of vines come white wines labelled with the Ribeira Sacra Denominación de Origen.

Just before embarking on your train or boat tour of the Sil River landscapes, you'll have the opportunity to taste the excellent wines for which the area is famous. You'll make a stop at the Regina Viarium winery, where you'll enjoy a sampling of these delicious beverages while admiring the magnificent views over the Ribeira Sacra from the bodega's viewpoint. 

Then, at the end of your tour of the Ribeira Sacra, you'll make the return journey to Lugo.

Meeting point

This excursion includes a pick up service from hotels in Lugo around 9 am. If you're not staying in the city or you'd prefer to make your own way to the meeting point, meet at Praza de Bretaña at 9:30 am.
