A lovely day out with stunning views as you Cruise slowly up to the dam. There is running commentary on the boat ride but only in Spanish. The boats are quite roomy and glass sides and tops so you see a great deal while your slowly cruising along the river Duero. Again something we always do when we have visitors and not too expensive. Well worth the adventure Jane Jane

Tourguide didn’t speak any language only Spanish. I was not allowed to take pictures from back deck of the boat. I had to listen to her and I had no idea where she was talking about. So a bad and bad pictures. Foreign tourists should take the boat trips from Portugal they speak English. The people of this boat stay little by serving of only Spanish people.

Very, very difficult to find and only accessible by car or bike - very poor signage and narrow roads with serious bends and hills - but worth the effort. The road down to embarcation runs off the SA314 in the village of Masueco. The boat is actually called El Corazón de las Arribes and the approaches are signed as such. You will need basic Spanish. The commentary is in Spanish only but if you contact me by TripAdvisor message service with your email address, I will send you an English transcript which I was lucky enough to be given by an acquaitance. There are two trips a day at 1130 (I think) and at 1630 - the one we went on. The cost is 18 euros per adult for a totally memorable experience. The Duero gorge is absolutely spectacular with towering 300 meter granite cliffs carved out in the terciary epoch and small streams tumbling in cascades from the plateau above. The wildlife, especially avian, is the main reason to take this trip. We saw many vultures, both perching on the crags within 50 meters or so together with their nests and in their hundreds circling in towers above us. The guide pointed out an Egyptian vulture's nest although the bird itself wasn't around, but the high point was three Golden Eagles which we came across riding the thermals in the gorge at about 100 meters height and which slowly rose to mere dots in the sky. Apparently, they nest in the gorge every year and can be almost guaranteed to be spotted on every cruise.
