The event starts at 05:00.

Foz Côa Douro Trail Adventure® (FCDTA) is organized by Carlos Sá Nature Events with the support of the Municipal Chamber of Vila Nova de Foz Côa.
The event Foz Côa Douro Trail Adventure 7 days/6 stages will be held from 5th to 11th October 2019.
FCDTA also offers a version for beginners – FCDTA Starter – in which participants can run a shorter distance in most stages.
FCDTA’s participants will be able to enjoy the magnificent landscapes of mountains and terraced valleys, ripped by the rivers Douro and Côa, the agricultural fields with vine-yards (one of the best wines in the world), the almond trees in blossom and olive trees. The disabled railway line of Tua and Pocinho, the trips on the Douro River from Pocinho dock, the Côa Museum (the largest collection of rock art in the world), the his-toric villages of Castelo Rodrigo, Marialva, Foz Côa, Castelo Melhor, Castelo de Numão, the most varied sightseeing spots and the city of Porto are some of the outstanding places of the region.
Gastronomic tourism with delicacies and typical ingredients from the region, as well as art and culture and the modern Côa Museum, led the region to be awarded as World Heritage in 1998. On boat trips along the Douro River, from the Pocinho dock to Barca d’Alva (on the “Senhora da Veiga” boat, owned by the Municipality of Vila Nova de Foz Côa), FCDTA participants will observe the cliffs and terraces of Alto Douro Vinhateiro’s vineyards, also classified as World Heritage.
