For all tours, it's 500 euros to reserve and another payment by bank transfer or PayPal of 1000 euros six months before your start date. The balance will be due at our meetup. After we receive your Inscription Form, we will invoice you via PayPal for the deposit. Your Inscription is not complete until we receive your deposit. 

Includes all equipment, meals, and B&B or hotel accommodations. (see FAQ What is included)

Twelve guests plus three guides. This assures a compact group with close attention to individual needs.

If you are traveling alone, you may not be required to pay a surcharge. If you wish, we will place you in a room with another paddler of the same sex. (not sharing a bed, only a room with two beds) If we do not have another paddler to share or you choose not to share, we will arrange, when possible, a single room for an extra fee.  In 2024, these charges are 495€ for the 10-day tour and 360€  for the 6-day tour. In 2025, the single charge is €520 for a 10-day tour and €380 for a 6-day tour.

How to Pay 

After receiving your enrollment forms, we will email you a PayPal invoice for your deposit payment. As our margin is minimal, we would like to ask you to pay for all the costs of sending the payments to us. We must receive 500€ per person. The second payment of 1000 euros paid by bank transfer or PayPal will be due six months before your tour start date; the final invoice, including any bank charges, will be due in cash at the meetup.

Refunds

The deposit and the second payment are non-refundable if Douro Kayak does not cancel the trip. We recommend you purchase travel insurance that includes cancellation coverage.

Douro Kayak reserves the right to cancel any trip up to 60 days before the Start Date due to minimal numbers. These numbers are 6 for the 9-night trips and 4 for the 6-night trips. We will keep you updated at all times.
