There is a good reason why the Camino Portugues along the coast from Porto to Santiago de Compostela has become increasingly popular. Broad, sandy beaches invite you to take a dip and cool down in the Atlantic Ocean. The Camino passes lush regions with vineyards, picturesque villages and impressive cities like Porto, Vigo and Padrón. Along the way you are in for a treat enjoying the yummy local cuisine, experiencing the famous Portuguese hospitality and the warmth of the natives.
Our journey begins in Porto, the cultural capital of Portugal and home to the famous Port Wine. We recommend getting there a day early to enjoy the many sights!
On our first day, we lace up our boots and follow the Camino, as it winds along the coast and allows breathtaking views over the Atlantic's rough cliffs. The path will lead us through dense eucalyptus forests, backwood villages and fertile vineyards. There will be plenty of opportunities to go for a swim along the way and refresh body and mind. Besides stunning scenery, this tour offers many historic and cultural highlights. We will visit the beautiful Viana do Castelo with its famous castle and see the historic city of Padrón, where, as legend has it, the body of St. James arrived on an unmanned ship.
Arriving in Santiago, we will have time to experience the unique atmosphere of the city, collect our Compostela and visit the breathtaking pilgrim’s mess with over 2000 attendees.
Every morning we offer a daily impulse to the whole group. This can be a short text or a poem that will hopefully inspire you and give you some light input for your time on the way.
This tour lasts 14 days and you will travel 242 kilometres.
