Camino Portugues Coastal Guided Tour From Baiona to Santiago
This week-long Camino Portugues Coastal Guided Tour is one of our most popular Camino guided tours and for a good reason. This coastal tour takes the group right into the heart of the Rías Baixas, a region famous for its Albariño white wine and delicious shellfish. It is a wonderful alternative to the busier Camino Frances, allowing pilgrims to experience both a coastal trail and a slightly quieter Camino route to Santiago de Compostela.
The Camino Portugues Coastal Guided Tour joins the classic Camino Portuguese Central Way in the market town of Redondela where you will encounter pilgrims from all over the world. The group will then continue their Camino journey, passing the quaint village of Pontesampaio, the historic city of Pontevedra, the relaxing spa town of Caldas de Reis and Padrón, which is famous around the world for its celebrated writers and green peppers. In Santiago de Compostela you will be able to get the all-important ‘Compostela’ certificate!
This Camino Portugues Coastal Guided Tour starts in the elegant seaside town of Baiona, where you can visit the historic Monte Real castle, stroll along the port and go for a swim in the bay before starting your journey to Santiago. From Baiona, the group will walk the coastal trail towards beautiful Vigo, enjoying views of the magnificent Illas Cíes and Vigo Bay.
Talk to our team if you would like to add extra nights in Santiago de Compostela after your guided tour in order to explore this wonderful region. There are lots of things to see and do in Santiago de Compostela and we would highly recommend spending a little extra time here.
Please note: This tour is conducted in English but all of our guides are also fluent in Spanish.
