Family Cycling on the Camino Portugues Coastal
Family Cycling on the Camino Portugues Coastal is a great way to incorporate health and fitness into an exciting holiday, especially with a 6-day itinerary. The warm weather makes it a perfect route for your summer or autumn family holiday.
Your Camino adventure will start in Vigo, Galicia’s central city. This vibrant and dynamic coastal city has plenty to offer, from a historic old town to spectacular sea views from the promenade and delicious seafood served in family-run restaurants.
The route will take you through a beautiful variety of landscapes. One day, you can cycle along the coast with seaside villages, vineyards, and streams. This Coastal Camino is perfect for your family if you want to experience the Camino, with a great combination of countryside and sightseeing. It is less busy than the Camino Frances so it might be a quieter cycling route for you and your family.
Your adventure will finish in the Holy City of Santiago de Compostela, which will surprise you with its beauty and rich history. The UNESCO World Heritage city deserves a few days to be thoroughly enjoyed, so we recommend you extend your stay for another night to make the most of it.
This package is great for family cycling, but If you want to challenge yourself, you can also decide to do family walking on the Portuguese Coastal. If you are unsure whether to walk or cycle with your family, read our blog on whether to choose walking or cycling. You can also get a number of helpful tips about cycling with kids on our blog, which has articles filled with great advice tailored for those cycling the Camino.
This itinerary is for people with kids (16 yo and under). If your party is made of adults only, look at the Cycling Camino Portugues Coastal from Porto to Santiago.
