THE CAWLEY CAMINO
Each year Phil Cawley of Today FM fame offers listeners the chance to take off on an amazing adventure walking the Camino de Santiago. The Cawley Camino team of intrepid walkers follow in the footsteps of Irish medieval pilgrims as they make their way to wonderful Santiago de Compostela and its famous cathedral, in Galicia. Since that first trek in 2015, the Cawley Camino has become an annual adventure for Today FM’s most intrepid listeners.
Phil and the team have tackled different Camino routes since: They’ve walked the famous Camino Frances from Sarria, the pilgrims’ favourite starting point; the Camino Portugues from Tui along vineyards and hamlets; the Camino Ingles from Ferrol, the classic route taken by Irish medieval pilgrims and the Portuguese Coastal Way from Vigo, the popular coastal alternative for pilgrims coming from Portugal.
Having enjoyed and loved the scenery, atmosphere and (of course) the exquisite food and drink of the coastal regions of Galicia, Phil is set to return to the Portuguese Coastal route for two back-to-back Camino adventures in 2019!
WALK THE PORTUGUESE COASTAL CAMINO FROM PORTO – 5TH SEPTEMBER 2019
This year Phil and a team of walking enthusiasts will take on the challenge of the Coastal Camino from Porto. This is a stunning trail that takes you from the lively town of Porto to the quiet coastal paths. The terrain of this route is relatively easy with little elevation in the seaside towns.
Enjoy stopping in friendly towns, meeting fellow pilgrims and tasting delicious local dishes, including fresh Bacalhau fish and other sweet treats.
WALK THE PORTUGUESE COASTAL CAMINO FROM VIGO – 12TH SEPTEMBER 2019
The Cawley Camino team of intrepid pilgrims will be tackling the Portuguese Coastal Camino from Vigo in 2019. The trek will take the team to the heart of the Rias Baixas of Galicia, famous for its white wine and delicious seafood. Fantastic views of Vigo Bay will kick start the adventure before taking to the vineyard-lined country tracks of Southern Galicia.
TACKLE ON THE FULL PORTUGUESE COASTAL CAMINO! – 5TH SEPTEMBER 2019 TO 19 SEPTEMBER 2019
Both trips have been planned to allow you to take on the longest Cawley Camino to date, walking the full length of the Portuguese Coastal Camino. Sign up for the trip of a lifetime and walk the full distance from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. You will enjoy a rest-day halfway through the adventure in the bustling city of Vigo that you can use to visit the city or take a boat trip to the Cies Islands: a small archipelago at the very end of Vigo Bay boasting the stunning Rodas Beach and awe-inspiring views from the island’s main lighthouse, reachable via a short 5km trek.
