Cycling the Portuguese Coastal Camino from Porto is a fantastic trip for cycling enthusiasts looking to experience the Camino de Santiago on two wheels.
The Portuguese Coastal Camino (also known as Caminho da Costa and Caminho da Senda Litoral) is a stunning alternative route to the Portuguese Camino de Santiago. You will start your journey from colourful UNESCO-listed Porto and cycle along the Atlantic Ocean, stopping in charming seaside towns and fishing villages in Northern Portugal.
From Caminha, you will take the ferry boat to reach A Guarda, in Galicia, and continue your journey towards Santiago de Compostela, cycling in the heart of the Rías Baixas.
Discover the wild Atlantic beauty and sandy beaches of Northern Portugal and Southern Galicia, taste delicious seafood and wine, stay in fishing villages, and feel refreshed by the maritime feel of this scenic coastal Camino route.
This route is perfect for cyclists as it takes in beautiful coastal scenery, is never too busy, and is just perfect during the summer months when the weather is generally mild and sunny. We highly recommend this route for cycling, especially for families and for large groups of friends.
*We recommend cycling the Camino only if you have some cycling experience and if you have essential bike maintenance knowledge: Cycling the Camino de Santiago – How it Works.

I took hundreds of pictures. Each day was an exciting adventure. The luggage transfers worked perfectly. What a pleasure to only carry your day back and have your luggage shuttled to the next destination
