Thorunn, Iceland - April 2018
"Dear CaminoWays, Just a few words of thanks and appreciation upon our return home to Iceland after touring the Portugese Coastal Route from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. We would never be able to find the appropriate words to describe the wonderful experience we had. The scenery is beautiful and so is the exercise and piece of mind you gain when you walk all by yourself tens of kilometers every day. Throughout the tour we never had an instant where your organisation of the trip failed in any manner. Drivers who picked us up and drove to airports were on time and service minded, all hotels were beyond expectations, and we felt safe and secure realising how thorough all your preparation was. Bottom line - we feel fortunate that we chose you to plan our trip and the whole tour was an experience which will be valued and never forgotten." 5 May 2018

"I thought their recommendation was great. We were travelling around for over 3 weeks of which the Camino was only 1 week of it. We both loved Porto and the walking was really nice with the sea breeze. We definitely intend to return and finish the walk as far as Santiago. We only did 4 days of walking and each day seemed to bring something different. Walking by the sea for the full first day was lovely but then the more agricultural areas the second day also had their charms. I think the 4th days walking from Viana do Castelo to Vila Praia de Ancora was probably the nicest with all the Eucalyptus forests trails and great views."

"This September I did my second trip with Camino Ways. My husband and I walked for 16 days. We started in Porto, Portugal and walked to Santiago (12 days) and then on to Finisterre (4 days.) I highly recommend Camino Ways! They handled the accommodations, which included breakfast every day and dinner 12 nights. This Camino is not nearly as popular as the French Way, but it is very lovely. 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."

The Portuguese Coastal Camino is a stunning and very scenic alternative route to the classic Portuguese Camino. Starting in colourful UNESCO-listed Porto this Camino trail will take you to charming seaside towns and villages in Northern Portugal, along the superb Atlantic Coast. Over the course of 12 days you will visit the most charming towns and villages from coast to the mountains.

From Caminha, you will cross by ferry to A Guarda, in Galicia, and the heart of the Rías Baixas, to continue this memorable journey towards Santiago de Compostela.

Discover the wild Atlantic beauty and sandy beaches of Northern Portugal and Southern Galicia, taste delicious seafood and wine, stay in pretty fishing villages and be refreshed by the maritime feel of this scenic Coastal Camino.

*Please note the Caminho da Senda Litoral follows the coastline, while the Caminho da Costa (better signposted) weaves inland at times and overlaps with the Senda Litoral in certain sections. If you happen to take the Caminho da Costa, don’t worry, the trail will take you back to the same finishing point. Check the maps and walking notes provided. This route has excellent reviews with many 5 star ratings.
