"An extraordinary experience indeed. My wife and I had the pleasure of a 10 day Trek through some of the most unique Portuguese Countryside and upgraded to the 'Superior Collection' (Parador Hotels), well worth it and more. Camino ways were flawless in their organization and attention to detail from our very first contact. We have only good things to say, in fact endless compliments in regards to CaminoWays Staff, Parador Hotels, meals (5 Star for sure), Trek route etc. We Canadians were very pleased. With great appreciation Rob & Michelle." Camino Portugues.

The Camino Ways did an excellent job of ensuring that all of our needs were met. I was a first time traveler to Europe … I had no worries … details were taken care off… moreover the level of safety that I felt was paramount this definitely helped with the level of comfort that I was able to explore and feel. The rooms and meals were super in great locations definitely a great way to see and experience the culture. The directions for the trail of the Camino were superb as well. This trip exceeded all of my expectations … I am interested in doing another trip next year .. possible the English way …. I will not hesitate to work with the Camino Ways again… Oh yes… the hotels had respect for this company as well. Happy Trails”

Kira, Marcia and Shawn have walked the Camino in 2013, here it's there testimony : “Dear Camino Ways, Thanks for a fabulous trip! Our bike trip along the Portuguese Camino was everything we had hoped for. A time to experience Portuguese/Spanish culture in a variety of settings, the countryside, the people, the tourist attractions, vigorous exercise and each other. Our accommodations were outstanding and our luggage transfers flawless. Brand new mountain bikes were great! Our daughter often questioned the medium fitness level recommended, and my wife was a little concerned about her lack of mountain bike experience, but all would agree that it was a spectacular trip and would recommend to our fit, adventure seeking friends. Thanks, we loved it”

The stunning UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto in Northern Portugal is a wonderful place to start your journey cycling the Camino Portugues or Portuguese Way.

Bike-pilgrims (also known as ‘bicigrinos’) will get to see many different landscapes across Northern Portugal and Galicia on your way to  Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. From vineyards and forests to green hills and coastal paths, you will cycle past many lovely villages with magnificent Baroque and Romanesque churches.

This is the trail taken by Queen Isabel of Portugal on her way to Santiago de Compostela in the 13th century; and followed by many Portuguese pilgrims since.

You will cycle across the International Bridge between Valenca do Minho, in Portugal, and Tui, in Galicia, to continue your journey towards Santiago.

As you reach the Rías Baixas, treat yourself to a glass of its world famous Albariño white wine and superb seafood. In Galicia, the Camino Portugues takes pilgrims through lovely wooded areas, farmland and historic villages and towns such as wonderful Pontevedra.

*We recommend cycling the Camino only if you have some cycling experience and essential bike maintenance knowledge. Cycling the Camino de Santiago – How it Works. We can organise guided Camino cycling tours for private groups, talk to our team for more details.

This was indeed one of the most memorable experiences of my life, to walk the Camino Portugues in August 2017. Camino Ways were instrumental in making my itinerary and lodgings work so flawlessly so that I could focus on the Camino. All the places to stay were clean, well-maintained and in safe surroundings.
