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”

Magnificent Porto, the colourful UNESCO World Heritage city home of Port wine, is a wonderful starting point for your Camino Portugues.

This classic Camino de Santiago route takes in many different landscapes across Northern Portugal and Galicia, from lush forests and vineyards to rolling green hills and lovely villages dotted with magnificent Baroque and Romanesque churches.

You will travel along ancient paths, following in the footsteps of Queen Isabel of Portugal who took this trail to Santiago de Compostela in the 13th century. Since then, thousands of pilgrims have taken this way from Portugal to Santiago.

Once in Valenca do Minho, pilgrims will cross the River Minho over the International Bridge to reach Tui, in Galicia. From Tui, you will continue North towards Santiago reaching  the famous Rías Baixas, home of Albariño white wine and some of Europe’s top seafood.

In Galicia, the Portuguese Camino trail takes you to forests, farmlands and lovely historic villages and cities such as Pontevedra before taking you to magnificent Santiago de Compostela.

I was extremely pleased with the Caminoways , they were very efficient and have delivered more than my expectations. Our guide was excellent and was very sensitive eastwards our needs during the trip. Will definitely use their services if I decide to do the camino from a different route again
