Camino Portugues (Potuguese Camino) Self Guided Walking Holidays
The Camino Espiritual, also known as the Arousa Sea Route or Translatio Route, is a beautiful trail, taking pilgrims through quaint coastal villages, lush forest tracks, vineyards, sandy beaches and ancient monasteries following an alternative route to the classic Camino Portugues.
This version of the Camino Espiritual tour combines walking in the beautiful coastal region of O Salnes with a short boat trip across the Sea of Arousa and up the River Ulla all the way to Padron, believed to be where the boat carrying the remains of St James first landed in Galicia.
Walk the last 100 km of the Camino Portugués from Tui to Santiago de Compostela – the minimum required to earn your Compostela. This final section of the walk takes you through the region of Galicia in Northern Spain to Santiago for a unique experience you’ll treasure forever.
Walk the final stage of the Camino Portugués from the medieval town of Tui to the magnificent cathedral in Santiago de Compostela in nine walking days at a leisurely pace and take your time to explore the beautiful villages along the route, the local culture and the Galician cuisine.
The Coastal Way (Caminho da Costa) is a quieter but equally impressive alternative route to the traditional central way of the Portuguese Camino. Starting from beautiful Porto, you will follow the rugged Atlantic coastline and the sandy beaches of Northern Portugal and Galicia, taste delicious seafood and wine, and stay in tiny fishing villages.
Starting in Porto, you will follow the ancient pilgrim trails to Santiago de Compostela for a unique experience you’ll treasure forever. The Camino Portugués central route is relatively flat and easy to navigate and it is a great alternative to the French Camino. Spend unforgettable two weeks walking through stunning countryside.
