Camino Portuguese Way – Guided Coastal Route

Travelling 221km from Baiona to Santiago to Finisterre, this fully guided Camino Portuguese Way Coastal Route tour departs from Porto on September 28, 2024 and finishes in Santiago de Compostella 13 October. 

Can you picture it? Travelling with a group of likeminded adventurers through small villages and hamlets across remote farmland and unspoiled landscapes. You start your pilgrimage in the elegant seaside town of Baiona. Here you can visit the historic Monte Real castle, stroll along the port and swim in the bay before starting your journey to Santiago. From Baiona, the group will walk the coastal trail towards beautiful Vigo. Along the way, enjoying views of the magnificent Illas Cíes and Vigo Bay. And when you arrive in Santiago de Compostela, enjoy 2 nights in this stunning UNESCO-listed city. While in the city, you should take some time to explore Santiago’s old town and its wonders before you embark on your journey to the ‘Edge of the World’!

This one of our most popular Camino Guided tours – and for a good reason! 

We find it is a beautiful alternative to the busier Camino Frances, allowing pilgrims to experience both a coastal trail and a slightly quieter Camino route to Finisterre, taking you into the heart of the Rías Baixas, a region famous for its Albariño white wine and delicious shellfish.

The Coastal Guided Tour joins the classic Camino Portuguese Central Way in the market town of Redondela, where you will encounter pilgrims from all over the world!
