The Experience

This 7-night journey is far more than a holiday. You will be immersed in the unique atmosphere that walking an ancient pilgrim path offers, establishing comradeship along the way, enjoying delicious meals and benefitting from the kindness of local people as they wish you ‘Buen Camino’! It is truly uplifting. You will be provided with a pilgrim passport, which should be stamped at two points each day and presented to the Pilgrim’s Office in Santiago where you will receive the ‘Compostela’ certificate if you have walked 100km or more. You can then enjoy the daily Pilgrims’ Mass – a most memorable and moving experience.

The Walking

Walking from Tui to Santiago along the Camino Portugues, the route heads north and follows the final 100km of the Way. The route is gently undulating with good way marks and has some transport options between towns if required. There are tranquil wooded sections near rivers as well as shaded paths with fine sea views.  However, in certain sections the pilgrim must also walk alongside roads and railways, but these are soon forgotten as the route deviates onto an ancient Roman pathway lined with stone crosses dating back to medieval times.

Luggage Transfer

Luggage may be transported from one hotel to the next enabling you to travel with a day rucksack. Unlike our other treks, luggage transfer is an optional extra as many Pilgrims prefer to travel light and carry their own. See pricing details for costs. There is a limit of 15kg per bag.

Walk Grading 

Self-Guided – Easy, with long days. Total for standard week ignoring variations:- Ascent 2151m, Descent 1940m, 78 miles.
