Portuguese Coast Camino Tours

This route is mostly flat and accessible year round as it traverses Portugal and Spain along the Atlantic coast, surrounded by magnificent coastal scenery. A spectacular journey along cliffs and beaches that will lead you to Santiago de Compostela.

An official route since 2016, its starting point is Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage town full of life and entertainment options. It's well worth spending an extra day to visit and enjoy some Port wine. You will cross fishing villages, walk through impressive beaches and old historical town centers like Viana do Castelo. Portugal is when known for its local bakeries so take some time to explore as you make your way north.

When you reach the Minho river, instead of turning inland to meet the Portuguese Camino (Central) you will cross on the ferry at Caminha towards A Guarda and its spectacular Santa Tegra Mountain and its pre-roman ruins. After that, you will continue for about 50 miles along coastal towns until finally merging with the Portuguese Central Camino at Redondela.
