The lesser walked Camino along the Atlantic coast

The Portuguese Coastal Camino route is ideal for those who love coastal scenery as well as for the more adventurous walker.

You will find slightly less signage (until you enter Redondela – where the coastal track joins with the traditional Portuguese route and becomes well signed) and fewer fellow pilgrims than on the Spanish Camino. The locals are very friendly and willing to help!

The coastal route offers a choice of two paths and if you take the seashore path you will be walking on coastal tracks, beaches, old Roman roads and forest tracks crossing old villages and cities born from the Camino trail.

There is some walking alongside the road, especially when walking into Vigo and also into Santiago on the last day but for the most part footpaths, tracks and beaches.

With its sunny climate, gorgeous beaches, picturesque towns, historic sites and delicious food, the Portuguese Camino is the perfect destination to hike, feast, dance and relax.

We listen to what you want and tailor the walking to your ability and timeframes, giving you the experience you want, not what's easiest for us! We can vary the length of stages and find the accommodation that best suits your needs and budget.

We offer the route less trodden, taking the coastal paths where most walkers follow the inland route and miss the great Atlantic coast scenery. You'll get cooler temperatures and much more interesting walking days with ever-changing views and fewer people on the trail. We walk through a diverse landscape of vineyards, forests and fishing villages on this coastal trail, and all you carry is your daypack.
