Description of Porto to Santiago De Compostela walking holiday

This Porto to Santiago de Compostela walking holiday follows the Camino Portugués route for a glorious two week trek, heading north through Portugal and Galicia, Spain. A tailor made trip, and self-guided, we recommend the itinerary below which follows the official Camino route through coastal landscapes, inland rural idylls and some stunning ancient towns.

On this walking holiday you will cover 241km between the two great cities of Porto in Portugal and Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain, where the pilgrimage comes to a close. Well almost, because we also offer a guided tour onto Finisterre where some say is the true end of the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail.

At the end of this trip you will be rewarded with the official pilgrims’ certificate, known as ‘Compostela’ upon your arrival at Santiago. We will organise all the accommodation for you along the way, as we work closely with many small hotels and guesthouses that have long traditions of welcoming Camino pilgrims. We can also ensure that your luggage is transported from one place to the next. As this is a tailor made itinerary, we can tweak it to suit your interests and time frame, adding a day of rest here and there, recommending places where it is good to do so, and also recommending some great eateries along the way.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism: Porto to Santiago De Compostela walking holiday

Environment

Beside the historic and social aspects of this wonderful walking holiday, this route is 100% environmentally friendly. As most of the walk goes through the countryside, and as the route during high season is very popular, it is important to keep the route clean for other pilgrims.

We request our guests not to litter, as garbage is a serious environmental problem for the route. Please make your own contribution to responsible tourism by staying on the marked paths and use reusable water bottles.

A large part of our travels has a touch off (or is entirely) an active holiday, in the mountains or by the ocean. The wonderful and enthusiastic work, which is being done to protect and maintain wildlife and national parks is dependent from visitors and their financial support.

Quality tourism means for us quality tourists, which are interested not only to see secret, hidden places, but also have the knowledge to understand what it takes to maintain these wonderful sights Northern Spain can offer.

We also offer activities which always respect nature and are guided by an expert, like whale-, brown bear-, bird- watching or fishing from a fishing boat. We also support local food and gastronomy with ecological products, sustainable wine-tourism etc. And we hope we add our part of improving each field and at the same time, maintaining the small-scale business authentic and “something special”.

Community

Our guests typically look for a different experience and an alternative to large-resort-commercial-travels. The peacefulness, the small villages, the local food, “secret” beaches and amazing mountain hikes and last but not least 100% customized pilgrimages are keywords in our philosophy.

A wonderful side-effect is that we assist developing local tourist-based economies by using their local taxi-services, local guides, bars, restaurants etc. by showing our guests local specialities and hidden places, that you will never find in “normal” guidebooks. Some of the hotel accommodations are located in historical buildings and the tourism helps to preserve them and their history.

Before starting your journey, you will receive a personal guidebook regarding the vacation, which takes in consideration the wishes of each traveller. E.g. if the traveller would like to visit small ecological wineries or discover the best examples of local architecture, our suggestions are all provided in the guidebook.

We are located in the heart of Northern Spain, in the old historic town of León. Our prime focus is to show our guests the most authentic, most beautiful and loveliest parts of Northern Spain. We always share our guest’s experiences with the hotels and other collaboration partners we work with, to help develop local tourism into a sustainable and healthy destination.

Its important for us to give our guests an experience that is not reachable in other parts of Europe, through showing them the real local life and hidden places, which our guest would never have found without our help.
