Camino Portugués – Escorted 2018

Valenҫa to Santiago – The Final Section of the Camino Portugués


June 9th – 16th, 2018


€510 plus flight (single supplement €130).

This includes:

  • 7 nights’ accommodation on a B&B basis.
  • Airport transfer from Santiago to Valenҫa.
  • Bag transfer on each walking day.
  • Pilgrim passport issued by Camino Society Ireland.
  • Premier Plus travel insurance with Blue Insurance.
  • Full walking notes and directions for each day.
  • A Camino Groups walking top – the must-have fashion item of 2018!
  • A representative of Camino Groups will walk with the group each day as a guide.


The final stage of the Portuguese way is an ideal introduction to the Camino for any first-time Camino walker or for anyone who wants to avoid the longer days (and climbs) of other Camino sections.

117km spread out over 6 days is easier than the same distance from Sarria over 5 days, while the Portugués is quieter than the hustle and bustle of the more crowded Francés route.

Highlights include:

  • The citadel of Valenҫa – a highlight of this or any other Camino trip.
  • The old town of Tui with its 12th century cathedral, located on the Spain-Portugal border along the river Minho.
  • Arcade, famous for its oysters and along with a beach on your doorstep!
  • The beautiful old city centre of Pontevedra.
  • The thermal spas at Caldes de Reis.
  • Historic Padrón, where the body of St. James was said to have been brought ashore, now the home of the tasty “pimientos de Padrón”
  • Experience the walk to the cathedral of Santiago De Compostela, the end point for millions of pilgrims for over a thousand years.
