Portugal Self Guided Package – Portuguese Way Accommodation – 8 Days
Price: €625 (excluding flights)
PORTUGUESE COASTAL WAY
PORTO – BAIONA
Running from Porto to Baiona, the Portuguese Coastal Way is a scenic alternative to the busier classic Portuguese Way which can be found adjacent, yet, further inland.
This Camino starts in the enchanting city of Porto and runs alongside the Atlantic coast past sandy beaches, charming fishing villages, forest paths and medieval towns including Vila do Conde, Viana do Castelo and Caminha to cross the Minho river and enter Spain in the Galician town of A Guarda. The trial continues north along the remarkable rugged coastline, past Oia fishing village to finish in the historically important, popular seaside town of Baiona.
This eight day walking trip takes in just over 130km of the Portuguese Coastal Way, with average daily walking distances of 22km. The trail is very well signposted and has a good range of services (cafes, restaurants etc) along the trail to allow for breaks. This Camino route is recommended for those looking for a ‘flattish’ trail, next to the coast.
Comfortable and characterful 2, 3 and 4 star accommodation welcomes you each evening and allows for a good night’s rest while luggage transfers, 24hr phone assistance, walking notes and maps adds to the feeling of freedom and allows confidence to grow without having the stress of doing this trip independently.
