Camino Portugués Coastal Way
An interesting and quieter variation of the main Camino Portugues central route, the Portugues Coastal Way or Caminho da Costa runs from Porto to Santiago following the wild Atlantic coastline of northern Portugal and Galicia.
Starting in Porto, you take in the last two sections of the Pilgrimage to Santiago following rugged coastline rather than the landlocked Traditional Route. This gives you a chance to explore a different Camino, one bursting with Portuguese flavours, amazing little fishing villages and traditional cuisine. It is also possible to combine the traditional and coastal routes, starting in Lisbon on the central route, before heading along the coast from Porto.
Although the coastal way is a quieter option, we recommend testing this one out as soon as you can, as it is gaining in popularity! As with all of our Camino tours, we include daily baggage transfers and hand-picked accommodations, so you can be sure of a stress-free pilgrimage!
