Day 1 : Porto
Day 1 : Porto

Porto is the second most important city in Portugal after Lisbon. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is characterized by its architectural appeal, its spectacular river and the so famous and delicious sweet port wine. It is worth spending a whole day exploring this beautiful city. We are sure you want to go back.

Day 2 : Porto - Póvoa de Varzim (23 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty: easy.

A transfer takes us from Porto to Matosinhos, where we start the hike. Today shows us different beaches. This first stage leads along the banks of the Duero River and along the coast, through flat terrain and beautiful landscapes. We will cross the dunes along the boardwalks in a simple stage and without major bumps.

Day 3 : Póvoa de Varzim - Esposende (21 km ~ 5 hours)

Accommodation in Esposende.

Day 4 : Esposende - Viana do Castelo (24 km ~ 6 hours)
Day 4 : Esposende - Viana do Castelo (24 km ~ 6 hours)

Difficulty: medium.

Interior stage. We are moving away from the coastal landscapes that have accompanied us so far to trade them for the nature park on the north coast. We hike down the Neiva riverbed and enter Viana do Castelo. Particularly noteworthy is the beautiful old town of this city. The fact that this stage does not run along the coast does not mean that its scenic beauty is inferior to that of the other stages.


Accommodation in Viana do Castelo.

Day 5 : Viana do Castelo - Praia de Âncora (19 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 5 : Viana do Castelo - Praia de Âncora (19 km ~ 5 hours)

Today we experience a quiet day, a pleasant walk through flat land, wooden walkways, fishing villages and again the coast. This phase has no significant height differences or complications. We leave Viana do Castelo in this last stage of the Caminos in Portugal and head towards Praia de Ancora.


Accommodation in Praia de Âncora.

Day 6 : Praia de Âncora - A Guarda (13 km ~ 3 hours)
Day 6 : Praia de Âncora - A Guarda (13 km ~ 3 hours)

Difficulty: medium

We are reaching Galicia. We will cross the Miño River by ferry and leave Portugal behind to spend the last sections of this road in the Galician area. Scheduling is very important here, as the translation of the ferry varies depending on the tide. There is basically no ferry on Mondays, but we can use the taxi boats. The trip from one side of the river to the other takes around 15 minutes.


Once we have reached the other side of the Miño River, we will climb the Monte de Santa Tecla to continue walking parallel to the coast and reach A Guarda, a charming fishing village.


Accommodation in A Guarda.

Day 7 : A Guarda - Oia (13 km ~ 3 hours)
Day 7 : A Guarda - Oia (13 km ~ 3 hours)

Short and pleasant stage, but of great beauty. The Galician landscapes are in no way inferior to the Portuguese. We recommend visiting the Oia monastery.

Day 9 : Baiona - Vigo (27 km official road - 25 km along the coast ~ 6 hours)

Difficulty level: medium.

This first stage fascinates us with its landscapes. At the mouth of Vigo, we hike to Nigrán. We pass beaches such as Panxón, Patos and Samil until we reach the largest city in Galicia, Vigo. The difficulty today lies in the kilometers and differences in altitude. There is also the possibility to hike inland towards Priegue and Coruxo and then let us take you along the river path. This option can be a little less interesting, especially access to Vigo as it's an industrial area.


Accommodation in Vigo.

Day 10 : Vigo - Redondela (16 km ~ 4 hours)
Day 10 : Vigo - Redondela (16 km ~ 4 hours)

The forests and the estuary remain our companions on the way during the stage.

The last stage of the caminos. We will cross the N550 road several times and be guided by the railway line.
