Portuguese Coastal Camino

Apr 18 - May 01, 2021

14 days | Portugal | alumni UBC Travel Club

Walk the Portuguese Way along the less travelled ‘friendly Camino’, to enjoy the tradition of hospitality offered to pilgrims since the middle-ages where all villages and towns participate with their generosity and warm welcome.

Your 14-day, 200-kilometre guided walk, accompanied by coach Marisa Mae and our Portuguese expert walking guide Horacio Santos is a true Camino; you will be walking from one village to the next every day, with your luggage transported to the next village inn. The route is carefully designed for easy to manage walking days. You will have a pack of easy to read maps and instructions, complete with directions to guide you on the well-marked paths and tracks, following the yellow arrows. And should you need to take a break, support is just a phone call away. Please read the details of each day’s walk carefully.

Our route starts in the colourful UNESCO-listed city of Porto and follows a beautiful landscape of beaches and dunes through charming seaside towns and villages before crossing into Spain with farmhouses, forests, rolling hills and cobbled stone paths a feature of the journey. You’ll taste delicious seafood and wine, stay in fishing villages with sandy beaches, and be refreshed by the maritime breezes and the sun at your back.
