Portuguese Coastal Camino

Sep 06-18, 2023

13 days | Portugal | Alumni Expeditions

This tour is presented by the alumni associations of the University of Alberta, the University of Saskatchewan, Western University, McGill University, University of British Columbia, and McMaster University. All are welcome!
 
Walk the Camino Portugues Coastal Route, the less travelled, quieter, Camino.

Your 200-km walk starts in the colourful UNESCO-listed city of Porto and follows a beautiful landscape of wild Atlantic coastline, walking through seaside towns and fishing villages, past river estuaries and sandy beaches before crossing the River Minho into Spain. The path continues through the historic medieval towns and enchanted forests of Galicia to arrive in the wonderful city of Santiago. You’ll taste delicious seafood and wine, stay in fishing villages, and be refreshed by the maritime breezes and the sun at your back.

This is a true Camino; you will be walking from one village to the next every day, with your luggage transported to your next accommodation. The route is carefully designed for easy to manage walking days. This is not a guided tour – you set the pace for your own walk with a pack of maps and instructions to help you follow the yellow arrows along the well-marked paths and tracks. Our walk leaders are the front and rear of the group and our minivan and driver are available for support as needed.

If you’ve been contemplating a way to get into shape, this walk may be the perfect incentive.

And if you’re a regular walker at home, why not reward yourself with an extended walk in this most beautiful part of the world!
