Event Information

The walk takes us along the spectacular Portuguese costal route with amazing costal scenery, through lush forests, rolling farmlands and rustic villages.  Your final stop will be in Santiago de Compostela where you will have a day and a half to enjoy the Galician sites and cuisine.  You will also get a 2 hour tour of the historic old town of Santiago which has remained the same for centuries.  It has a labyrinth of old, narrow cobbled streets and in 1985 it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
