Join us walking the lesser travelled Caminho Português de Santiago from Porto to Santiago de Compostela, an alternative Camino to the more renowned Camino Frances through Spain. Passing vineyards, crop fields and farms along the way, this trail gives us an insight into the suburban Portuguese way of living.

Walking the Caminho Português is a quieter experience, allowing time for reflection and time to absorb the changing landscape of Portugal, the warmth of the local people, the stunning coastline and historic towns.
Beginning in the World Heritage site of Porto, we walk through a mixture of coastal, forest and open countryside trails to our final destination, the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, where pilgrims from all over the world congregate.

Our arrival coincides with Easter Sunday, where the processions are an incredibly special experience!
