Self-guided Portuguese Camino

Self-Guided Trip



days from


Quieter than the Camino Frances, the Portuguese Camino follows the route the body of the Apostle St. James took en-route his final resting place in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Starting in the city of Porto you walk this ancient pilgrimage route through small hamlets and pretty forests, over ancient bridges and through market towns dating back to the time of the Romans. As your luggage will be transferred for you, all you need to carry is your daypack.
