Cycle the Camino Portuguese Day 1 Porto

The old city centre of Porto has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1996. There is plenty to keep you occupied here. This city, which sits on the banks of the Douro river, near the Atlantic Ocean, is perhaps most famous for the famous Port wine. There are lots of lovely bars, cafes and restaurants for you to enjoy the local cuisine and of course the Port wine!

Cycle the Camino Portuguese Day 2 Porto to Povoa de Varzim - 38km
Your first day of cycling starts in Matasinhos at the lifting bridge and follows the coast all the way to Povoa de Varzim on a wooden boardwalk with information panels near the beach. The trail is fairly easy and flat but the views of the Portuguese coast are stunning. You will pass by many historical monuments including Iron Age settlements, charming fishing villages, Medieval quarters and an impressive Roman aqueduct.

Cycle the Camino Portuguese Day 3 Povoa de Varzim to Viana do Castelo - 38km

As you make your way to the market town of Barcelos for your last night in Portugal enjoy the change of scenery from beach to quiet country lanes, screened by eucalyptus and pine woods. Have a picnic or even a swim in the Rio Este and visit a parish church dedicated to St Peter and reputedly ordered by St James himself on his evangelisation of the peninsula.

Cycle the Camino Portuguese Day 4 Viana do Castelo to Baiona - 55km

Today continue along the coast of Portugal. You are following a boardwalk for a while before cycling parallel to the coast road on a very safe cycling path. Don't race the locals, you are on holiday and can take advantage of the small villages you are crossing as well as the view points to use your camera, have a bite to eat or simply relax. You will cross the border to Spain on a ferry and arrive in Baiona via the cycle path again. Baiona is a jewel of a town. Small enough to be quiet yet big enough to have plenty to do and see.

Cycle the Camino Portuguese Day 5Baiona to Pontevedra - 53km

The first part of the day coming out of Baiona is again marvellous with wild coast cycling along the cycle path. You will be passing through Vigo, the largest town of the region and while the busy roads will provide a contrast to the previous days, you will be in and out in 1h30, then heading to the classic Camino Portuges inland at Redondela. You finish today in the the lovely town of Pontevedra. There is a great historical center and a vibrant atmosphere.

Cycle the Camino Portuguese Day 6 Pontevedra to Santiago de Compostela - 55km

Your final day of cycling on this section of the Camino will see you pass through chestnut groves and pine and eucalyptus woods. A statue of Saint James in Ponte Cabras with his staff will show you the way. Stop in Caldas do Rei for a dip in its hot springs and visit the ruins of the Castro Lupario fort. Along your journey you will see some of the oldest wayside crosses of Galicia. And as you make your way towards Agro des Monteiros you will be able to see the spires of the cathedral in Compostela. In the afternoon, you will arrive in the City of the Apostle, where you  can complete your journey with a visit to the Cathedral, a stroll around the old town and tapas in one of the charming bars.

Cycle the Camino Portuguese Day 7- Santiago de Compostela. End of the Camino
