The Camino Portugues is the second most popular of the Camino de Santiago routes, traditionally taken by pilgrims coming from Portugal. This is a great Camino route that takes in beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean on the first few kilometres, a landscape that inspired the medieval troubadours of Vigo Bay.
As they follow in the footsteps of medieval pilgrims, students will stop in little villages and churches that have seen thousands of pilgrims pass on their way to Santiago since the Middle Ages.
The beautiful city of Pontevedra, the spa town of Caldas de Reis or Padron, known for its important writers and famous green peppers… are some of the highlights on this historic Camino de Santiago trail.
Once in Santiago, it is time to savour this achievement and with your pilgrim passport stamped as proof, the group will receive their Compostela pilgrim certificate, a precious memento of their journey.
The tour will also include a day to explore this wonderful UNESCO-listed city, wandering Santiago de Compostela Old Town, discovering its charms, food and vibrant University-town atmosphere.
As they tackle the challenge together, students will discover the spirit of the Camino, its camaraderie and bond with their classmates as they share a unique experience. An unforgettable school tour.
