Camino 2024 Itinerary

We are delighted to bring you the full itinerary for your upcoming Camino trip in October and your chance to reserve your place. We will only be taking 12 people and we expect places to fill fast so don’t delay.

We have partnered with Camino Groups a licensed and bonded Irish travel agency so you know that your booking is protected with us. A big thank you to Eoin for putting together this bespoke itinerary for our group.

The Route

We will be walking the final section of the  Camino Portugués. The name is a bit misleading in that it is nearly all in Spain! You start from Valenҫa which is on the Portuguese side of the border between Spain and Portugal, crossing over to Tui.

Level of difficulty is moderate – this is one of the easier Camino sections.
