Comfort is always a priority, at the end of each day’s walk we have ensured that there is a hot shower, a cosy bed, an en suite and plenty of quiet. A good night’s sleep is mandatory and ensures that you wake rested and primed, ready for the next day’s adventure on the Camino, of course only after a satisfying breakfast. The accommodations we have chosen reflect the character and history of the region.
On the upgraded, luxury version of this walk the accommodations are all 4 star or better. Even though the accommodations are much more luxurious they still reflect the culture of the region. In addition you can still expect a warm country welcome each day and all the hospitality typical of being in country in Portugal.
It’s not by chance that when walkers visit Portugal, they almost immediately fall in love with the food and wine here. In Portugal, all the dishes, recipes and ingredients have a story to tell. This is a world you’ll get to experience both on foot but also with your knife and fork. The Camino travels through many towns that are renowned for excellent authentic traditional food. In the North it is worth frequenting Spanish Tapas bars to experience the wide range of local delicacies available.
Both Portugal and Spain have very old wine industries. Many of the wines on this walk you won’t find anywhere else. However alcohol or drinks with meals are not included (except tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).
