Adventure offered by María

5 days
A unique way to travel the Camino de Santiago is to do it by sea in a sailing boat, as the Apostle Santiago did in his time.
With this journey we present a new officially recognized path to obtain La Compostela. To do this, it is necessary to sail at least 90 nautical miles and get the seal in all ports marked along the route.
We will leave Vigo and arrive at the port of Boiro or Villagarcía in a journey of 3 days- 3 nights (90 nautical miles) where we will be able to navigate through the estuaries of Vigo, Pontevedra and Arousa
Finally and to complete the Camino, you must walk the last 7 kilometers of the Portuguese Way from the town of Milladoiro, stamping in the homonymous chapel and also in the Pilgrim's office once you arrive in Santiago.

    Xacobea Nautical Crossing of the Arousa estuary

    Day 1 – We will receive the pilgrims at the Real Club Náutico de Vigo. Depending on the time of arrival, you can settle on the boat, leave your bags on board and take advantage of the day to take a look at the city and get to know its old town, the port area, the main streets... Or, even, It is possible to make a guided route. We will spend the night on board the sailboat moored in the port.

    Day 2 – We will begin the Way under sail: We will depart from Vigo and pass through Cangas, through the Cíes Islands National Park and arrive in Baiona, where we will spend the night on board moored in the port.

    Day 3 – We will depart from Baiona and sail through the Ons Island National Park or the Aldán estuary at the choice of the pilgrims or where the weather conditions are the most suitable and finally arriving in Portonovo or Combarro to spend the night. We will spend the night on board.

    Day 4 – We leave Portonovo or Combarro and go to Sanxenxo or Pedras Negras to put a stamp on our credential, where we will take the opportunity to take a walk and visit the area. Then we will resume our navigation towards the Arousa estuary, where we will have a picnic at anchor either on the Xidoiro Areoso islet or on the Arousa island. We will make a stop in Vilanova de Arousa and finally we will arrive at Cabo de Cruz (Boiro) or in Villagarcía de Arousa, where we will spend the night on board.

    Day 5 – We will disembark and a motorboat picks us up at the last port to make the Ascent of the Ulla river “La Traslatio” (approximately one hour of navigation) that will leave us in Pontecesures, just 3 kilometers from Padrón. Here we can choose to walk the last 25 kilometers of the Camino de Santiago (last section of the Portuguese Way) or only the last 7 km, which are mandatory from Milladoiro (we will take a taxi or transfer there, not included in the price).

    *The itinerary could be modified due to weather conditions

    El curso ha estado fenomenal. El patrón fue Iñaki y ha sido estupendo. Nos ha explicado muchísimas cosas sobre navegación en general a mayores del temario del curso. Consejos, interpretación de la navegacion, etc. Un 10 para él. La embarcación estaba genial también.
