A unique way to travel the Camino de Santiago is to do it by sea in a sailing boat, as in his time did the Apostle Santiago.

With this journey we present a new way officially recognized to obtain La Compostela. For this, it is necessary to sail at least 90 nautical miles and get the seal in all the ports marked by the route.

We will leave Vigo and arrive at the port of Boiro in a 3-day trip (90 nautical miles) where we can navigate the Vigo, Pontevedra and Arousa estuaries

Finally and to complete the Camino, you must walk the last 5 kilometers of the Portuguese Way from the town of Milladoiro, sealing in the homonymous chapel and also in the Pilgrim's office once you arrive in Santiago.
