Easy camino

The standard Camino does not suit everyone, which is why we’ve created a less challenging option. Instead of walking a daily average of 20 km, our Easy Camino ranges from 7 to a maximum of 18 kilometres (4.3 to 11.2 miles) per day. Over the course of 9 days, you’ll walk the 116 km from Tui, a beautiful medieval town on the banks of the River Minho, through the delightful rural landscapes of Galicia. This distance is more than enough to qualify you for the compostela pilgrim certificate when you arrive at Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.

On the journey, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the authentic villages, intriguing towns such as Padrón and Caldas de Reis and the captivating city of Pontevedra. The ancient city of Santiago de Compostela centres around its magnificent cathedral and is full of atmospheric squares and arcaded medieval streets brought to life with shops and restaurants.

You won’t go hungry either, especially not with the tapas served with almost every drink. Fresh seafood, including mussels and oysters from the Ria de Vigo, is plentiful and delicious.
