This itinerary is carefully designed for easy to manage walking days. There is a basic level of fitness required and some uphill stretches in part, however, given you only need to carry a lightweight day bag and your water supply, which can be replenished in the various villages on route, and other essentials such as snacks, it makes this trip very manageable for most active walkers.
The accommodation is a mix of centrally located hotels and Casa Rurals (Portuguese/Spanish privately owned accommodation). The meals are also a highlight. On occasion mama will be in the kitchen preparing a three course hearty meal known as the pilgrim’s staple which comes complete with a bottle of wine. There is also a variety of impressive cuisine from Michelin recognised chefs, and all dietary requirements are taken care of in advance. The language is Portuguese and Spanish. English is difficult to find, which adds an exciting dimension and a great reminder that you are travelling in a foreign land.
