Day by day itinerary

DAY 1:


  • 10:15AM (be about 5min. before start time) : The tour starts late afternoon and involves exploring a more remote coastal area in the Bay of Vigo away from the  city!
  • This  tour leaves from Vigo  on a local ferry where you will enjoy amazing sea views before arriving in the small fishing village of Cangas.
  • During the short 20-minute trip your guide will explain the geography and history of the area — as well as explaining how the fishermen catch the delicious seafood!
  • From the Port of Cangas, we’ll take a short taxi ride to where we will commence the four kilometre coastal walk. Take in the scenery :  golden-sandy beach coves and a ruggedly, wild granite coastline. You’ll get amazing views of Spain´s top National Park, the Cies Islands. You'll have plenty of stops for photos and to breathe in all that fresh sea air. 
  • Then it´s on to the town of Cangas renowned for its array of charming fishing boats at the port, and we’ll stop at a trendy local tavern to taste some Galician tapas and wines. We’ll try four different kinds: calamares (squid), prawns, croquettes, and green peppers, washed down pairing with the famous local Albariño wines and the fashionable Godello white or the unique red Mencia wine. Young, fruity and aromatic wines with plenty of personality. A good moment to  learn about the different D.O wines in Galicia 
  • 03:15PM approx.: Our Cangas tour will finish at the Port of Cangas, where the ferry takes us back to Vigo. If you decide you want to stay longer in Cangas, you can do so (but please note that the last ferry leaves at 10:00pm). Otherwise, head back to see more of the city of Vigo.

Having had Sean O’rourke as our guide in Vigo and Cangas I came away enlightened, cheerful and very appreciative of the history, wines and foods of Galicia. We were double blessed as his lovely wife decided to join us and added her family perspective as residents of many generations. We could not have asked for more- highly recommend and well worth the fee.
