Introduction

The Portuguese Way in Galicia is a route of notable monumental evidence, with strong cultural realities that go beyond the architectural and the museum-like, to enjoy a privileged route on horseback with friends.

It is a route to disconnect from daily life, relax and enjoy the horse and friends, and at the same time, pay a visit to our best friend and horseman Santiago the apostle so that he continues to watch over us and give us health to enjoy life.

At the end of the journey, we will stay and enjoy a farewell dinner. The next day we will have breakfast and accompany you to your point of return home. Wishing you have enjoyed the Camino and our services, we hope to see you again. 

As a horse-riding pilgrim we shall revive a part of the history of old Europe. 

Buen Camino! 

NOTE: A minimum of 4 people is required for this tour.
