Overview

Discover the Camino in Portugal and Spain on an eBike over eight days on the Camino Portugues along the coast

Pedalling through the regions of Minho (in Portugal) and Galicia (in Spain), you will discover during this Camino Portugues by Ebike along the coast rivers, valleys, vineyards, fields and traditional villages with their characterful architecture and century-old rural farming practices, as well as meet people sharing your passion for adventure and exploration.

Starting your Camino Portugues by Ebike along the coast in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto, you will occasionally ride on an ancient Roman road, and cross many Roman Bridges. You’ll also discover towns and cities with stunning ancient architecture and fascinating history. Once you cross the Minho river, you will discover the stunning Cathedral in Tui and Redondela’s viaducts and the medieval centre of Pontevedra. Riverside Caldas de Reis is famous for its soothing thermal waters while Padrón lays claim to St. James’ first burial spot. His remains have since been relocated to what is now a monumental cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, where you will celebrate the end of your trip.

Camino Portugues By Ebike

DAY TO DAY PROGRAM CAMINO PORTUGUES ALONG THE COAST BY EBIKE

Day 1: Arrival at Porto

The amazing city of Porto; such a great way to start your Camino Portugues by Ebike along the coast! Discover the city, walk along the Douro river and get in love with the historical centre. During the night, we recommend you to rest before your Camino Portugues by Ebike along the coast starts.

Day 2: Porto – Vila do Conde 42 km

This day you can first enjoy the beautiful city of Porto. Then the camino begins and you will cycle first along the mouth of the Douro River and then along the beach. Once you leave the city center behind, we recommend you focus your attention on the beach and the sea, as there is not much special to see in that part of Porto.

Later, you will contemplate the Portuguese landscape until you reach on your Camino Portugues by Ebike along the coast Aldeia Nova. After that you will come across beautiful dunes on the beach but you won’t touch them, there are wooden walkways that you have to use. The landscape is similar but you will enjoy it. Protect yourself against the sun if it’s summer because it can hit very hard those days but remember, you can take a refreshing dip in the Atlantic sea at any time! In Vila do Conde your first day of the Camino Portugues by Ebike along the coast is finished…

Day 3: Vila do Conde – Viano do Castelo 55 km

Another day to enjoy the beautiful Camino Portuguese along the coast with Ebike. Cycling along the magnificent Atlantic coast can be healing. Take a deep breath, feel the wind through your hair and smell the sea as you cycle and enjoy your adventure. As you pass the Portuguese village of Puglia, you will see a number of old windmills. These are similar to the windmills that Don Quitchot faced and thought were giants.

You may think you have enough of the Portuguese landscape by now, but we assure you that the second part of this stage is also amazing. So take advantage of these days along the coast by taking enviable photos for family and friends. Along the way, you will pass through some Portuguese villages where you can enjoy delicious, local food accompanied by a local beer during a rest stop.
