Travel between two countries and experience the grandeur of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites on this guided MTB tour from Guimarães in Portugal to Camino de Santiago in Spain. Several routes have been used over the years, but your guide invites you to take part in what is considered the main route used by the Portuguese: the Portuguese Central Way. This route runs along the same route as the old royal road between Porto and Valença on the border with Spain.
Day 1: Guimarães to Rubiães (75 km / 46 miles)
Travel from Guimarães Castle to Prado in the Minho Valley. Crossing the Cávado river, pick up the Roman cobbled paths that lead to the oldest town in Portugal, Ponte de Lima. After a short walk through the historic centre, cross a historical bridge and head into the Labruja mountains – stopping for an overnight stay in Rubiães.
Day 2: Rubiães to Pontevedra (65 km /40 miles)
Spend the morning crossing the Portuguese/Spanish border into Valenca. Arriving in the first Spanish city, climb to ‘El Montecito’ and explore the historic citadel. Travelling to Redondela on the Vigo estuary, reach Pontevedra, the capital of Galicia – stopping overnight for traditional home cooking and warm hospitality.
Day 3: Pontevedra to Santiago (65 km / 40 miles)
Head out on the last stretch to Caldas de Reys in the direction of the thermal baths – reaching Padron for a chance to taste the area’s infamous peppers. Reaching the Praca do Obradorio, pose for a final photo with your tour guide and explore the iconic city on foot – finding out more about Apostle Santiago and its spiritual infamy.
