Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Walking the Camino
Although we'll be walking along parts of the Camino de Santiago, it's important to note that our experience will be quite different from that of its Compostela-seeking pilgrims, who are required to walk at minimum the last 100 kilometers into Santiago—often along stretches of busy highway—and who typically stay in simple dormitories. This trip allows us to experience the essence and highlights of the Camino and surrounding landscape in comfort, with the region's best hotels, gourmet meals and excellent route support each day. Also keep in mind that as we are walking on the Camino, many parts of this historic pilgrimage are on paved paths, back roads or cobblestones. You can expect about half of the walking to be on a hard surface.
Air-Conditioning
Parador de Baiona and Hotel A Quinta da Auga are Premiere Hotels housed in beautiful historic buildings. While they offer outstanding service and amenities, please note that these hotels are equipped with bio-friendly air-cooling systems that may not be as cold as you are used to in other locations. Despite the region's generally temperate climate and cool nights, guestrooms can occasionally become warm during peak temperatures.
