At last the long wait in the lead up to the Travel Enriched Spring Tours 2018 is nearly over! The coming month will see us following three of the lesser travelled Pilgrim trails to Santiago de Compostela. First up is our 13 day signature tour along the traditional Camino Portugues via charming villages and fertile farm lands filled with budding grapevines and a wide variety of other crops.
Coinciding with this tour a second offering provides a new challenge for the more experienced Camino walker. Beginning and ending in Santiago it follows the full circuit of the Camino Finisterre. Over 10 days this pathway passes through lush green forests and remote and rugged rural landscapes, often covered with colourful wildflowers.
Those who join us in late May to mid June on our final Spring tour will follow the coastal route of the Camino Portugues. Commencing in the fascinating medieval city of Oporto this scenic pathway takes us along boardwalks and farming tracks between the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. In the last few days it merges with the traditional route leading us to our historic Pilgrim destination.
If you’d like to hear something of our adventures along these trails watch this space! Short summaries of the highlights together with a selection of photos will be posted over the next few weeks.
