Camino de Santiago by Sea: By way of the Estuary of Muros and Noia

The pilgrimage of Santiago by sea is an unforgettable way to experience the journey to Santiago de Compostela while
taking in the stunning Galician coastline from one of our sailboats. This unique experience recreates the routes taken by the Knights Templar centuries ago during their crusade. On this maritime adventure, you will discover some of the most beautiful and lesser-known corners of the Rias Baixas. Upon completion, you will receive an official accreditation of your journey, known as “La Compostelana”. The Xacobean sailing route takes five days, including three days of sailing and three nights aboard a sailing cruiser. An additional day is required for the 12 km walk from Bertamiráns to Santiago de Compostela.


Departing from the port of Vigo and sailing to the port of Portosín is a three-day voyage covering 90 nautical miles. You will experience the full glory of the breathtaking Rías Baixas, from the estuary of Vigo to A Coruña and the estuary of Muros and Noia. The last day is a beautiful 12 km country walk from Bertamiráns to Santiago de Compostela.
