Original Portuguese Camino | Our Walking Guide Tours | J Barter Travel


This is our third year organising and guiding the Irish Hospice Foundation’s Camino wal;k and we are very honoured to be involved with such a hardworking charity. We have established a strong friendship with those who spearhead the project as well as those who come back for more each year. This year, we turn our attention to the Original Portuguese Camino, starting in Valenca do Minho on the Spanish-Portuguese border, then heading north to Santiago de Compostela. Participants can look forward to discovering wooded trails alongside rivers and estuaries and strolling through some beautiful historic towns and cities.
