Trip Overview
Overview

On this privately guided, week-long seafood pilgrimage, delve deep into the world of barnacle hunters, oyster fishermen, lobster trap builders, razor clam-diggers, and net menders, along with the local chefs who are harnessing the incredible offerings of their coast, transforming Galician cuisine into something new and exciting. Though the focus will be seafood and the traditional artisans along this coast, you’ll be exploring all facets of Galician identity—history, folklore, architecture, music, language, and religion—and gaining a deeper understanding of its unbreakable bond with the sea.

Additional Info

Pricing

The cost of this trip is $4,320 per person, based on three or more travelers, and double occupancy at a four-star hotel during low season. Hotel prices can increase during high season, which will influence the cost of the trip depending on your dates. For a single occupancy room, there will be a supplement (the exact rate will vary depending on seasonality). The maximum group size is eight people.

Accommodations

The starting per person price is based on six nights of accommodations at Gran Hotel Nagari (Vigo) and Hotel Rua Villar (Santiago de Compostela), or locations of equivalent quality. If you're interested in a different level or style of accommodation, we'd be happy to discuss options and price points.

Activity Level

Travelers should feel comfortable walking three to four miles each day and remaining on their feet for longer periods of time. While we can tailor the pace and activity level to your group, keep in mind that we will be spending time on rocky shores, in small seaside villages, and while in Cambados, aboard a boat.

Arrival & Departure

Note that the trip begins in Vigo and ends in Santiago de Compostela. Vigo’s Peinador Airport has direct connections to Madrid, Barcelona, London, Paris, Lisbon, and other nearby cities, while its Guixar Railway Station has connections to Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Porto, and more. We recommend that you arrive in Vigo by 3 p.m. on Day 1 and depart from Santiago de Compostela anytime on Day 7. If you’d like to extend your stay on either end, we’re happy to arrange extra nights and provide suggestions for things to do and see on your own.
