for a unique vacation to offer your clients? How does
a Special Cultural & Gastronomical Sailing
Adventure sound? Our new Camino
de Santiago by Sea tour weaves in and out of the
picturesque Rias (Estuaries) of Galicia's Rias Baixas
The journey starts in Vigo, the most important fishing port in
Europe, which has a beautiful Ria holding the secrets of sunken
treasure and historic battles. Being an important
fishing port it is obvious that the area is blessed with an
abundance of the freshest fish & seafood, on this trip we
will get a chance to savor many fish & seafood dishes
in the best restaurants of the region, and also catered lunches
when eating aboard the yacht. Talking about food I can't
forget to mention that this area of Galicia is also a wine
region, bearing the same name, Rias Baixas. Here can found
excellent full-bodied white wines made of the Albariño grape variety.
Albariño wines are known as the "Wines From
the Sea" because they go so well with fish &
seafood. In the past few years thanks to wine writers like Michael
Franz who writes for the Washington Post, these wines have become more
internationally known, and now can be purchased in America and
other countries in the world.
In the Rias Baixas there are many beaches of un-touched
beauty, golden soft sand and clean blue water. While navigating we will stop to take a swim in many of these
waters, some where the tourists can't even get to by land.
Also we will visit many of the small Island off the shore,
like the Cies Islands know as "The Island of
the Gods" and the Ons Islands, actually just
recently these islands and few smaller ones close by, have been declared as a
national park called "The
Archipelago Atlantic Islands National Park" . Here
can be found all types of wild Flora & Fauna,
excellent for nature hikes & walks.
Our sea portion of this journey comes to an end by following
around the Ria de Arousa, where according to tradition,
was where the body of the Apostle St. James (Santiago)
was brought to Galicia after his martyrdom in Jerusalem in the
year 44 AD. In the village of Padron it is said to be the
place where the tomb of St. James was discovered, from here it
was brought to where now the Cathedral of Santiago de
Compostela stands. What a great way to finish to this gastronomical,
cultural, nautical, sailing adventure by standing in front of
this outstanding Pilgrimage Cathedral.
