Looking 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 region

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.
