    My husband and I are planning to walk from Lisbon to Santiago late September/October. Is it possible to hire bikes for only a couple of days as we were thinking we may try to cycle between Coimbra and Porto. Looking for advice about whether this stage is a good one to cycle? How difficult? Does...

    Is it safe to walk to the Airporto Hostel at midnight?

    I'm eagerly anticipating my first camino at the end of June. My flight to Porto arrives at midnight and I've booked a bed at the Airporto Hostel, which appears to be a short walk from the airport.

    Any Updated PDF for Accommodations on Camino Portuguese? (2017/18)

    Hello all. Planning my 4th Camino, this time the Portuguese Route ( not coastal ) for fall of 2018. Would very much appreciate any listing of accommodations along the way beginning in Porto. I have found one list, but it dates to early 2013.

    Should I learn Portuguese or Spanish

    Hi. I'm struggling to learn Spanish.... I'm thinking of doing the CP next time: should I keep going with Spanish, or would it make more sense to learn Portuguese? Thanks for your anticipated opinions.

    Portuguese Coastal Camino: Where are the guidebooks?

    Hi. We're walking from Vila Do Conde to Santiago in June. Can anyone suggest a decent detailed guide to the route? Having done the Frances, I am spoiled with the Brierley guide - I know there is a Portuguese Way version he has produced but it only takes a few pages at the end to cover the...
