Only 8 more sleeps until our adventures in Spain begin!. First we will be walking from Baiona to Santiago de Compostela . We plan on doing this portion in 6 days. Can anyone recommend the best way to break this down. So far we are thinking of Baiona to Vigo = 25km but after that would like to keep it within 20 a day.

From Vigo to Santiago is about 99,6 km. In theory this means five <20km. stages. But from where the towns and the albergues are, it doesn't work that way. Maybe this is an option:

Including the stage from Baiona to Vigo it's 6 days.

Instead of walking to Padrón, you might walk from Caldas de Reis to Iria Flavia: 19,6 km. From Iria Flavia to Santiago: 23,3 km. Or walk from Caldas de Reis to A Escravitude: 24,4 km. From A Escravitude to Santiago: 18,5 km.

It is possible to break it up into < 20 km. stages, but that would take a day extra and two short stages. For example:

Including the stage from Baiona to Vigo it's 7 days.

I hope this helps to make up your mind.

Thank you for mapping this out for me. I was trying to avoid the longer hike from Padron to Santiago. However I think your first suggestion makes the most sense due to our time constraints.

On the Padron to Santiago day you're ahead if you stay at the Albergue at Iria De Flavia it's right on the Camino route . Also if you can send on some of your gear to Santiago (maybe one bag between your group) then that longer final day isn't too arduous.

Thank you for your suggestions. It would be nice to lighten our load at this point.

We were three senior ladies who walked from Porto in May. I had a Packable holdall 75L which we started using only on the Spanish section when there were some steeper walking days ahead. We all put in the holdall our heavy gear that we were didn't need with us during the day. We sent on this one bag via tui trans and we carried our comfortable rucksacks with supplies for the day.

Albergue Cruce De Iria is the albergue on the outskirts of Padron. Hector owns it. Go to his 4 pm talk it's very good. After that visit the church for the sello, walk back into town (not far without a rucksack) visit Pilgrim church (another sello here); then for to the tourist office and you will receive your Padron certificate. Hector will explain all this.
Very nice albergue we slept in the room for 6 at the top.

It is an easy walk from Padron to Santiago. It is not a very nice walk though. Not as bad as walking into Burgos or some other stretches like in and out of Gijon but it a lot of walking on pavement and suburbs.

I don't remember that last day Padron to SdeC being too much pavement walking. I took some beautiful rural photos en route so it wasn't all suburban. At least there were some coffee stops and we had lunch in Milladoiro.

If I could I would walk through the woods all day long. However i will willingly embrace the trail as I find it.

Maybe it is that there is so much pavement/road walking on the CP that it just seemed like alot to me.

I may think differently once I walk it. I am just excited about our upcoming trip.
