Porto
Hi, I’m currently on the Porto Literal route and was considering doing the Spiritual route and have read that the boat trip is really wonderful, however it has been mentioned that if I take the boat then I won’t be able to get my certificate. Is this correct?

Many thanks for your help

The Variante Espiritual is beautiful, and could well be one of the highlights of your camino.

The river section, sometime also known as the Via Crucis, starts in Vilanova de Arousa and goes to Pontecesures on the Río Ulla, to be followed by the short walk from Pontecesures to Padron.


Taking the river section does qualify towards gaining the Compestella (certificate), and the operators will stamp your pilgrim passport.


There are 3 operators on this route, each departing at slightly different times, with departure times influenced by the prevalent tides.
In no order of preference, as the prices from each operator are the same, currently 20.00€ per person one way only, these are the operators
La Translatio / La Barca del Pergrino / Naviera Bahia Sub

Remember that departure / sailing times vary as they are dependent on the tides.
Hope that this might assist

The boat ride (and SV) is fine for the Compostela as long as you include Vigo in your itinerary, which begins the all-critical 100 km distance to Santiago.
