I have never walked the Portuguese route but I have asked to make recommendations to someone who has 5 days to walk. She wants to start from Porto and walk for 3 days and then bus it to closer to Santiago so as to spend the last 2 days walking to Santiago. Please can someone suggest an itinerary based on her time constraints. Thanks very much.

If she wants to get the Compostella in Santiago as well, she could try to walk from the Spanish border, from Tui. That's the requirement: 100km and 2 stamps a day. Take a train/bus from Porto to Valenca, cross over to Tui there and start from there. It could be done in 5 days. Another option I'd take: walk from Porto in 3 days to Viana do Castello along the ocean, then there is a train line from there via Valenca that goes in the direction of Santiago. Check if it works and the timetable, as if it does she can get off near Caldas de Reis or even at Padron, and walk for 1 or 2 days from there to Santiago.

Walking out of Porto hardly sounds like fun. She will lose a day travelling, notbthe easiest thing when crossing borders. Walk fom Tui or even Pontevedra allowing time to get from porto to pontevedra
