Hi everyone!
I'm finding it impossible to book a flight frim madrid to my starting point in vigo in May. It seems 3 weeks in May have NO flights. Does anyone know why? What's the next quickest way to get there?
Thank you in advance!

Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

€83,-
Hmm, I'm seeing flights. Trying searching on 'google flights'. When I do so, Iberia, Air Europa and Ryan Air are indicating direct flights.
 
Yes, I just looked at Google Flights and I see the same 3 week gap. I tried searching on Iberia and they are also not showing flights. I looked for some "news", but don't see anything right now. A mystery...

Looks like about 3 or 4 trains per day Madrid to Vigo. It is about 4.5 hours.
 
€2,-/day will present your project to thousands of visitors each day. All interested in the Camino de Santiago.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I really appreciate you. I guess I'll take a bus. Or would you think flying into santiagi and taking a taxi to vigo is better?
Just take a train from Madrid to Vigo. Depending on the train it takes about 4-5 hours, which will be about the same as or less than flying via Santiago, and it’s more convenient and probably cheaper.
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
I have flights booked and paid for from London Stansted direct to Vigo on 30 May with Ryanair. My flight is no longer showing on the Ryanair website and, in fact, there are no flights showing on this route for the 3 weeks 6 May to 30 May. Having just spent the best part of an hour queueing and then chatting online with Ryanair they have reassured me that as I have not heard otherwise my flight is on schedule. And if a flight does not appear on their website it will be because the flight is sold out. I cannot have a refund because my flight is going ahead as planned.
So I can now totally relax knowing that despite the reports by reputable Spanish newpapers and the absence of flights on websites I will be flying in to Vigo on the 30th of May.
What could possibly go wrong.
:rolleyes:
 
It is a beautiful and comfortable trip by train. My husband and I did it last May...roundtrip.

LOL good luck. Maybe we'll see each on the train.
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

€46,-
Get a spanish phone number with Airalo. eSim, so no physical SIM card. Easy to use app to add more funds if needed.

Hi. You could fly to Porto and take a bus from the airport directly to Vigo. I've taken the bus before. Easy peasy!
