The season starts in Gijón, and from there make stops in the towns of Navia, Ribadeo, Foz, Viveiro, Ortigueira, Cariño and Ferrol. Accompanied by a multilingual guide throughout the journey, travelers will discover the particularities of the places visited also coach journeys will be made when railroads do not reach itineraries interesting points, as Mondoñedo, Cape Ortega lSan Andres de Teixido, A Coruña and the city of Santiago de Compostela.
