Vigo airport to Tui

#1
Hi All! -

I plan on walking the Camino Portuguese in 2007 from Tui (Tuy). Does anyone know the best way to get from the Vigo airport to Tui??? Is it possible to go to Tui without going into Vigo first?

Thanks!

Hi John P,

Welcome to the forum.

The stretch Vigo - Tui, is not my strong point. I have driven the stretch Vigo - Portugal border several times. I would guess Vigo Airport to Tui is about a 30-40 minute drive if you choose a taxi (maybe 40-50 euros, my guess).

It looks like the bus fro Santiago to Porto does not stop at the Vigo airport. See here:

I had a look at the bus company that runs busses in Vigo, see here:
http://www.vitrasa.es

..but it looks like they only have busses from the airport to down-town Vigo. See map here:
http://www.vitrasa.es/vitrasaA4_2005.pdf

I would take the bus down-town and try and see if you can catch a bus to Tui, with plan b being the taxi.

Sorry for not being able to help more.

Welcome to Santiago!

Thanks

Thanks Guys -

We'd like to start as early as possible. So since I don't want to gobble up time going into Vigo & out again (we'll already have a long flight from the northwest US, to Madrid, and then to Vigo) - I'll probably hire a taxi and look at the 40 to 50 euros as part of the travel costs. My wife has some limited physical ability, so we need extra time (compared to most). The Portuguese route seems the best since there are fewer strenuous sections (mountains, required long days). We'll be probably launch the third week of September (in 2006, not 2007 like I said before).

Again, thanks for your help - :D

the mountains in Galicia are in the east on the Castillean border, so if you start to the west of them - say, Sarria or Ourense - none of the routes is particularly strenuous. However, the Portuguese route is the most populated, so there are more towns and hence accommodation. I found it scenically the most attractive of the routes in Galicia I've walked.
