Itinerary

The tour starts

At 10:00 a.m. from our office, please be there 15 minutes before. The address is Rúa das Casas Reaís, 31 (3 minutes from the cathedral and next to the Porta do Camiño, at the entrance to the old part of the city, where the French way passes). The Pick – Up service (only in Santiago de Compostela) can only be offered by some hotels and always with prior notice (there are hotels where the bus cannot go due to city laws). If the hotels are not in the list, it is better to contact us to find out if the service is possible. In addition, another possibility can be (if it is possible) that a staff member can pick you up from the hotel in advance.

 

Natural Park “A Barosa”

We will visit an enchanted place, where there are a great variety of laurel, chestnut and oak trees, crossed by the river Agra and by several waterfalls, not to mention the spectacular mills built in the 12th century. This oasis of peace is perfect for relaxing, spending time in tranquillity and being able to feel the sensations that can give you the real and genuine Galicia, rural, calm and away from aggressive tourism.

 

Enogastronomic tour in a winery of Albariño

We will take a walk through the vineyards of a very prestigious Albariño, the one of Rías Baixas, among the best in the world; it is not for nothing that they sell and serve it in all Europe, Asia and the United States.

We will have not only the opportunity to know closely the production of this excellent wine, since for the participants will also be included the tasting of 3 wines of the denomination Rias Baixas in good company.

 

Shrine of “la Lanzada”

This mystical place, established in the 9th century, deserves to be known in depth, accompanied by a beautiful walk. Its importance is not only related to its history, but also to its location, on the shores of one of the most admirable beaches in Galicia. In all of this, we cannot absolutely forget that this temple welcomes and offers a ritual definitely popular in the light of the moon, which makes it even more unique in its genre.

 

Combarro

To get to this picturesque village, among the most beautiful in Spain, located on the banks of the Pontevedra estuary, we will cross part of the bay of Poio.

All this beauty is conferred by a giant rock on which it is built, by the hórreos of which it is surrounded, by the houses overlooking the sea and by several stone crosses typical of Galicia, called « Cruceiros », which are on the site.

Touring the characteristic streets and squares of this place, you have, therefore, the possibility of making a real and authentic journey through the time, as well as visiting an area of great ecological value.

A Toxa

This relaxing island, famous for the production of soap and for its hot springs, is located in an area called « Red Natura 2000 », but it does not end here: we can find a small museum of the old soap factory and a chapel completely covered with shells.

 

Cruise with Albariño wine, mussels, drinks and shots

A tour over the sea, through which you will admire and face directly with the production of mussels, oysters and scallops; we will make different stops to contemplate the watering holes and then to be able to taste steamed mussels in great quantity accompanied by one of the best local Albariño wines (Condes de Albarei) and by shots of Crema de Orujo.
