It should be all beautiful. Some experienced sailors say that Galicia is their favourite sailing area in the world! Anyway, let us highlight some of the stops.

Viana do Castelo

We leave Porto and probably head to the port city of Viana do Castelo. This is one of the most picturesque areas on the banks of the Lima River and our last stop in Portugal at this stage.

King Alfonso III of Portugal founded the city in 1253 and the most notable buildings in the city date back to this era. And the local folklore is also among the richest in the country.


The next stop is port Vigo on the coast of a fascinating bay, the largest city of Galicia, and the sunniest part of it.

The Cíes Islands are at the entrance to the bay - opposite to the coast of Pontevedra and the mouth of the Vigo River. It is not only a fantastic place to rest, but also a nature conservation area where cormorants, gulls and gray herons nest.

Pontevedra and surroundings

The next bay on our way is the Bay of Pontevedra, with many picturesque towns scattered along its shores.

One of them is Combarro, it has a well-equipped marina. Traditional architecture of fishermen's houses is stunning and one of a kind "orreos" - special coastal food storages. The food is delicious here as well!


Aruza is the next bay in Galicia. After passing numerous coves and islands, we can stop by in… hmmmm… say, Pobra do Caramiñal. Why? There are waterfalls and natural pools worth seeing, just three kilometers from the shore. These are the most wonderful places of 'Green Spain’.

And the exit point of the stage would be Vilagarcía de Arousa. Why? First, it’s nice. Second, it’s only 40 minutes by train from Santiago de Compostela, a city with the biggest airport in the region.
