Project Description

Experience this extraordinary seven day journey along the coast of Rias Baixas in Galicia, on a comfortable modern sailing boat. During this seven day tour, you and your fellow 8 passengers (maximum) will experience some of Northern Spain’s best gastronomy, wines, culture and sights. You will sail to the regions of Rías de Arousa, Pontevedra and Vigo that together form a unique configuration in Spain perfect for sailing holidays. Hundred of beaches, dozens of fishing villages and a great deal of marinas make Rias Baixas as an astonishing place for sailing.

On this itinerary, you will also sail the National Park of the Atlantic Islands (Cíes, Ons and Sálvora). Atlantic nature, overwhelming views and quiet lonely beaches make up parts of this astonishing destination.

Arguably one of the most desired sailing routes along the Spanish coastline and one which appears often on every sailor’s ‘must do list’ – this is one journey we are sure will not disappoint.

Our suggested itinerary to inspire you:

On arrival to Baiona, we visit the old town and have dinner at the Parador´s restaurant.  On March 1, 1493, the Pinta, one of the ships from Columbus’ voyage to discover the New World returned to Europe and arrived in Baiona, making the town’s port the first to receive news of the discovery of America. A replica of the ship can be visited in the port, and the event is celebrated every year. In 1585 the inhabitants of Baiona repelled an attempt to take the town by the privateer Francis Drake.
