To ensure that you fully enjoy your Camino, you should be ready to walk for up to four hours.  Our walk will be indoors and out, in all weather conditions, up and down hills, and with a small day pack for essentials and water. While on the Camino, you can transform just a bit of preparation into a life-changing adventure and delightful memories.

*Journeying to and from the Camino

Select the best arrival and departure options for you. Perhaps you would like to arrive a day or two before the Luther Camino Adventure begins. An early arrival allows ample time to recover from jet lag and make the most of the first few days of our adventure.

Several convenient flight options are available. Consider requesting an "open jaw" ticket from your travel agent for your flight into Lisbon and out of Porto.

Do you have extra time and flexibility? Perhaps you would like to choose a round trip flight into and out of Lisbon. After the Camino, take a train journey or low-cost flight from Porto back to Lisbon with perhaps an additional overnight before heading home.

Porto has good connections throughout Europe. Consider flying home via a number of other European cities, and extending your stay for even more adventures.
