The Way tours

our history

The Way Tours is a Travel Agency that aspires to be one of the most inspiring and innovative walking and cycling tour companies. Based in Spain and Portugal, we develop our routes from our own backyard with firsthand knowledge of the land and its people.

The Way tours team thrive on making travel dreams come true. By arranging everything from hand-picked accommodation and hassle-free luggage transfers and providing informative itineraries, we aim to give you unique and memorable travel experiences.  

Specialized in hiking and cycling routes designed for all levels of fitness, and getaways providing unique cultural and gastronomic experiences, whilst exploring uncrowded destinations exhibiting special natural and cultural value. 

We are specialists of El Camino de Santiago, providing guided or self-guided routes, for individuals or small groups. Our itineraries are designed to measure, customised for you with the duration, dates and locations you desire. We offer planned tours with an expert guide and minibus where you will live the experience of the Camino in a more comfortable and still meaningful way.

Our Team loves getting to know our travellers and connecting with the passion we all share for discovery and exploring the world.

We value the relationships we build and a friendly, personalized service is a hallmark of our company. We are thrilled to have a loyal repeat customer base, which we treasure as a true definition of success.

We care about having a positive impact on the people and places we visit, and believe that our travellers also benefit greatly from the relationships we have established with our local producers and suppliers.

Every trip is a hand-crafted artisan labour of love, tailored for the  traveller looking for a unique and unforgettable experience. We look for itineraries that bring a smile to your face as you are  walking or wheeling along with the sun (or rain) on your back.
