4 Road-Trips in Galicia

It’s time to decide what kind of mobility you would prefer during your travel. If you are gonna stay in a fixed place, organising excursions from there, or you would prefer a road-trip, whether circular or not. 

Anyway, we are dealing with planning an itinerary that could allow us to know as much territory possible, optimising your time. 

Your choice will depend on how many days you have, and if you have the possibility or not to come back to Galicia. In case you are visiting Galicia for once in a lifetime, we would recommend you a basic tour. But if you think you will come again, then consider to split the map in 2, North and South. This way you will know both well. 

Of course, if you are going to come many times, you can go all over every single corner of our geography, enjoying the different faces of our landscape, history and ethnography. 

Here you have some suggested itineraries for 7, 10, 15 and 30 days. You can use them like that, or as a template to organise your own itinerary. 

You will find some Weekend trips here.
