Description

Spend a late afternoon exploring a more remote coastal area of Vigo Bay outside the hustle and bustle of the city! This Vigo tour takes you beyond the city and across Vigo Bay on a local ferry boat, to reach the small fishing village of Cangas. During the 20-minute ride your guide will explain the view and history of the area — as well as how the fishermen catch all that delicious fish and seafood!  Upon arrival at the Port of Cangas, you’ll take a short taxi ride to the starting point for your coastal walk along a four kilometer trail. The scenery will be of gorgeous golden-sand beach coves, dotted between a ruggedly handsome coastline. From the trail you’ll also see the Cies Islands Nature Park. Once you get back into town, you’ll see all the charming small fishing boats at the port, and stop at a trendy local tavern to enjoy some Galician tapas and wines. You will try four different kinds: Pulpo (octopus), Tetilla cheese, Croquetas, and pepper, and of course they will be paired with local wines like the famed Albariño and Godello whites, and the Mencia red. They’re all young wines, but with plenty of personality. You will also learn about the different wines of the Galicia region.  The tour will end at the Port of Cangas, where the ferry departs back for Vigo. From there, it’s up to you! If you decide you want to stay a while in the village, you can do so (just note that the last ferry leaves at 22:00). Otherwise, hop on board and head back to the city to see more of Vigo.
