Luxury holidays in Galicia

When to go

Much like its Celtic cousins, Galicia gets cold and damp in winter. For the warmest and driest weather, opt for summer.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Flights from Madrid, Barcelona and other Spanish cities touch down in Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña and Vigo. Santiago receives flights (some seasonal) from European cities including London, Dublin, Milan, Frankfurt, Brussels and Zürich, and you can fly from many UK cities to A Coruña and Vigo.
  • Boats

    Ferries run from Portsmouth to Santander year-round, and from Plymouth in spring, summer and autumn; from there, it’s around a five-hour drive to Galicia.
  • Trains

    Trains run to A Coruña from several Spanish cities, including Madrid and Barcelona. Alternatively, you can cross the Portuguese border from Porto to Vigo by rail.
  • Automobiles

    Driving is the best way to see all that Galicia has to offer, especially if you’re up for a break filled with city hopping and scenic drives. You can hop on a direct bus from Madrid to all the main Galician cities, or from across the border in Porto to Vigo.
