You'll join the tall ship ATYLA in O Grove on May 4th, ready to begin an unforgettable 7 day Sail Training voyage that both begins and ends in Spain. We highly recommend you get hands on with setting the sails, steering the ship, keeping watch and more though it will be possible to join as a passenger for this voyage if you simply wish to relax onboard. No experience is required to be able to join either and the permanent crew will be on hand to make sure you know all the information you need to in good time.
A trip full of activities in the Rias Baixas area. Our Galacian Experiences voyages combine our personal development programme with select experiences in the places that we visit such as guided tours, gastronomic experiences, activities in nature and more.
This trip will start with a day cruising along the Ría de Arousa combined with a tasting of local cuisine by a specialised agency.
The day after we'll set sail towards Pobra do Caraminal. We'll spend 1.5 days sailing in the area and perhaps include a stop for a swim if the weather allows it. You'll likely also be able to get a taste of what ATYLA's Personal Development Programme is like when we do longer trips.
On the 6th of May we'll arrive in Pobra, where we'll explore the city and its culinary traditions with a Tapas city tour curated by an agency from the area.
The day after we'll have an outdoor activity (like Canyoning/Kayaking or similar), and in the afternoon/evening we'll do open doors, welcoming the people in the area to visit the ship and discover what we do. After one more night in Pobra do Caraminal, we'll set sail again towards Muros.
One and a half more days at sea (maybe with another stop for a swim along the way) and we'll arrive in Muros, where we'll have time to explore the city, for a hiking tour, and for a big dinner in town as a farewell on the last night of the trip.
All these activities are included in the price of the trip.
The trip will be both in English and Spanish to keep the diversity on board with people from different countries, but people that speak very little English can also join us. The team on board will help keep the communication fluid between everyone, and we’ll work on tools to communicate in multicultural environments.
If you have time, make sure to consider joining our trip back to Bilbao too, for a different experience with 3 days of non-stop sailing.
The voyage price includes: 3 meals a day and your own private bunk; pick up service from Santiago de Compostela to the ship (Including a stop in the airport, please let us know that you'll require this after making your booking); the sailing cruise and tasting of local specialties in O Grove; the Tapas city tour in Pobra do Caraminal; the canyoning/kayaking activity or similar activity in Pobra do Caraminal; the hiking activity in Muros' area; the restaurant dinner in Muros; certificate of participation in Atyla’s Personal Development Programme; insurance for your time on board (see terms and conditions); and an official Atyla T-shirt.
Your journey aboard this beautiful 2 Masted Staysail Schooner will end in Muros where you'll disembark on May 11th.
