Galicia, located in the uttermost northwest of Spain, was considered the end of the world – Finisterrae – until the discovery of the Americas. Up to now, this remote part of the Iberian peninsula is widely untroubled by the effects of mass-tourism and therefor still considered an insider tip.
The Camino Surfcamp Galicia is situated on a small, well-kept campsite and offers different accommodation-options. The bathroom facilities are right next to the camp and get cleaned on a daily basis. There is a small supermarket and a restaurant right next to the Surfcamp as well as two more supermarkets and several Cafés and restaurants in walking distance.
If you still got some power left after the surf-sessions, you might burn off your excess energy with Table-Tennis, Indo-Boarding, Slack-Lining, Skateboarding, or you get yourself on one of our Mountainbikes to explore the fascinating hinterland of Valdoviño. Also, you can let your mind wander while you relax in one of the hammocks or get connected to the “outside-world” on the Camp-Computer with Internet-connection.
Our nutritious surf dinner provides for your physical well-being and in the evenings you can set out on discovering the pubs and bars of Valdoviño or chill-out in the common-tent, watching a video in our surf-cinema… Hang loose!
Glamping = glamorous camping. Don’t expect some shitty-small-plastic-Iglou-cave but be prepared to find the perfect Beduin-luxus-glamping-temple. Built upon a robust and leveled wooden floor, you can stand up inside the tent. There are two beds readily prepared with fresh sheets and a pillow as well as plenty of storage area for your luggage. There is power-connection available as well as a stylish, moroccan bedside lamp. You just have to bring your own sleeping-bag (or rent one of ours).REQUEST BOOK NOW

SURF’N’ROLL MUSIC-WORKSHOP: 1.9 – 8.9.2019
The Surf’n’Roll workshop enjoys highest reputation: Christoph Mallinger and his team (Chris Kronreif, Andreas Tentschert, all very experienced and professional musicians) together with the Caminosurf team will mix the right Surf’n’Roll cocktail at the Camino Surfcamp Galicia for you. Ingredients: Music, surfing, fun, rhythm, improvisation, timing, nature, sun, sea, waves, sounds, motivation, soul, spirit, training, enthusiasm, passion…
Surf’n’Roll brings together surfing and music – a combination rooted deeply within the ancient polynesian tradition of waveriding and nowadays even known to the furthest landlocked longshore lubber thanks to Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ USA” and Jack Johnson, to name a few. In practicing both, you will experience the positive influence of a clear sense of rhythm when learning new sequences of motion, which is just one of the most obvious effects.
Music and surfing are inexhaustible sources of inspiration and motivation, sharing the one most important factor: both are heaps of fun! And this is what every Surf’n’Roll workshop is built around.
This workshop at Camino Surfcamp Galicia is tailored specifically to the needs and wants of you, the participants. Instrumentalists and vocalists of all levels are welcome.
We will work on known and famous songs and standards, and will offer you tips and tricks to write your own songs, arrange them for ensemble and improvise over them.
Summer, surfing, beach and Yoga – what a great combination. Start your day with more energy and be stronger in the water. After the surf-sessions you relax and sooth your tense and tired muscled during our extended yoga sessions. You put your body and mind to rest and as your nose gets rid of the last nose-drippings you are mentally and physically ready for the next wave.
Camino Surfcamp Galicia’s yoga classes are designed for everybody to experience his personal limits. A step-by-step introduction for Beginners with detailed explanations of the exercises ease the entry for newcomers. Also advanced Yogi will benefit from the courses through demanding variations and combinations. The Yoga-schedule is adjusted to the surf-course time-table.
Our Shiatsu therapies are well sought after – especially after a long day of surfing, the therapist can restore your bodily balance through pressing the meridians, compressions and extensions or with amendatory techniques
