TRAVEL TO O GROVE, GALICIA, SPAIN

It is very easy to reach O Grove and we suggest that people use public transport during their trip to O Grove in order to contribute to reducing the carbon footprint.

There are three international airports close to O Grove: Vigo (65 km), Santiago de Compostela (80 km), and Porto (Portugal, 200 km).

  • From the airport, in Santiago or Vigo, you will need to take a city bus or a taxi to the bus-station or to the railway-station (you can buy the ticket directly in the bus, in cash).
  • From the airport of Porto, you will need to take first a bus to the city centre and then a bus to the Vigo bus-station (info at https://www.checkmybus.co.uk/, for example).

Then, you have different options to come to O Grove:

  • take a direct bus to O Grove (from the bus station – only from Santiago and Pontevedra)
  • take a first bus to Pontevedra and another bus from Pontevedra - O Grove
  • take a train to Pontevedra and then a bus Pontevedra - O Grove.

Please check the timetables before your departure: http://www.monbus.es/ - http://www.renfe.com/ 

Note: On the website, www.monbus.es, if you write as a departure, for example, Vigo, and destination, O Grove, the website will show you just the direct buses, so you will have to check separately the buses from Vigo to Pontevedra and then from Pontevedra to O Grove to see all possibilities.

  • From any of the three airports you can also rent a car from the many car rental companies.
