Which airport should I fly to?

There are three main airports we recommend. A Coruña and Santiago de Compostela are both 1 hour drive distance. Porto in Portugal is 3 hours drive away, but flights and rental cars are cheapest there. And Porto is a lovely city to explore.

How do I get from the airport to o soño?

We highly recommend to rent a car, because of the many bays around to surf or beautiful places to hike and also connections are still not the best.

If you don´t wanna do that, you can get a Transfer with Uber Taxi or Get Transfer App:

Cheaper option is to travel by bus:

From Airport A Coruña to Ferrol:
