Overview Itinerary Pricing


This Camino route takes you to the last stage of the French Way, the famous Camino Frances, walking 111kms in a week. This stage from Sarria to Santiago, Spain is the most popular among pilgrims and perfectly captures the essence of the Camino de Santiago.

Meet fellow pilgrims, discover local traditions and get your pilgrim passport stamped as you walk through woodlands, farmland and rustic hamlets. Once in Santiago, get your "Compostela" certificate and explore the magic of the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We offer guided group tours on set departure dates, and also private self-guided tours starting on any day of the year. The self-guided tours can be customized (itinerary and accommodations), and we can arrange a private guide for you. The hike can be stretched to 9 days.

All treks include luggage transfer, so you just carry a day pack with the things you need for the day.


Stroll through the luscious green Galician countryside in the company of your group and our friendly, knowledgeable English speaking guide who will give you an in depth insight into the unique history of the Camino as well as the sights, flora and fauna of Galicia.
