Spanish Camino de Santiago combination.


Spanish Camino de Santiago

 

Discover the Camino de Santiago along this picturesque region of Spain on foot, as seen in the film “The Way”.

Our fully supported journey is through the most picturesque parts, starting from Leon, one of the greatest cities in Spain and finishing in Santiago de Compostella, from the central high plateau and crossing the hilly lands of Galicia. One of the most beautiful parts of the Camino, and of course the most rewarding!

Our Camino de Santiago walk is approx 140 kms, and in order to attain the official Compostella you must walk the last 100km unassisted. Our tour does include that as well as the opportunity to visit other nearby areas along the Camino so you can enjoy the Spanish countryside and small towns that are off the beaten track. We also include a day trip to Finisterre and walk along the cliff moorland as a fitting end to this journey.

The Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago – the Camino de Santiago as it is called in Spanish, or “The Way of St. James” is a journey of the soul and spirit, that takes the traveller in the footsteps of millions of others over a millennium. Today, the Camino – “One of the world’s 2 or 3 great journeys”, according to American writer James Michener – is undergoing a renaissance unlike anything known since the 13th century peak of the pilgrimage. Modern-day ‘pilgrims’, like their forerunners, come from all over, but nowadays those with purely religious motives are joined by lovers of adventure, art, history and legends, all with a desire to take part in an experience that is unique in the modern Western world.

Join this amazing fully supported walk carrying only a small daypack with a small group of women.
