CAMINO DE SANTIAGO

Sarria. Portomarin. Palas Do Rei. Melide . Arzua . Amenal . Santiago de Compostela

The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage is an enjoyable and achievable way to experience the beautiful landscapes of northern Spain while taking an inner journey.

 

With stunning scenery and historic landmarks, this is a walk that will stay with you long after the trip has ended. You'll explore the many trails and villages that make this pilgrimage so unique and revered. Take in the breathtaking views and immerse yourself in the culture as you make your way to Santiago de Compostela.

 

If you’re looking to take on your own pilgrimage – along a route filled with beautiful countryside and rustic villages of Northern Spain – start here, at the Camino de Santiago.

 

On this eight-day trip, complete the last 60 miles of the pilgrimage route to Santiago and receive a "compostela" at the finish to prove your accomplishment. Refuel with tasty Spanish food and take the time to stop and smell the flowers – it’s active but at a slower, more picturesque pace.
