The Camino de Santiago, or Saint James’ Way, is the result of one of Europe’s most impressive historical ‘migrations’. Though many modern pilgrims choose the so-called French Route, there are several other trails which have been used historically, including the original Camino Primitivo.
Our itinerary follows the classic pilgrims’ route from León, where you will start at the door of the Gothic Cathedral. Daily cycling tours of 27km to 55km take you through ever-changing scenery, taking in the open plains and fields of grain in Castilla, to the rolling green hills and colourful vineyards of Galicia
The popular last 100 km of the Camino de Santiago are the compulsory distance required to obtain a ‘Compostela’ pilgrimage certificate. Our self-guided itinerary follows this historic trail, St James' Way, on five walks of 18km to 29km a day, starting in Sarria and ending in Santiago de Compostela.
The Camino Sanabrés, also known as the Mozarabic Camino, can be considered a branch of the Via de la Plata, the ancient pilgrimage and communication route to link the South of the peninsula with Galicia and the North. Many pilgrims took this variant, walking along ancient paths, trading routes and Roman trails entering Galician territory through Orense.
In this short break you will get a taste of the beautiful landscapes that Spain’s green north coast offers. Three days of easy-moderate cycling, passing by the El Sueve range with the coast on your side and in the shadow of the impressive snowy peaks of the Picos de Europa.
