Overview

The Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) is a journey that has been undertaken since almost 12 centuries ago, by pilgrims that came then from every corner of Europe and nowadays by travelers from all over the world. It is a route with so many attractions that it should undoubtedly be included in every bike rider’s wish list. Today, the itinerary goes far beyond its religious original meaning. In almost 800 kilometers (497 miles) through the country, the route changes constantly, going through different regions , finding great cultural contrasts in every aspect: people’s traditions and customs, architectural, gastronomic and scenic.

In Spain there are different ways of Santiago that come from almost any corner of the Iberian peninsula. The one we offer you this time is the French Camino, from the historical city of Burgos, the most common and followed by most of the people, traveling approximately its final 500 kilometers (310 miles).

Following the “yellow arrow” that indicates the right way, will take you to discover amazing places, old and fascinating churches, and breathtaking landscapes; it will also give you the chance to try the tasty and diverse gastronomy and wines of all the regions the route goes through.

The great feeling of arriving at the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral will be a memory to take with you forever. It will certainly be a moment to appreciate and understand the deep spiritual sense you have probably heard about.

As an addition, if you wish, we can help you to complete the experience going up to Finisterre, following 90 kilometers (56 miles) to complete the three actions by which the ancient pilgrims purified their souls.

Itinerary

Day 1ARRIVAL DAY WITH FREE TIME TO EXPLORE THE ANCIENT CITY OF BURGOS

Someone of our staff will pick you up at the train station or airport and take you to the hotel. Later you should obtain your pilgrim card with time enough to discover this ancient city which is a very important place to understand the Spanish history with plenty of fascinating places to discover

Day 2 THE ROUTE GETS FLATTER SO YOU CAN CONCENTRATE IN THE PEACE AND BEAUTY AROUND YOU (81 kms + 457 mts.)

The Camino receives you in a kindly way since the route for this day is quite flat and easy though not short. You will find just a few towns and a few people, a perfect situation to concentrate on the inspiring Castilian landscape and take it all in. Castrojeriz, the climb to the Alto de Mostelares with its endless views, and a stunning Romanic church in Frómista will be some of the highlights of this stage. The hotel for today is situated in an ancient monastery from 10th century where many councils and courts were held in Carrión de los Condes

Day 3YOU CHANGE OF CASTILIAN PROVINCE BUT NOT THE PEACEFULLY LANDSCAPE ARRIVING TO THE HISTORICAL CITY OF LEON (90 kms. + 377 mts.)

Castile is an enchanting region because of the abundant amount of history that awaits in every corner. It will probably be here where you will feel the magic of the Camino more intensely. At the ancient Sahugún, the way leaves Palencia to enter into the second Castilian province, León. The name was originally given to its capital, where you will finish today’s journey. In this city you will enjoy countless historic and picturesque places such as its world famous gothic cathedral and the Plaza Mayor (main square)

Day 4THE EASIEST DAY OF THE TRIP WITH THE AMAZING BRIDGE OF HOSPITAL DE ORBIGO AND THE MONUMENTAL CITY OF ASTORGA (50 kms. + 270 mts.)

After leaving León, the route will take you to Hospital de Órbigo, which you will enter through its awesome ancient bridge. You will then head to Astorga to reach the end of this shorter ride than usual. Given the fact that you should arrive early in the day, if you wish, we recommend you to have a special lunch to try the most typical dish of this area. After lunch, you will have time to leisurely enjoy all this impressive historical town has to offer.

Day 5THE LANDSCAPE GETS GREENER AND MORE ROLLING WITH TWO REMARKABLE STOPS IN YOUR WAY (76 kms. + 837 mts.)

After some relaxed days, today you will challenge youself climbing to the highest point of the Camino: La Cruz de Ferro. Then the path will lead you to El Bierzo, another fantastic winemaking area. The old town of Ponferrada with its imposing castle will amaze you for sure. At the end of this day, the quaint town of Villafranca del Bierzo will welcome you for overnight. The day has been demanding, but definitely rewarding!

Day 6YOU ENTER INTO THE FASCINATING GALICIA WHERE ALMOST EVERYTHING BECOME DIFFERENT (65 kms. + 1213 mts.)

Today you enter the last region of the Camino, Galicia, that will welcome you with the most demanding climb of the entire trip; O Cebreriro. This place really is worth the effort. After that segment, some lush woods will show you all their charm and beauty. The inspiring views will make for magical, and perhaps even mystical, moments, like the appearance of the monastery of Samos. The day ends in Sarria at a hotel located by a river with summer swimming pool

Day 7LUSH WOODS, THE AMAZING MONASTERY OF SAMOS AND THE MAGICAL GALICIAN HILLY LANDSCAPE (73 kms. + 1171 mts.)

During this stretch of the trip you will probably encounter the famous fog that nestles between the Galician hills almost every morning. Always bountiful, Galicia will give you memorable landscapes. At Melide you can enjoy one of Galicia’s favorite dishes, octopus. To continue your immersion in its culture, you will lodge in a “Pazo”, a manor house of 18th century located in the middle of the countryside, the perfect place to relax and get ready for the final day!

Day 8SANTIAGO FINALLY APPEARS IN FRONT OF YOU SO YOU CAN FINALLY ENJOY THE END OF THE TOUR AND THE ARRIVAL MOMENT (45kms. 587 mts.)

Today´s route will be shorter; Santiago is so close that your thoughts might wonder ahead. The arrival to the Cathedral of Santiago will be an unforgettable moment that will remind you why you decided to make this journey. Later in the day, you should pick up your “Compostela”, the certificate that proves that the pilgrimage along the Camino has been completed
