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 its almost 800 kilometers (497 miles) through the country, the route changes constantly, going through different regions and diverse Spanish provinces. While traversing the many different regions of Spain, you will find great cultural contrasts in every aspect: people’s traditions and customs, architectural, gastronomic and scenic.
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. These reasons make this an exciting trip, and that is why we have strived to provide you with the opportunity to enjoy as an optional service the typical cuisine and wines from each region at the end of every day.
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.
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, and goes by its final 500 kilometers (310 miles).
As an addition, if you wish, we can help you to complete the experience going up to Finisterre, to complete the three actions by which the ancient pilgrims purified their souls at the wild and beautiful Langosteira Beach: bath in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, burn the clothes worn during the pilgrimage, and watch the sunset.

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 in Burgos. 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 2THE ROUTE BEGINS SO ARE THE EMOTIONS, ROUTE THROUGHOUT CASTILE FIELDS TO CARRION DE LOS CONDES (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 short but intense climb to the Alto de Mostelares with its endless views, and the stunning Romanic church of San Martín de Tours de Frómista will be some of the highlights of this stage. The hotel will host you today is situated in an ancient monastery from X century where many councils and courts were held at 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 kms.)

Castilla is an enchanting region because of the abundant amount of history that awaits you in every corner. It will probably be here where you will feel the magic of the Camino more intensely. At the ancient Sahugún you will leave the Province of Palencia to enter into the last of the Castilian provinces, 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 AMAZING BRIDGE OF HOSPITAL DE ORBIGO AND THE MONUMENTAL ASTORGA IN THE EASIEST DAY OF THE TRIP (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 short ride. 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, an ancient and delicious recipe that has been welcoming pilgrims for ages: the cocido Maragato. 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 leave Castile and enter the last region of the Camino, Galicia. This segment will welcome you with the toughest climb of the entire trip; we remind you that we can get a taxi for you if you feel that you need a little lift! Though challenging, this place really is worth the effort. After that segment, some lush woods will show you all their charm and beauty. The day ends in Sarria at a cozy hotel located by the Sarria River; the relaxing summer swimming pool will help you rest and recover from the day’s activities

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. The inspiring views will make for magical, and perhaps even mystical, moments. The appearance of the monastery at Samos will be another great moment of this trip. We recommend you to stop at Melide to have lunch at a typical restaurant, to enjoy one of Galicia’s favorite dishes: Octopus. A manor house of 18th century located in the middle of the countryside will be 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.)

And finally the experience has taken you to a successful end! The route will be shorter, though very similar to that of the last days; 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 in the first place. If there were any hard moments throughout the journey, this one will definitely make up for it. Later in the day, you should pick up your “Compostela”, the certificate that proves that the pilgrimage along the Camino has been completed

Day 9BREAKFAST AND END OF THE TRIP. GOOD LUCK FOREVER PEREGRINO!
