Additional Information

Be part of a thousand-year-old pilgrimage—the Camino de Santiago—across a landscape alive with legends. Our specially designed journey showcases the very best landscapes and villages along this famous trail—and we bring you all the way to Finisterre, mythical Kilometer 0 on the trail, to make the traditional barefoot walk on the beach, as pilgrims have done for centuries. En route we are welcomed in our carefully selected hotels, including two nights at the acclaimed Parador dos Reis Católicos in Santiago. Our expert Trip Leaders bring the history and heritage of the Camino alive with every step. Buen camino!

Itinerary

Days 1-2
Burgos / Léon / Astorga 
Meeting in medieval Burgos, we join other pilgrims to hike the Camino de Santiago from Hornillos del Camino to the remote village of Hontanas. A journey across the sun-splashed plains of Castile brings us to the engaging city of Léon, and we explore its soaring Gothic cathedral before heading to the walled city of Astorga. 

Days 3-5
Cruz de Hierro / O Cebreiro / Portomarín 
Entering beautiful Galicia, we enjoy interactions with fellow pilgrims as we hike to the Cruz de Hierro, the iron cross where for a thousand years, pilgrims have left a stone from home to make a wish (be sure to bring yours!). In mountaintop O Cebreiro, we visit a small church whose chalice is linked in legend with the Holy Grail. Some of the most spectacular stretches of the entire pilgrim trail are on our hike to the whitewashed village of Portomarín.

Days 6-9
Galician Countryside / Santiago de Compostela / Finisterre 
Following trails through hamlets and farms flanked by ancient grain silos, we arrive in Santiago, where we explore the extraordinary limestone cathedral said to contain the remains of St. James and attend the noon mass with a jostling crowd of pilgrims from around the world. We complete our pilgrimage with a hike to Finisterre, following tradition by walking the last part of the trail barefoot along the beach. Depart on Day 9.
