Travel until
21 Sep 2022

Follow in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims on the centuries-old Camino Francés (or French Way), the most famous of all Camino de Santiago routes. Take a once-in-a-lifetime, 16-day small-group walking tour (max. 16 travellers) from the beautiful city of León, Spain through the picturesque Castile-León region to the ancient splendour of Santiago de Compostela, a city imbued with a rich history and the resting place of St. James.

The Camino Francés is by far the most popular, travelled and documented of all Camino routes. A truly remarkable and spectacular route, the 276km French Way traverses mountainous and flat terrain dotted with Romanesque and gothic architecture, Templar castles and Benedictine monasteries, lush forests and rushing rivers.

Learn the legends of Medieval Europe as you pass through some of the most beautiful parts of Spain, including great cities like León, quaint villages such as Molinaseca and Cacabelos, and important pilgrimage towns like Sarria, Portomarín and Santiago de Compostela.

Your unforgettable walking tour includes 15 nights of accommodation, including 13 nights in selected family-run hotels and pensione (guesthouse) accommodation with private ensuites, plus one night in a hotel at the beginning and end of your tour, daily breakfast and 10 three-course dining experiences with local wine. Walk uninhibited with daily luggage transfer to your next destination, a Pilgrim’s passport to collect stamps throughout, the services of an expert, English-speaking walking guide, a Compostela certificate from Santiago de Compostela upon completion, and countless once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

The Portuguese Coastal Way: To see a different side of this iconic trail’s beauty, you could join the 15-day walking tour of the popular Portuguese Coastal Way from the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of Porto, Portugal along the stunning Atlantic Ocean to the ancient splendour of Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

2021 Holy Year departures available: Experience this iconic walk during the 2021 'Camino Holy Year', an event that only happens a handful of times per century and sees the cities along the Camino path come to life with festivals celebrating the feast of St. James.

Your journey takes you to: León — Hospital de Orbigo — Astorga — Rabanal del Camino — Molinaseca — Cacabelos — Las Herrerias — O Cebreiro — Triacastela — Sarria — Portomarín — Palas de Rei — Melide — Arzua — A Rúa — Santiago de Compostela.
