Best of the Camino

  • Walk the best and most interesting sections of the Camino Frances
  • Cross the Pyrenees on the first stage of the Camino to Roncesvalles
  • Experience the bustling cities of Logrono, Pamplona and Leon
  • Collect your Compostela in Santiago after completing the final 100k
  • Enjoy wonderful camaraderie with fellow pilgrims
Walk the best sections of the Camino Frances in two weeks, travelling from the Pyrenees to Santiago. Starting in St-Jean-Pied-de-Port, straddling the French and Spanish border, tackle the high mountains and deep valleys of the Pyrenees before crossing through undulating plains and olive groves to the bustling and typically Spanish city of Logrono. From here a private transfer will take you to Sarria via Leon. Continue on your way, walking the final 100km needed to qualify for your Compostela. Finish with a free day in Santiago to allow you to attend the Pilgrim’s Mass, a highlight of any Camino experience!

  • Walking the Camino de Santiago

    The Camino de Santiago in Spain is the heart of the modern pilgrimage world, and every year, thousands take to its various paths to trek to Santiago de Compostela. A deep spiritual sense accompanies this walk, whether you are looking for it or not. People undertake pilgrimages for a multitude of reasons and it is meeting these fellow pilgrims, hearing their stories and sharing your adventure with them that makes a Camino tour a life-changing event.
