Camino Stage 5 - O Cebreiro to Santiago

  • Hike the final 150km (93 miles) of the Camino Frances ending in Santiago de Compostela
  • Pass through charming rural villages, farmlands, and leafy woodlands
  • Enjoy a pilgrim’s mass at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela
  • Receive your ‘Compostela’ certificate on arrival in Santiago
  • Discover churches and historic landmarks on this UNSECO heritage route
Hike the last section of the Camino through rural Spain ending up in the fabulous city of Santiago de Compostela. A wonderful section of the route and just enough mileage to gain your Compostela Certificate. This final stage passes through the Sierra of Ranadoiro and descends into the valley to Triacastela. You pass through many hamlets dotted along cultivated land in the direction of the great river Mino to Portomarin. Pine groves and Eucalyptus trees can be seen as you enter the farming region of Ulloa. As you enter the province of A Coruna the landscape changes as the woodlands begin to disappear and you will soon see the spires of the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela in front of you.
