Spain by Bike

An Ancient Pilgrimage by Bike

The ancient pilgrimage route along the Camino de Santiago is a quintessential example of how cycling provides a great way to slow down to see the world. We only take in a portion of this route, the full version of which stretches its way all over Europe. Our portion features many challenging up-hill sections, which will make its flatter sections all the more rewarding. Along the way, we’ll view some of the pilgrimage’s most noted sites, including the Puerta del Perdón, the Cruz de Ferro (Iron Cross), a Benedictine monastery in Samos, and the Catedral de Santiago. The best thing about this trip is we bike from start to finish with no driving by car or van, meaning you truly bike from León to Santiago.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
