Spain by Bike

An Ancient Pilgrimage by Bike

Bike a portion of the ancient pilgrimage route along the Camino de Santiago and take in sites that will provide perspective—when they're not taking your breath away. The Puerta del Perdón, the Cruz de Ferro and a Benedictine monastery in Samos reveal the pilgrim's journey, while the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela, the medieval resting place of St. James, offers both spectacle and serenity at the end of your personal pilgrimage. And the best part? Bike from start to finish, with no driving from León to Santiago (unless you'd like to, of course).

Trip Details



We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.


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.



“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”


“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”


“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”


“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”


“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Day by Day



Parador San Marcos, León

Once a 16thC monastery built to shelter pilgrims, this parador is one of Spain’s most acclaimed hotels. Located near León’s old town on the banks of the Bernesga River, the property boasts a magnificent cloister, sumptuous antique-filled rooms, gorgeous gardens, a lovely music room and an equally impressive buffet breakfast that fuels us for our first day on the trail!

Parador de Santiago de Compostela

The Hostal dos Reis Católicos, a former 16thC hospice founded by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, provides a well deserved five-star finish to our journey. Next to the cathedral, the property once served as a hospital for pilgrims visiting the tomb of St. James, and is now considered one of the finest hotels in Europe. Our rooms are palatial, featuring handsome antiques, ornate canopied beds and remarkably sumptuous bathrooms. View hotel website »
