"While the terrain may be challenging, the rewards you'll uncover on Camino de Santiago make its tribulations worthy of the endeavour. Wandering this pilgrimage route is the ultimate embodiment of slowing down to see the world."
—Oscar Biedma, Experience Designer
a storied labyrinth of trails
El Camino de Santiago has drawn pilgrims for thousands of years. Leading to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in Spain’s Northwest, millions have hiked its trails seeking reflection and peace. Moving adventures abound, from walking through medieval towns, forests and ever-changing scenery to lasting friendships and the thrill of personal accomplishments—whatever you search for, life-changing Camino holds the key.
Discover the possibilities:
Bike the Famous Pilgrim Route
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. You'll 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 more rewarding. Along the way, you'll view some of the pilgrimage’s most notable sites, including the Puerta del Perdón, the Cruz de Ferro (Iron Cross), a Benedictine monastery in Samos and the Catedral de Santiago.
Camino de Santiago on Two Feet
Hike around legendary Roncesvalles, be stunned by Galicia via O Cebreiro—the passage through the mountains of "Serra de Ranadoiro." Follow forest tracks leading to medieval villages of Boente and Ribadiso. Puente la Reina’s iconic six-arched medieval bridge is a star attraction, and its strategic location unlocks historical Estella, a city of lively markets and delightful dishes. Spend a couple of nights in religious mecca at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Santiago De Compostela, chocked with impressive churches, monasteries and historic palaces.
Camino Culture & History
Uncover the myths, mysteries and legends that capture the Camino, like the early history of pilgrims who were attracted to routes that followed the Milky Way. Discover why the scallop shell is such an iconic symbol, the significance of the yellow arrows and why pilgrims burn their shoes at the end of their journeys. Take part in traditional ceremonies honouring patron saints and toast new friends over superb regional specialties.
