The Camino de Santiago is a world-famous pilgrimage and aptly described as one of the world?s greatest travel experiences. All of our walking routes ensure that you walk the final 100km and thus qualify for the official Pilgrim?s Certificate upon reaching the magnificent cathedral in Santiago. Terrain is varied but not extreme: walking through rolling hills following country lanes, old bridle paths and forest trails. You'll pass medieval villages, Romanesque churches, wild Atlantic coastline and fishing towns.
"A holiday that respects the individuality of the traveller with the security, experience and trip organisation by a professional travel company is reassuring." Andrew Henderson, Camino de Santiago ? The French Way
Walks Worldwide offers a choice of Camino de Santiago routes ? The French Way encompasses the most popular route to Santiago from Sarria and The Coastal Way is a stunning alternative route following the Atlantic Coast from Baiona. All of our routes involve moderate to demanding walks and are therefore suitable for a fit, experienced walker. Stay in characterful 2* and 3* hotels along your route or enjoy higher standard accommodation in rural settings on our In Style trip, including a night in a 5* Parador.
Spring, early summer and early autumn are the best times to visit in terms of the weather. June and September are strongly recommended as it?s not too hot and the caminos are quieter.
