Meet: Lugo, Spain
Return: Santiago de Compostela, Spain
Hiking level: Moderate
If you’re looking to conduct your own pilgrimage, along a route filled with the beautiful countryside and rustic villages of Northern Spain, start here, at the Camino de Santiago. In this eight-day trip, you’ll complete the last 100km of the pilgrimage route to Santiago and receive a “compostela” certificate when you’re finished to prove your accomplishment. Refuel with tasty Spanish food and take the time to stop and smell the flowers – it’s active but at a slower, more picturesque pace.
