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.
Arrive at any time. Welcome meeting this evening with your hike leader and other group members to start your hiking holidays on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela.

Over the next five days, follow the Camino de Santiago to its ultimate goal, the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. Before leaving Lugo, stop to pick up your “credencial,” which will be stamped daily to authenticate your progress. Our hike takes in tiny villages where the rustic, home-cooked local food is a delicious accompaniment to your hike. Walk through rolling green hills, past churches and ruined towns, walking between 15-25km (9-15 mi) per day.
This morning our Camino journey reaches its dramatic conclusion as we cover the final 14kms from Amenal into Santiago de Compostela itself. Embrace the history and spirituality of this magnificent and important cathedral during mass and receive your your “compostela,” a document that certifies your journey. This evening, enjoy this beautiful town and celebrate your achievement at one of the many local bars and restaurants.
