Travel Itinerary

The group will be summoned around eight o’clock in the evening for an informative meeting in which the guides will give a talk about the itinerary, solve your doubts and hand out the pilgrim’s credentials and the labels for the transport of luggage, as well as some other gifts.

Once you have settled into your accommodation, you can enjoy the pilgrim atmosphere of the town by strolling through the cobbled streets of the old part of town, or relaxing on the Malecón promenade on one of the terraces by the river. A day to rest, get psyched up and get ready to enjoy an incredible experience on the French Way from Sarria in a group.

You will start your first day as pilgrims with a first stage characterized by the majesty of its forests, rivers and small rural villages surrounded by pastures. You will walk through a comfortable terrain without many slopes, discovering on your way some monuments such as the Church of Ferreiros and Barbadelo. You will also find many places where you can refresh yourself and rest. A few kilometres before reaching the end of the stage you will see the Belesar reservoir in the distance, an indicator that we are already arriving at the end of the stage, Portomarín.

In this stage you will combine road and mountain during 25 kilometers of route. After climbing some slopes, it is worth taking a short detour to visit the Castromaior hillfort, a Celtic settlement that bears witness to the past of the Galician community. After passing several villages, you can visit the monastery and the church of Vilar de Donas, declared a National Monument in 1931.

Once in Palas de Rei, where you will have all the services, you only have to worry about resting and discovering the wonders of the village.

This is the longest stage of the French Way within the Galician community, 29 kilometers separate you from your destination so we recommend taking it easy and enjoy the surroundings, as it is also one of the most beautiful scenic stages of the route. Already in the province of A Coruña, dirt roads, lush forests and medieval bridges will guide our way to Santiago de Compostela. For all pilgrims a stop in Melide, capital of the Galician octopus, is a must. In any of its many pulperías you can taste this delicacy of Galician gastronomy. After recovering your strength, the last kilometres will not involve much effort and once you reach Arzúa you will have the rest of the day to rest your body and mind.

Today you are in luck, your feet will hardly suffer as you will find a short and less complex stage than the previous ones. You will walk on flat and comfortable terrain, finding plenty of bars, shops and places to rest. Santiago is getting closer and closer and the pilgrim ritual of this stage is to go to bed early to be able to get up early and make the most of the day in Santiago de Compostela.

As this is a relatively short and easy stage, we recommend getting up a little early to arrive early for the pilgrim’s mass and make the most of the day in Santiago de Compostela. When you arrive at Monte do Gozo, you will discover the reason for the name of this place: the tingling, that pleasant sensation that will invade you when you see the towers of the cathedral in the distance, closer and closer.

As you descend the city, the blisters and fatigue will fade away until the most magical moment of the entire Camino: your triumphal entry into the Plaza del Obradoiro.

You are in Santiago! Feel happy and proud to have completed your Camino de Santiago. Now you just need to pick up the Compostela certificate and enjoy an incredible day getting to know the Galician capital with your travel companions.

Congratulations! You have completed your French Way from Sarria in a group. This last day you are in charge, you can go back home or enjoy one more day in Santiago. And how beautiful is Compostela.

Did you know that all roads end in Finisterre? If you have been left with the desire to walk and you have 5 days more, we encourage you to complete the 5 stages that separate Santiago from Finisterre. The most magical and spiritual route that hides real treasures such as Ponte Maceira, one of the most beautiful villages in Spain or the extraordinary sunset of the Finisterre lighthouse.

The operation of the Camino de Santiago in group is very simple. Imagine an incredible trip among friends, well, the same.   Approximately one month before the trip we will close the group and send you the documentation of your trip with all the detailed information (bus / names of the accommodations / welcome meeting / dossier with recommendations / insurance policy).   Once the whole group has arrived in Sarria, the guides will meet you in a welcome meeting to get to know each other, to inform you about the dynamics of the trip and to solve all your doubts. They will also provide you with credentials, stickers for the transport of luggage and will give you a T-shirt and a pilgrim's scallop. This first day we do not walk, we can take the opportunity to have a drink, get to know each other better and make a small visit to the village.   During one week we will cover the 110 kilometers that separate Sarria from Santiago de Compostela. We will walk an average of 20 kilometers a day in 5 stages. Of course everyone at their own pace. We will also create a Whatsapp group in which the guide will be proposing stops to rest and wait for the others as well as places of interest that we can visit. Once we arrive at the end of the stage our luggage will be waiting for us at the reception of our assigned hotel. After showering and resting for a while, the guide will suggest a place to have lunch and those who want to can join in and exchange experiences. Only if it is possible, we will organize some activity such as concerts or queimadas to liven up the afternoon with our companions on the Camino.   It is a trip of coexistence in which always end up creating very strong bonds between the members of the group. We love to see how once we arrive in Santiago, those people who a week ago were strangers, end up being in many cases friends for life.
In your travel documents, you will find the names of the accommodations assigned to you, as well as their contact telephone number and location.   As a general rule, all accommodation is located in the centre of the different towns along the Pilgrims' Route to Santiago de Compostela, without the need to deviate too far from the route. But sometimes, due to lack of availability, it is possible that some accommodation may be a little far from the village or even in neighbouring towns.   For all the accommodations that are at a considerable distance from the route of the Camino, we will provide you with a free taxi service that you can use to get to your accommodation and return to the Camino the next morning.   In any case, these are exceptions that we will inform you at the time of booking.
Luggage transport service by default is included in all our trips and it is not necessary to request it. You will be able to do the Camino de Santiago without your luggage on your back with the peace of mind that your suitcase will be at your next accommodation on your arrival.   Along with your credential you will also receive stickers, which you must cover with the requested information and stick it in a visible place on your suitcase.   Once you have arrived at your accommodation, we recommend that you ask at reception where you can leave your luggage. You will have to leave your luggage at the indicated place first thing in the morning for our carrier to pick it up. This way, when you arrive at your next accommodation your luggage will already be there.
The support vehicle is at your disposal during the whole trip and you will be able to use it in case you get injured or are unable to continue walking for any reason. As a general rule, the support vehicle will not be able to pick you up anywhere along the route, as the Camino de Santiago runs through forests, forest tracks and narrow paths where it is difficult to access vehicles, especially buses. We will place the support vehicle halfway through the stage and we will send you its exact location. This means that in case you are injured and want to walk, you must be sure that you are able to walk at least 10 kilometers.
This is the person who will be with you during the whole trip, from the moment of the reception of the group in Sarria until the arrival in Santiago de Compostela. It will be one more of the group and will be at your disposal to help you with anything you may need, solve problems, solve all your doubts and help to make pineapple and union of the group.   Our guides know every stage of the Camino de Santiago to the millimeter and have done it many times. They will give you the best recommendations on what to see, what to visit and where to eat so that you don't miss anything. In addition, once the stage is over, he will be able to propose a plan for those who want to join in.
We include a compulsory insurance with each trip that will cover you for any inconveniences that may arise during the Camino de Santiago. We will send you the insurance policy together with your travel documents.
The basic travel insurance included in our packages has a wide coverage against unforeseen events, with which you will also have guaranteed medical assistance and numerous benefits that you can consult in the General Conditions of Travel Insurance.
