Description of Sarria to Santiago de Compostela walking tour, Spain

This Sarria to Santiago de Compostela walking tour follows the last few segments of the Camino de Santiago’s French Route, or Camino Francés. With six days of walking on this itinerary, it is a tailor made self guided route, so we can always tweak things to suit your interests and time frame.

This trip is perfect for those who want to experience and enjoy the camaraderie and landscapes of the Camino de Santiago but who don’t have time to commit to doing the whole thing. Experience the remote and gorgeous walking terrain of Galicia in Northern Spain, walking between 21-26 km for six days en route to your final destination at Santiago de Compostela. In total you will cover 126 km between Samos to Santiago de Compostela, if you opt for an extra 11km hike at the beginning between Samos and Sarria.

We also offer a guided tour onto Finisterre where some say is the true end of the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail. At the end of this trip you will be rewarded with the official pilgrims’ certificate, known as ‘Compostela’ upon your arrival at Santiago. We will organise all the accommodation for you along the way, as we work closely with many small hotels and guesthouses that have long traditions of welcoming Camino pilgrims. We can also ensure that your luggage is transported from one place to the next. As this is a tailor made itinerary, we can tweak it to suit your interests and time frame, adding a day of rest here and there, recommending places where it is good to do so, and also recommending some great eateries along the way.

Responsible tourism: Sarria to Santiago de Compostela walking tour, Spain

Environment

Our guests typically look for a different experience and an alternative to large-resort-commercial-travels. The peacefulness, the small villages, the local food, “secret” beaches and amazing mountain hikes and last but not least 100% customized pilgrimages are keywords in our philosophy.

A wonderful side-effect is that we assist developing local tourist-based economies by using their local taxi-services, local guides, bars, restaurants etc. by showing our guests local specialities and hidden places, that you will never find in “normal” guidebooks. Some of the hotel accommodations are located in historical buildings and the tourism helps to preserve them and their history.

Before starting your journey, you will receive a personal guidebook regarding the vacation, which takes in consideration the wishes of each traveller. E.g. if the traveller would like to visit small ecological wineries or discover the best examples of local architecture, our suggestions are all provided in the guidebook.

We are located in the heart of Northern Spain, in the old historic town of León. Our prime focus is to show our guests the most authentic, most beautiful and loveliest parts of Northern Spain. We always share our guest’s experiences with the hotels and other collaboration partners we work with, to help develop local tourism into a sustainable and healthy destination. Its important for us to give our guests an experience that is not reachable in other parts of Europe, through showing them the real local life and hidden places, which our guest would never have found without our help.

Community

A large part of our travels has a touch off (or is entirely) an active holiday, in the mountains or by the ocean. The wonderful and enthusiastic work, which is being done to protect and maintain wildlife and national parks is dependent from visitors and their financial support. Quality tourism means for us quality tourists, which are interested not only to see secret, hidden places, but also have the knowledge to understand what it takes to maintain these wonderful sights Northern Spain can offer.

We also offer activities which always respect nature and are guided by an expert, like whale-, brown bear-, bird- watching or fishing from a fishing boat. We also support local food and gastronomy with ecological products, sustainable wine-tourism etc. And we hope we add our part of improving each field and at the same time, maintaining the small-scale business authentic and “something special”.

Getting to Santiago to the Cathedral after a long and sometimes demanding walk.

For those in their sixties I would suggest a walk duration of 11-12 days from Porto to Santiago.

Local people benefitted certainly from the additional business they got from us. We were extremely careful to respect the environment we were in and were generally impressed with the level of cleanliness and respect shown to it.

This was a wonderful holiday, with all arrangements in place. The operator did a fantastic job of managing logistics, getting us hotels which were brilliantly located and which carried their own history (in a number of cases).
