Camino de Santiago - The French Trail
Pilgrims have been walking the Camino de Santiago for centuries, following the many paths to Santiago de Compostela. Our journey on the Camino trail will let you enjoy the best of the French Way, from León to Santiago, by foot and by bus. Considered to be one of the most popular routes, it is without doubt the most historic Jacobean route. Its footprints can be traced back to the 9th century, a little after the discovery of the remains of the Apostle. The richness of its landscape and artistic qualities attracts pilgrims from all over the globe, that traditionally travel the Way on foot, by bicycle and by horse. It celebrates 20 years of being declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and the first European itinerary.
Each day will include an easy 1 - 2 hour walk which will let you take in the atmosphere of the Camino. On this journey we will wander on and off the Camino and visit the best of what we can see on and around the route, not being restricted by needing to keep on the track, yet experiencing the best part of the walking and sightseeing.
We will enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the countryside of Galicia, taste the wonderful Spanish cuisine, visit Santiago de Compostela and journey to the Camino Finisterre, with its rocky shoreline, also known as the 'end of the world' in medieval times.
