The last 100 kilometers from Sarria to Santiago
Our Buen Camino includes:
MealsAll breakfasts and dinners are included in this tour. We have carefully selected the included meals so you can have a taste of the most typical, most delicious, local cuisine. Most lunches are not included to provide more flexibility during the day and so you can experiment on your own. You can stop and eat something along the way, or have lunch at the end of the daily stage.
Vegetarians, vegans, or those with a special diet (eg. gluten-free) can always find suitable options. Just let us know beforehand and we will be happy to accommodate your needs.
AccommodationAll of our accommodations are hand-picked to give you the best possible experience. We will stay in charming Galician manors, usually in rural areas, that used to be the homes of important people in the community in the past such as kings or noblemen. They form part of the cultural experience. Usually they are located in privileged areas surrounded with green, peaceful scenery. All our accommodations have private en suite bathrooms. You can be sure to receive personalized attention and excellent service from the owners, who will make you feel more than at home.
WalkingYou walk at your own pace. There is no one you have to follow or walk with. We have meeting points along the way where our support vehicle will be waiting with snacks, fruits and water. We also offer assistance for any unexpected circumstances or simply to relieve muscular pain or cure blisters.
If you do not want to keep walking for any reason, you can hop on the support vehicle or be taken back to the hotel. You mustn't worry about getting lost as the yellow arrows always show the way. Moreover, on the Camino you are never alone. After the daily walk you will have a much-deserved break. In the afternoon, pilgrims can visit places of interest found in the area if they so desire.
Before and AfterBefore: Our Camino starts in the city of Madrid, which enjoys easy access internationally. We offer activities in Madrid and its surroundings for those interested. We recommend arriving at least one day before the starting date. Take advantage of our exclusive rate at the 5-star Paseo del Prado hotel where we meet the first day in Madrid: 135€ (single room), and 145€ (double room) for the two pre-tour nights.
After: Our tour ends in Santiago de Compostela on the last day at around 1:00 pm. Transportation back to Madrid is NOT included. We offer optional add-on activities once the tour is finished like culinary activities in Santiago or our recommended one-day trip to Finisterre. You can join one of our activities, stay in Santiago on your own, or leave on the last day of the tour. An extra night in Santiago is 75€ per night for this tour.
You can fly or take the train back to Madrid or elsewhere. The Santiago-Madrid flight is 1 hour long, and the train trip is 6-10 hours long. There are plenty of short flights throughout the day to Madrid and other cities. You can book online or through your travel agency. We would be happy to make recommendations.
