Just a “Taste” of the Camino – Walk the last 100 kilometers of the Camino de Santiago
A pilgrim undertakes this journey across Northern Spain to follow the footsteps of monarchs, noblemen, writers and poets, and to journey with so many other pilgrims from all over the world.
Our adventure along the Camino de Santiago, Europe’s legendary pilgrimage takes us through the Spanish countryside, showing us its people, its food, it’s past and present until we reach Santiago de Compostela the final destination of the adventure.
When you’ve checked out the other companies that can take you along the Camino, you will find that our price is competitive and our tour of the highest quality. That is because we’ve been making this journey since 1995. We personally know each and every hotel, family run Inn, and restaurant owner and also maintain the integrity of the Camino.
Come travel across Spain with the company that helped pave the way, let us show you the Camino the way it should be seen….up close and personal.
Arrival in the beautiful city of León, once the capital of the ancient Kingdom. You will be greeted by your Spain Adventures specialists and after a welcome lunch and brief presentation of the days to come, the adventure begins. We pick up our credenciales which will log our footsteps along the Camino and later this afternoon we shuttle to El Bierzo so that you can have a fresh start tomorrow.
With scallop shells on, backpack on our backs
we get our first glimpses of the green Galician countryside.
Our walk begins in the Bierzo and we make our way up to a beautiful little hamlet of Celtic houses and a church which houses the Chalice of a 14th century legendary Miracle. The scenery today will take your breath away and we’re all warmed up for our first full walk tomorrow.

We hop in the van for one last shuttle to our accommodations for the evening.

Today we begin our final walk to reach our destination. We start where we left off yesterday and an exciting day awaits us. Walking through eucalyptus forests we ascend the Monte de Gozo where, from the top of the mountain we see Santiago de Compostela for the very first time. We enter the city and continue to follow the familiar yellow arrows that have guided us for many days until we see the cathedral before us. We go directly to collect our much deserved Compostela and the afternoon is yours to explore the many ruas of this beautiful city. Tonight we meet for our farewell dinner and our celebration of a journey you’ll remember, always!
