Welcome to a transformative adventure that blends ancient traditions with modern exploration – the Camino de Santiago. I have years of experience curating unforgettable pilgrimage experiences for groups ready to embark on this sacred journey.

Our Journey

Christians have been taking pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela for 1200 years. El Camino de Santiago means “the Way of St. James” and is a walking pilgrimage across northern Spain to the Tomb and Cathedral of St. James. In Spain, you will be walking through about 100 towns and villages. Lots of interaction with Spanish villagers and some of the 250,000 annual pilgrims from around the world are highlights of the journey.

Sample Itinerary

Day 1 – Meet the group in Madrid at the airport or train station, depending on your travel arrangements. Travel via train to Ponferrada by early afternoon. Spend the afternoon settling in and seeing the city.

Day 2 -  In the morning you will visit the 13th century castle of the Knights of Templar. The castle is in spectacular shape. The towns 15th century basilica is right next to the castle. After visiting the sites in Ponferrada, we will take a short bus trip to Villafranca del Bierzo, a town famous for their winemaking and the beautiful river through town.  

Day 3 - Walking 22 km will bring us right to the foot of the steepest climb, resting in Las Herrerías before climbing in the morning.

Day 4 - This day begins with the steepest climb to the highest mountain that the group will experience, nearly 500 m elevation in the first 8 km. On top of the mountain is O’Cebreiro, an ancient town where tradition says that the “Holy Grail” was once hidden.

Day 5 - Yesterday’s steep climb is met with today’s equally steep descent. You are now into the heart of Galicia, and the major language is Galician, though many speak Spanish as well. You will notice major shifts in culture and architecture. We will end the day in Samos, home of a 6th century monastery that is still in operation.

Day 6 - Today’s walk is just 15 km, much of it downhill. You end the day in the full service town of Sarria. Sarria is the beginning point for pilgrims to receive their compostella, so the number of pilgrims increases significantly these last 100km.

Day 7 - The walk out of Sarria is about 22 km among large shade trees. The small hamlets have gotten both more frequent and smaller now, some being home to only 10 residents. You will end the day in the river valley town of Portomarín.

Day 8 - This day begins with a long uphill, sometimes through the sweet smell of eucalyptus forests. This will be our longest day of approximately 15 miles. You are now in excellent country for Galicia's famous seafood offerings. Don't miss the paella!

Day 9- You will walk up and down through several river valleys. This shorter day will allow plenty of time for rest and exploring Melide's tradition of pulpo (Galician octopus). 

Day 10 - Another shorter day will bring you to the full service town of Arzua, famous for their special cheese and many dishes prepared with it. 

Day 11 - With just two walking days left, this is a great time to hear about the stories of each pilgrim's Camino as they prepare for it to end. Most will wish that it wasn’t over. Everyone will want to share stories as you make your way to your final stop of O Pedrouzo.

Day 12 - Mixed feelings accompany the final day of walking, as you consider the gifts and challenges of the pilgrimage. As you enter the cathedral square in the mid-afternoon, you will see what makes this medieval city so special. 

Day 13 - This day will include Mass at the Cathedral, visiting the tomb of St. James, receiving your “compostela,” and exploring this beautiful and lively town. After spending the morning in Santiago, you will take a train from Santiago to Madrid in the late afternoon. Pilgrims who choose to spend additional time in Santiago will have their train tickets reserved for them but will travel back to Madrid on their own timing.
