Walk the Camino of Santiago de Compostela

We design Walks to Santiago for persons who prefer staying in charming guest houses and luxury accommodations, English speaking Guides, City Tours and Airport Transfers during walks in Spain, Portugal and France; two favorites known for their beauty. The Camino del Norte in northern Spain's Basque Country, through the region of Cantabria, Asturias and on to Santiago de Compostela. We recommend beginning your  walk in San Sebastian, along the coastal route to Bilbao and parts of the Picos de Europa mountains and many historic villages before reaching Santiago de Compostela. 

The Camino Portuguese starts in Lisbon, however we recommend Porto (bypassing the highways of central Portugal). From Porto you'll walk in Galicia, cross the River Minho through Tui. You will visit the Rías Baixas region of Spain, home of Albariño white wine and some of Europe’s top seafood and historic villages like Pontevedra before arriving in Santiago de Compostela.

During both the Camino del Norte and Camino Portuguese we'll arrange private guide, accommodations, transportation when needed. The minimum required distance to obtain your Pilgrims is 100 kilometers, so either of these walks will qualify.
