“Amazing Camino de Santiago trip! ….loved the living history, food, wines and flexibility to walk as much or as little as we desired. While some of our group of friends took the van transfer ahead a few times, no one missed dinner or dessert but unlike the cruises we lost weight… Our guide was a super, caring and fun. Thanks!”

The Camino de Santiago origins take us back to the year 812 in the middle ages with news that the lost tomb of the apostle Saint James (Sant Iago) had been discovered in NW Spain. The news spread and the pilgrims began to arrive, first to a small shrine. Many donations and centuries later, the dramatic Cathedral de Santiago was completed, now the center of the city of Santiago de Compostella. The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage is now listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Walk in the footsteps….

Our 7 day private Camino de Santiago adventures are customized but typically begin a bit closer to Santiago in the scenic city of Leon, Spain
after a transfer from Madrid. In the footsteps of these countless medieval pilgrims , you can experience Europe´s premier historic pilgrimage trail. The Camino de Santiago began and was also recorded in detail by medieval monks in the Codex Calixtinus. Active branches of the Camino de Santiago connect all the way to southern Germany and beyond!

While walking expect to see unforgettable scenic countryside trails, medieval towns, forest tracks and farmer’s fields.With full van support, fine dinners and deluxe hotels we don’t believe in suffering but you can feel the emotion and connection of one of the Christian world’s epic pilgrimages.

In recent years pilgrims from over 62 countries have earned the Camino de Santiago certificate of completion.
