Tour Overview

To be eligible for the official Compostela certificate you must walk at least the final 100km of the iconic Camino de Santiago. This trip offers time starved travellers a chance to experience the last six days of the Camino pilgrimage route which extends 115km from Sarria to Santiago. Your guide will provide you with a wonderful appreciation of the historic significance of the route and will really bring the Camino to life. Walking through mixed landscapes in the company of your guide and group, there are numerous reminders of the pilgrims past who travelled the route including crosses, statues and grain silos. Thanks to your guide, the history of the trail will be shared with you to ensure that you soak in as much as you can during your short time on the trail. One of the many highlights is reaching the gates of Galicia which lead on to the fabled Santiago de Compostela with its famous cathedral, site of the tomb of St James.

Day 1 : Arrive Sarria
Meals Included: D

Make your own way to the first hotel in Sarria. Sarria is located on a hilltop with a river on either side affording you great views of the region. Today you will meet with your guide for a tour briefing, followed by dinner with the group.

Day 2 : Walk Through The Hills Of Galicia To Portomarin (6Hrs)
Meals Included: B, D

This morning we can take the time to visit the Church of the convent of La Magdalena. Over the “Meseta lucense”, the Lugo Plateau, we will pass through many hamlets dotted along areas of cultivated land, grazing pastures and woodlands, and view the first “horreos”, typical raised grain silos. The walk today is relatively easy until the descent, crossing the Dam of Portomarin where ruins of the ancient flooded village can be seen, and into the town to our accommodation. Distance: 22km/13.6mi

Day 3 : To Palas De Rei (6-7Hrs)
Meals Included: B, D

The route today takes us through forested areas which have a magnificent fragrance. Along the path we will pass charming hamlets and calvaries. We will walk through Ventas de Naron, head over the gentle Sierra de Ligonde, and continue downhill through Previsa and Lameiros to Ligonde, with its church dedicated to the apostle St James and where Emperor Charles V stayed on 24 March 1520. On to Palas de Rei, where we stay overnight in a charming hotel. Distance: 24km/14.9mi

Day 4 : Leave Lugo To Enter La Coruña And On To Melide (4.5Hrs)
Meals Included: B, D

On our walk to Melide we will pass through the small towns of Coto and Leboreiro. Melide is one of the larger towns along the Galician section of the Camino Trail. We recommend that for dinner tonight you try the local speciality ‘Pulpo a feira’, octopus usually served boiled and sprinkled with sweet and spicy paprika. Distance: 15km/9.3mi

Day 5 : To Arzúa (4Hrs)
Meals Included: B, D

The terrain becomes much easier today as we walk through the villages of Carballal,
San Xuilan do Camino and Lebereiro and past Eucalyptus trees. The group will be able to stop at one of many villages for lunch. As we cross over the River Seco on the Magdalena Bridge we will reach Furelos, before we continue to Arzúa in the province of La Coruña. Distance: 14km/8.7mi

Day 6 : To Rúa (5-6Hrs)
Meals Included: B, D

Today’s walk will bring us to the small town of Rua which has a population of only 50 people. The walk today is lovely, passing large green fields and rural landscapes. Distance: 19km/11.8mi

Day 7 : Arrive Santiago (6Hrs)
Meals Included: B, D

On our last walk together we will pass many ancient sites including monuments, chapels and bridges – all of which have a story to tell. We follow country lanes and forest paths through increasingly populated countryside. The last day on the trail is always a special one, as we make our way to Santiago on foot. Arriving in the fabled Santiago de Compostela there is plenty to see and do – or simply relax and celebrate the end of the journey. Distance: 21km/13mi

Miguel, our guide, was exceptional. Being on a guided 6 day walk on the final 115 km walk from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela was an experience both my wife and I will remember for ever. The friendship, the scenery, the food and wine, the satisfaction of walking the trail all contributed to our memories. Loved every moment, even though my wife had some blisters! A truly wonderful experience. Thank you.

Despite the weather, the trip was excellent, with a first class guide, Peter, who taught us about the rich history of the region and the Camino. He was a great shepherd to a group of mixed abilities. The hotels were generally above my expectations. The food was generally excellent.

Really enjoyed our Sarria to Santiago de Compestello Camino Walk. Our Guide, Sylvia, was fantastic - positive, fun, energetic and looked after all our needs brilliantly, especially where some translation was required. Our hotels were varied and all satisfied our needs - clean, ready and good breakfasts. Or dinner venues were also varied and enjoyable though some left us waiting for some considerable time. We were delighted with the transport of our bags and the overall support of UTracks, the local operator. The walking itself was fantastic - we were lucky with weather, the terrain was rural/scenic, met some great people on The Way, lots of cafes/bars to stop at and an incredible Cathedral at the end. Would totally recommend this trip!

The trip was outstanding due to, Luis, our guide. He was a wealth of information on the history, culture and gastronomy of the area. He was very concerned for our well being, specially as we were met by violent wind and daily rain storms. Luis got us to the finish line and kept our morale up. He made very wise decisions as to departure and ending times. He made the trip outstanding in spite of any obstacles.
