"Cycling The Camino De Santiago" is a self-guided private tour that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Since the 9th century, the French Way has led thousands of pilgrims on an 800km journey across northern Spain, winding from the Pyrenees across the wheat fields of old Castile to pass through to Leon and onwards to Santiago.

Your eight-night self-guided cycling holiday begins in Leon with the route taking in the last 225km of the pilgrimage trail.
