“Walking was tough - an endurance test. Transport of luggage between hotels worked well. Documentation was not very accurate, but way-marking on the paths was good. We felt a sense of achievement on completing the walk.”
On arrival at Santiago airport, you will be met by a Peregrine representative and transferred to your hotel in Sarria, the province of Lugo – just over 100 kilometres from Santiago de Compostela. There is no walking scheduled for today, so you can arrive at any time. In your hotel upon check in, you will receive a Welcome Pack. It is a pack of essential information and documents for your trip including very detailed Travel Book with updated itinerary, route notes and maps, Pilgrim Passport, which you need in order to receive Camino certificate upon completion of your trip!), hotel and meal vouchers, luggage tags and some extra information about the places you are going to visit on your route. This Welcome Pack is an essential piece for your trip, so please make sure you will check all included information and make yourself familiar with details of exciting route that lay ahead.
For dinner, the charming restaurant at Hotel Roma in Sarria is highly recommended.
Accommodation
  • Hotel Alfonso IX or similar
Begin the first stage of your walk. Throughout the course of the week you will become familiar with the yellow arrows and scallop-shell symbols that guide you. For centuries this shell has been the symbol of the Camino and there are a few different interpretations of its meaning, ranging from mythical and metaphorical to practical. The walk today takes you past many small hamlets. As you walk along the Rua Maior (Maior Street) to the Magdalena Monastery and cross the beautiful Bridge of Aspera, bid farewell to Sarria. Continuing through beautiful countryside and crossing a small idyllic stream, an uphill climb takes you to the villages of Vilei and Bardadelo. Barbadelo’s church is a perfect example of rural Galician Romanesque architecture. The Camino then winds along a dirt track through farming fields flanked by trees. Pass through the hamlets of Leimán and Peruscallo. The section from Peruscallo to the village of Brea (the official 100 km mark) is one of the most beautiful sections of the route. Continue through Mirallos and arrive at Penas, then take a downhill stone track to Moimentos, followed by Mercadoiro, Moutros, Parrocha and Vilachá. A steep descent brings you to the historic town of Portomarin, your base for the night.

Today's walk should take approximately 5–6 hours and is 23 km long.
Accommodation
  • Pousada de Portomarin or similar
With the Church of San Nicolás in your shadow, you will leave Portomarin today and make your way to Lestedo. Following a beautiful uphill track, then a road for a short section, an ascent takes you to a local farm and then to the town of Toxibo. At this point you will come to a very well preserved 'hórreo', which is a granary on stilts, typical to northern Spain. At the village of Gonzar you have the opportunity to stop at a peaceful rest area for pilgrims. After you pass through Gonzar, a steep uphill trail takes you to the small village of Castromaior. Soon you will reach a milestone that marks 80 kilometres. From Ventas de Narón, a short ascent takes you to Monte de Ligonde. Once at the top, take a downhill trail to Ligonde and then ascend to Eirexe. From here, make your way to Lestedo – a tranquil spot and the location of your 'feature stay' for this trip.

Today's walk should take approximately 4–5 hours and is 21 km long.
Accommodation
  • Casa Rectoral de Lestedo or similar (feature stay)
Today the Camino follows the path from Lestedo to Melida. An uphill climb takes you to Os Valos before you descend slowly to the pretty town of Palas de Rei, one of the most important towns on the pilgrim’s route in Galicia. Its large and partially canopied town square is the focal point of the town, home to a town hall made of granite and whitewash render (a typical example of the region's architecture). Leaving Palas behind, you will enter the beautiful countryside on your approach to the lovely village of San Xulián. The trail then leads you through oak groves to Casanova, and you are soon at the border of the provinces of Lugo and A Coruña. When you reach Leboreiro you will notice its modest Romanesque church. Inside is a carved image of the Virgin Mary. In Furelos you will see a four-arch medieval stone bridge. Your final destination today is Melide, one of the largest towns on the pilgrim’s route in Galicia.

Today's walk should take approximately 4–5 hours and is 19 km long.
Accommodation
  • Pensión Berenguela or similar
Bid farewell to Melide and wind your way along the quiet country roads and through beautiful countryside en route to the city of Arzúa – the point at which the Camino Frances (French Way) meets the Camino del North (North Way). Along the way, you will pass the ancient pilgrimage villages of Boente, Barona and Vilantime. Cross a bridge and follow the downward path that leads you to the restored village of Ribadiso on the banks of the Iso River. Continue and arrive at Arzúa, your base for the night. A small park in the town is a popular meeting point for the locals and provides an interesting insight into local village life. Some of Arzúa’s main monuments include the 14th-century Capilla de la Magdalena and the 20th-century Iglesia de Santiago. Be sure to try some of the famous local cheese (‘queixo’ in Galician or ‘queso’ in Spanish) – it’s available for sale in many of the town’s shops and restaurants.

Today's walk should take approximately 3–4 hours and is 15 km long.
Accommodation
  • Pazo Santa Maria or similar
Today you will complete one of the final stages of the Camino de Santiago. This stretch of the walk takes you through agricultural meadows, landscapes of oak and eucalyptus and a collection of sleepy villages such as Ferreiros, Boavista, O Castro and Salceda. Soon after Salceda, you will pass a monument dedicated to the pilgrim Guillermo Watt who died at this point when making his journey to Santiago. Next you will pass through Xen and Ras into Brea. From Brea, continue along the road to Santa Irene. A highlight of the day is a visit to the beautiful chapel of Santa Irene, a beautiful building with unique statues of St James (Santiago). A continuous, quiet country road then takes you eventually to your next stop, Rúa, one of the quieter places before Santiago de Compostela.

Today's walk should take approximately 4–5 hours and is 19 km long.
Accommodation
  • Hotel o Pino or similar
Embark on the final and key stage of the Camino de Santiago, with your ultimate goal, the city of Santiago de Compostela, in your sights. After leaving Rúa, pass through San Paio and the village of Lavacolla. Pilgrims in ancient times would wash in the stream here before continuing to Santiago. An uphill climb takes you to the village of Vilarmaior, then a gradual ascent sees you reach Monte do Gozo. It’s at this point that ancient pilgrims experienced their first views of the towers of the Cathedral of Santiago. This is a great spot to sit back, reflect and enjoy a well-earned rest before leaving the rural landscapes behind and heading into the urban sprawl of the city. As you come to the end of the final leg, you will walk through the town to the magnificent Plaza del Obradoiro and then to the gates of the marvellous Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. After you’ve rested and rejuvenated, take the time to wander around the historic quarter of the city. Perhaps obtain your Compostela certificate while here – provided you have stamps in your Pilgrim Passport as proof of completion of the last 100 kilometres (see your detailed route notes for more information).

Today's walk should take about 4–5 hours and is 19 km long.
Accommodation
  • Hotel Bonaval or similar
Your journey comes to an end after breakfast in Santiago de Compostela. You may wish to book additional nights' accommodation to explore the city some more. You can also book an optional departure transfer to the airport if you wish.

  • Introduction

    For over a thousand years, pilgrims have been walking the Camino de Santiago (the Way of St James). Here’s your chance to follow the trails of medieval pilgrims bound for Santiago de Compostela and have all the details taken care of – all you need to do is pack your bags!

  • Style

    Peregrine

  • Transport

    On foot

  • Physical Rating

    3

  • Physical preparation

    A reasonably good level of fitness is required to undertake this trip. You will be walking from 4-6-hours per day and the average walking stage is 22km (14 miles) per day. The Galician landscape is quite hilly so there will be some ups and downs but no hard ascents and descents, with approximately 150-500 metres of altitude change per day. The trail is a combination of rural (dirt) paths, stone footpaths, quieter country roads and some unavoidable main roads. To get the most out of your trip, we recommend undertaking some basic physical training beforehand.

    Packing List for cooler months

    During the cooler months (April/May & September/October), it's a good idea to take good protective overpants, jacket, waterproof hat and gloves, and to make sure boots are waterproof, as there is a slim chance that the walking could be a little wet or muddy. A backpack cover is also idea in case of rain.

  • Joining point description

    The subdued rooms and suites feature wood floors, free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs, as well as minibars and desks. Room service is available.

  • Finish point instructions

    If you are making your own way to the airport the hotel will be able to help book you an airport shuttle or taxi. Please ask at reception.
    Pre booked departure transfer to the airport:
    You will be collected at your accommodation 3 hours before your flight departure time.
    In case of flight cancellations, changes or if you are not able find the driver, please contact the emergency phone number: (0034) 986 56 50 26 (24 hours).

  • Group leader

    This is a self-guided trip for those who prefer to walk independently, but with our assistance to take out the stress of the logistics and planning. We arrange your accommodations, provide you with a map and route notes so that you can walk at your own pace, while your bags are transported from one hotel to the next. As this is a self-guided holiday there is no group and no leader. There maybe others on the same departure date as you, but you will not be organised together. The routes notes contain a 24-hour emergency assistance telephone number should you need it and in emergencies, the hotels are normally able to dispatch a taxi or pick you up themselves. They may wish to charge for this service. It is important that you are happy reading maps and following route notes, we make these as accurate as possible and they are regularly checked.

  • Visas

    Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveller. Entry requirements can change at any time, so it's important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Your consultant will also be happy to point you in the right direction with acquiring visas. Visas can take several weeks to process, so familiarise yourself with any requirements as soon as you have booked your trip to allow for processing time.

    Visas are currently not required for Australian, New Zealand, US, Canadian or UK/EU passport holders wishing to visit Spain. Other nationalities should check with the relevant embassy or consulate in their home country for up to date visa information.

  • Is this trip right for you

    This is a self-guided trip, with accommodation, route notes and a map provided. Your bags will be transported from one hotel to the next. While this affords you the freedom to go at your own pace, bear in mind there will be no group and no leader.

    Due to health and safety reasons, the minimum number of travellers on this trip is 2. Book with your friend or family member, as we are unable to match you with other solo travellers.

    You will need to be in good health and able to walk for hours at a time. There are some up-and-down sections, and the terrain varies from well-defined paths to rocky trails.

    Confidence in reading maps is essential. The maps provided are as accurate as possible and are checked regularly.

    On this trip you will have an opportunity to visit a numerous religious sites and this requires a level of modesty. You will need to bring clothes that cover the arms and pants or skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

    Your route notes contain a 24-hour emergency assistance telephone number, should you need it. In emergencies, the hotels are usually able to dispatch a taxi or pick you up themselves (this may incur a charge).

  • Health

    This is a walking trip. All Peregrine travellers need to be in good physical health in order to participate fully on this trip. When selecting your trip please make sure you have read through the itinerary carefully and assess your ability to cope with the style of travel and distances covered each day. Please note that if any traveller is unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or other members of their party, Peregrine reserves the right to exclude them from all or part of a trip without refund.

    You should consult your doctor for up-to-date medical travel information or for any necessary vaccinations before departure. We recommend that you carry a first aid kit as well as any personal medical requirements (including a spare pair of glasses) as they may not easily be obtained at the locations on this trip. Please ensure that you are adequately prepared.

  • Food and dietary requirements

    While travelling with us you'll experience the vast array of wonderful food available in the world. All breakfasts and most of the dinners on this self-guide trip are included, but you will have to pack your own lunches for the walking parts.
    Vegetarians might find the menu selection less varied than they would see at home. Vegetarianism is not as common in this region and generally the choices are basic, involving vegetables, soups, salads, bread, cheese, fruit, yoghurt, eggs etc. Vegans and those on gluten-free diets may find this region very challenging and may need to supplement meals with their own supplies from supermarkets and markets. Wherever possible we will cater for dietary needs for any included meals, but there may be times when those with special requirements may need to provide their own.

  • Money matters

    CURRENCY Spain has now adopted the common currency of the European Union, the Euro (EUR).

    CASH
    The most convenient and cheapest way to acquire money in Europe is via an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) or Bancomat as they are often referred to. Check with your bank in advance concerning the suitability of your account / card overseas and any international fees that will be applied. You can withdraw local currencies easily at airports, major train stations and most city centres, but be sure to bring some extra emergency cash in a major currency that can be exchanged if the ATMs are not functioning. When leaving home don't forget your PIN and make sure you know the telephone number for cancelling your card if it is stolen. Keep this in a safe place. Credit cards are not always accepted in stores and restaurants. We recommend you carry some cash to pay for restaurant bills and other services.

    SPENDING MONEY
    When it comes to spending money on the trip, every traveller is a little different. You know your spending habits better than we do, so please budget a sensible amount for things like meals not included, drinks, shopping, optional activities and laundry. It's always better to bring a little more than you think you'll need. Also make sure you've read your trip details thoroughly so you know what's included in the trip price and what isn't. This should make budgeting a little easier. You'll find this info in the Inclusions section of your Essential Trip Information (that's this document).

    TIPPING
    On this trip, we have included gratuities for the essential services that you will receive as part of your tour package. Where applicable, this will cover tips to drivers, specialist local guides and restaurant staff for included meals.
    You may wish to put aside some money for your own tipping, such as when you are doing our own optional sightseeing or activity that involves local guides and/or drivers, when joining in optional meals or dining out on your own, or for porters, bellboys and other hotel staff, including room-cleaning staff. In these instances, we advise you to carry small notes of local currency each day to make tipping easier. The amounts can vary greatly according to destination. Tipping in Europe, although not compulsory, is a widespread practice. Tips for good service are appreciated, if not expected. The amount depends on your resources, tipping philosophy and the circumstance. In restaurants, look out for any service charges. Tipping is applicable only at restaurants that have waiters and waitresses. If you order your food at a counter, don't tip. At restaurants with table service menus usually state (at the bottom) if the service is included. If so you don't need to tip, although if you're pleased with the service you can round up a few euros. If the menu states that the service is not included, tip about 10% by rounding up or leaving the change from your bill. Typically, it's better to hand the cash to the waiter than to leave it on the table, particularly in busy places where the wrong party might pocket the change. In some places, you may want to tip in cash even if you pay with your credit card, otherwise your tip may never reach your waiter.
    When you're paying for taxis, round up to the next euro on the fare (maximum 10 percent). Use common sense! If you feel like you're being driven in circles or otherwise ripped off, skip the tip.
    Carry some change. If you stop at a public WC, you may have to tip the attendant anywhere from a bit of change to €1.50.
    If you're not sure whether (or how much) to tip for a service, ask your tour leader for advice.

    EMERGENCY FUNDS
    Please also make sure you have access to an additional US$500, to be used when unforeseen incidents or circumstances outside our control (e.g. a natural disaster, civil unrest, strike action or an outbreak of bird flu) necessitate a change to our planned route.


    BUDGET Please budget for additional meals and expenses while on your trip. We suggest EUR 250.00 for meals not included on this trip. Our suggestion is based on past traveller feedback but you may choose to spend more or less.

  • Climate and seasonal

    SUMMER
    Summer temperatures can be extreme in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.

    SHOULDER SEASON
    In contrast, weather in shoulder season can be unpredictable, and snow is not unheard of at higher altitudes. If you travel at the start or towards the end of the European season please pack accordingly with warm and/or waterproof clothes (preferably layers). The advantage of travelling during this time is that there are less tourists around.

    SPANISH SIESTA:
    Please note that shops, attractions, sights and businesses may be closed for up to 5 hours in the middle of the day for siesta time. This gives the locals time to escape the heat and spend time with their families, eat a large lunch or simply sleep through the most uncomfortable time of day. This means of course that people work later into the evening and dinner time can seem quite late: 9.30pm is not uncommon for family dinner time.

    One of the great things about our trips is that we encourage every traveller to spend time interacting with local people. In order to best be able to do this in Spain, we recommend that you try to do as the locals do - avoid the heat of the day, and stay out later at night.

  • A couple of rules

    Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on our trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land, but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter and in particular, the local people who make our destinations such special places. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader or local representative has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.

    Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.

  • Responsible travel

    Travelling responsibly is all about making good choices. It's about ensuring you have an incredible trip while also having a positive impact on the local environment, community and economy you're travelling in. How can you be a Responsible Traveller? See our tips below:

    - Choose to travel with a responsible travel company like us! We've already offset the main carbon emissions of your trip, so your footprint is already lighter.
    - Consider offsetting your flights when you book your trip/flights with us or your travel agent.
    - Bring a refillable water bottle and some water purification tablets (or a Steripen) to cut down on plastic bottle waste.
    - Be an animal-friendly traveller. Only go to venues that respect animals by allowing them to live normally in their natural environment. Steer clear of venues that use animals for entertainment or abnormal activities and/or keep animals in poor and unnatural conditions.
    - Eat at local restaurants, buy from regional artists and support social enterprises so you can contribute directly to locals and their economy.
    - Always be respectful of local customs and ask permission if you want to take a photo of someone.
    - Learn a few words of the local language and engage with the people around you.
    - Carry a cloth or re-usable bag so you can avoid plastic bags.
    - Give back by making a donation to a local project via The Intrepid Foundation.

    Share your thoughts with us by completing your feedback form after your trip. This helps us to continue to improve our commitment to responsible travel.

  • Accommodation notes

    We have chosen our Peregrine accommodation to provide you with the high comfort, style and authentic feel of the place you are visiting. Expect pleasant accommodation with your own bathroom and heating/air conditioning where appropriate. Most of Peregrine accommodation has lifts or porters to help with your bags, 24 hour reception with English speaking staff and other amenities to make your stay a pleasure after a long day of walking and exploring. The exact style of accommodation indicated in the day-to-day itinerary is a guideline. On rare occasions, alternative arrangements may need to be made due to the lack of availability of rooms in our usual accommodation. This is especially the case on this self-guided walking trip, where, in a busy summer months, lots of pilgrims are traveling on the same route to Santiago de Compostela. A similar standard of accommodation will be used in these instances. Throughout the trip we request that our hotels prepare rooms in time for your arrival, especially if you’re arriving prior to normal check-in time. However this isn't always possible which means you may not be able to check-in immediately on arrival at some hotels. Instead, you can store our luggage and explore your new destination. If you've purchased pre-trip or post-trip accommodation (if available), you may be required to change rooms from your trip accommodation for these extra nights. TWIN SHARE BASIS Accommodation on this trip is on a twin share basis (unless noted otherwise in the day-to-day itinerary). A single supplement is available on this trip. Please check Important Notes section of this document for any exceptions to the single supplement.


    Casa Rectoral de Lestedo

    Enjoy a well-earned feast in Lestedo, staying in a gorgeous old building of original stonework with a modern touch.

  • Transport notes

    This is a walking trip, so majority of your traveling will be done on foot. In places, you will be able to catch a taxi if you don’t wish to walk anymore; however, this cannot be pre-organised or guaranteed.

  • Travel insurance

    Travel insurance is compulsory for all our trips. We require that, at a minimum, you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.
    When on this trip, you won’t be permitted to join until evidence of travel insurance and the insurance company's 24 hour emergency contact number has been provided to us. Please contact your Travel Consultant in order to provide all necessary insurance details..

    If you have credit card insurance we will require details of the participating insurer/underwriter, the level of coverage, policy number and emergency contact number rather than the bank's name and credit card details. Please contact your bank for these details prior to arriving in-country.

How our Travel Expert Service Works

  • 2 The travel expert will help you with creating and customising a trip for you. If you have any questions or concerns relating to the trip, the travel expert will also be able to help you with those.
  • 3 When you feel that your trip is exactly per your wish, you'll be able to book the entire trip here on Bookmundi.
The Advantages of Bookmundi
  • Selected Local Travel Experts All our local travel experts have been chosen based on rigorous selection criteria. In fact, we reject 98 out of 100 local travel agencies, and thereby giving you access to the top 1-2% local travel experts.
  • Secure Online Payment and Financial Guarantee Each and every trip is required to go through Bookmundi's secure payment platform, powered by Stripe and supported by SSL. All payments are therefore carried out in secure manners. We are furthermore member of the Danish Travel Fund which gives you a 100% financial guarantee for any money you pay on Bookmundi, even if we went bankrupt (which we we will not!).
  • Trip Replacement or 100% Reimbursement Bookmundi has hand-picked your local travel expert. Our role, as your trusted third party, is therefore to make sure that your entire experience runs as seamless and secure as possible. We guarantee to you that in the unlikely event where a local travel expert cancels your trip after your deposit or full payment has been made, we commit to replacing these services with another equally qualified agency so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing to replace it, we will give you a 100% reimbursement.
