Beautiful city. A visit to the cathedral is a must. Lovely streets with great restaurants, pinxos bars and cafes.

This is more than an activity or a weekend away, this is a life changing experience. One I shall never forget. 40 days of walking; 3 stages the physical the mental and the spiritual. Most reach all three. Others find it hard to leave the modern world behind. I took no phone or computer. It was wonderful. The elements of... More

My Camino started from Ponferrada, got my compostela from Santiago and because of a ankle injury I took a bus to Muxia and after one day, walked to Lires and then to Finisterra. What I can say, recommend or what my good advice is? First of all, no matter how long your Camino is, it is your Camino and it... More

The Camino is about 2 things, the first is all about the amazing people you meet on the way, some fantastic, some religious, some crazy and even the odd 'Camino Angel', the second involves the game we created and affectionately called 'Get Dem Beds'. This is due to the fact that if you're late to an albergue aka 'Pilgrim's Hostel'... More

Just completed Sarria to Santiago stage (115k). Was an experience of a life time. Loved walk, weather perfect, bags moved daily fro €3. Most accomodation 8/10. Food Spanish won't starve but not up to the standard of Irish restaurants but cheap and of course buckets of cheap wine.

The Camino is the ultimate of "You get out of it, what you put into it". How far you walk, the type of accommodation you choose to stay in and the type of food you finish off your day with is absolutely not important. What is important is the people you meet and the peace you find.

Generally a wonderful, enriching experience particularly the people who you meet on the way. Stayed in pensions and 2 star hotels and booked the trip myself. I walked from Sarria to Santiago over 5 days on my own, as my time was limited. I generally reached each stop en route between 3 and 4pm having set out between 7 and... More

We started the camino end of February and the majority was during March, because of some bad weather we couldnt walk from St Jean to Roncessvalles over the mountain, we had to walk the Valcarlos route & the last bit just before Roncessvalles up the side of the mountain the snow was so thick the signposts disappeared and the fence...

I am not the pilgrimage sort but this is a stress free holiday where your biggest decision is how far to walk before you stop and then what to eat and drink when you do. The salads are great and reasonable. Nothing was over priced at any of the cafes we stopped at. We were lucky with good weather. The... More
