From Palas do Rei to Santiago de Compostela (7 Days/6 Nights)
Our “Camino Short Walking Days” trip makes it possible to absolutely everybody to experience the Way of St James / Camino de Santiago and reach the world-known Santiago de Compostela. On an “Camino Short Walking Days” trip, walking days are shortened to an average of 3 hours/13 kilometres. You can also decide how to organise your day, starting at the time you like with no pressure about starting too early. The daily walk will fill a half day, leaving the other half free. With this walking holiday, you will have a chance to walk the last 70 kilometres to Santiago de Compostela and still experience the feeling of being a pilgrim of modern times.
On this section, we follow the last 65 kilometres of the French Way / Camino Frances, the most traditional of all the pilgrims’ ways to Santiago de Compostela and the best known internationally. The journey starts in Palas do Rei, passing through Melide well-known for its Galician seafood gastronomy, and continues all along the French Way, through the green hilly landscapes of Galicia, eucalyptus woodlands, and typical rural villages.
Everyday, during the walk, you are guaranteed a high level of comfort and gastronomy. The Camino is clearly marked with the ?Scallop Shell? showing you the way. We have split the stages to short distances, so daily walks are of 13 kilometres on average, which means there are accessible to absolutely everybody.
