Last 100km of the Camino
The Last 100KM of the Camino de Santiago allows people who don’t have the time to walk the full Camino to get a taste of The Way and finish in Santiago de Compostela. Walking over 100km also makes you eligible to receive the Compostela (Pilgrim Certificate). This stretch of the Camino de Santiago takes approximately one week, making it a very feasible trip for many.
All of the last 100km walks to Santiago de Compostela are predominantly through the undulating landscape of Galicia which is renowned for its rolling hills and lush vegetation and is a wonderful place to walk or cycle, and soak in rural Spain.
