The Full Camino de Santiago

Take a step out of your every-day life and clear your head. This is your time to explore and discover. The full Camino routes can be challenging, but they are absolutely worth it.

The Via de la Plata is a historic and popular pilgrimage route in Spain that spans approximately 1,000 kilometers (620 miles). It is also known as the Silver Route or the Camino Mozárabe. The route starts in the southern city of Seville and ends in Santiago de Compostela, the final destination of the famous Camino de Santiago.

The origins of the Via de la Plata date back to Roman times, when it served as a major trade route between the cities of Seville and Astorga. The name "Via de la Plata" actually derives from the Arabic word "balata," meaning road. Over the centuries, the route gained significance as a pilgrimage path to Santiago de Compostela, joining the main Camino Francés in Astorga.

The Via de la Plata offers a unique and diverse experience to pilgrims, showcasing the rich cultural heritage and natural beauty of Spain. The route takes travelers through a variety of landscapes, including vast plains, rugged mountains, and charming villages. Along the way, pilgrims can explore historical sites, Roman ruins, medieval bridges, and impressive cathedrals.

We offer customised holiday packages on the Via de la Plata to suit all budgets. So please get in touch if you would like to find out more about completing the full Via de la Plata and to get a personalised quote and itinerary.

The Camino de Invierno or Winter Way traditionally developed as an alternative route for pilgrims to walk in Winter when the climb up to the summit of O Cebreiro would be impassable due to snow. The route followed by the Camino de Invierno has been in use since Roman times and was also used by Napoleon’s troops in the early 19th century. It is also through this area that the first railway connection with Galicia and the rest of the peninsula was built in 1883. The Camino de Invierno passes through all four provinces of Galicia. Starting from Ponferrada which is just outside Galicia the route quickly enters the province of Ourense where it follows the Sil River. As you move closer to Santiago then the route passes through the southern part of the province of Lugo before briefly going through the Deza district which is part of the province of Pontevedra before finally arriving at Santiago de Compostela in the province of A Coruna. Today the solitude that can be experienced on this route appeals to people who are looking a more reflective experience. During the peak season on the Camino Frances for those that find the crowds too much this is a great alternative route to Santiago from Ponferrada. Solitude is not all you will find on this route. Just one day walking from Ponferrada you will come upon the World Heritage site of As Médulas. Moving on you then pass through parts of the Valdeorras and Ribeira Sacra wine regions. Romanesque churches and monasteries abound and a particular highlight is the town of Monforte de Lemos. From Lalin you then join the last section of the Via de la Plata to arrive from the south-east into Santiago de Compostela.

Starting in Auvergne, famous for its green, dormant volcanoes, the Camino runs through green yet rocky, undulating landscapes. This leg may even seem to be more inhabited by grazing sheep and cattle than by man if it was not for its numerous medieval chapels, churches, towers and well-preserved towns that modern pilgrims encounter every day.
