Itinerary

Day 1

Sarria
(Arrival)

Make your way to Sarria and your accommodation where you will start to meet fellow pilgrims. Grab a bite in one of the many bars, restaurants and terraces on the river bank, an ideal spot to chill out on your first night.

Day 2
22km

Sarria
to
Portomarin

Your first walk today will see you connect with nature as you walk in shady oak woods, through pretty villages and on quiet country roads. With many places to stop for refreshments enjoy the day walking with as many breaks as you like to enjoy the food and drink as well as chit-chat with other pilgrims. When you arrive in Portomarin we challenge you to run up the steps and do a ‘Rocky’ style celebration!! Visit the main square in town to people watch and relax this evening.

Day 3
25km

Portomarin
to
Palas de Rei

From the village, the Camino crosses the river Minho and climbs steadily uphill. On your way look out for the Roman ruins at Castromaior, an instagram worthy shot can be had here! Passing a number of small churches today, stop in any of these to escape for a moments reflection, before getting back on the Way to arrive in the town of Palas de Rei.

Day 4
29km

Palas de Rei
to
Arzua

Today, although a long day comes with a sense of achievement when you finish as you are now over half way to Santiago de Composetla. Passing through small villages you will arrive at the half way point for today in the town of Melide, stop in one of the many restaurants to try some local specialties. Later today, the Camino will follow a forest track and cross several streams bringing you to the medieval village of Ribadiso, and finally Arzua. Arzua is famous for its cheese so why not sample this in one of the many bars or cafes with a glass of wine!

Day 5
18km

Arzua
to
Rua / Pedrouzo

After you long day walking yesterday you will be glad of this shorter day today. This shaded section of the Camino will pass through woods, along streams and through sleepy villages. Take your time and visit the chapel of Santa Irena, with its unique statues of Santiago. The rest of the way to Rua-O Pino is on a quiet country road. Rua / Pedrouzo is a small quiet stop before your last day to Santiago, so take the opportunity to relax and get well rested before your final day walking.

Day 6
20km

Rua / Pedrouzo
to
Santiago de Compostela

You’re nearly there! The next stage will be Lavacolla where pilgrims traditionally washed in the river before reaching Santiago de Compostela. The tall eucalyptus trees line your way to Monte del Gozo, or Mount of Joy another great sport for an Instagram shot with the statues and Santiago in the background. From here, you can see your goal – the Cathedral of Santiago! After a descent to the city (264m, population 80,000) you’ll be able to witness this UNESCO World Heritage Site up-close. Marvel at the architecture and relish the wonderful atmosphere in this cultural and spiritual mecca.

Day 7

Santiago de Compostela

After breakfast we bid you farewell.
