The famous Camino de Santiago, also known as St James’ Way and the French Way, is a wonderful 500 miles trail which has been walked by pilgrims for over 1000 years. For most pilgrims, the Camino de Santiago ends at the magnificent Romanesque Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela – reputedly the final resting place of St. James the Apostle, although a further few days of walking takes the pilgrim to ‘the end of the earth’ at Finisterre with its downward pointing scallop shell signifying the actual ending, and where pilgrims once burned their boots.  

We feature the complete Camino de Santiago route from St Jean Pied-de-Port in France all the way to Finisterre (End of the Earth) in Galicia, as well as the lesser known, but increasingly popular Portuguese Way, from Tui to Santiago de Compostela. 

We organise pilgrim journeys for the complete route as well as umpteen combinations of the various in-between stages – we tailor our itineraries to suit you. Our Pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago range from solo walkers to large organised groups who come from far and wide across the globe to embark on this unique adventure. With our profound knowledge of the routes and our established, reliable, local support along the entire route, New Experience Pilgrims has the expertise and devotion to offer an individually arranged spiritual journey of a lifetime; one we are certain will hold a special place in your heart forever.

Starting in Sarria, you soon leave the city to follow attractive rural cart tracks weaving between stone walled fields or wander along quiet roads through hamlets and small farming communities. The approaches to Santiago remain just as peaceful through small villages and eucalyptus forests. Finally, in the last few hours and with the anticipation of reaching your goal, you enter Santiago through its clean and attractive suburbs to reach one of Spain’s most beautiful and cultural medieval cities.

The Walking

Walking this section of the Camino involves average daily distances of about 11 miles (longest day 15 miles) and follows well marked paths with good surfaces.  We provide a step by step guide to the trek and location of your overnight hotel along with other supporting notes such as language and history. The itinerary below has a brief summary with approximate distance, ascent and descent.

The Experience


Without doubt this holiday is about more than the usual joys of walking! In addition to the good food and wines served in your hotel at the end of each day’s trek, you will also enjoy the special atmosphere arising from the comradeship quickly established between walkers of many nationalities. At the beginning of the holiday you will be provided with a pilgrim passport. If you have this stamped at two different points each day and present it at the Pilgrim’s office by the Cathedral you will receive the ‘Compostela’ certificate commemorating your journey. You can then witness or participate in the daily Pilgrims’ Mass – an intensely memorable and moving experience.


 

Baggage Transfers

Luggage may be transported from each hotel to the next enabling you to travel with a day rucksack. Unlike our other treks, baggage transfer is an optional extra as many Perigrinos (Pilgrims) prefer to travel light and carry their own. See prices below for costs. There is a limit of 20Kg per bag. 

Variations

Our basic itinerary can be varied when possible. You may take rest days in one of the existing stops or stay longer at the end to explore the historical and cultural city of Santiago. Just contact us with your wishes and we will provide a quotation.

Walk Grading

Self-Guided – Easy, with long days. Total for standard week ignoring variations:- Ascent 1180m, Descent 1270m, 70 miles.
