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.

Most pilgrims end their journey in Santiago, with few continuing onwards to the actual ending of the Camino bracing the sea air and experiencing true Galicia as the last steps are taken walking to the End of the World.  In terms of ancient pilgrimage, this final and atmospheric section of the Camino led Celts, Romans and other ancient settlers to worship the sun from a point where the earth finished and they could go no further.  Nearby, and an additional deviation, is Muxia closely associated with James the Apostle’s arrival in Spain.  It is surprising therefore, that this is the quietest section of all the Camino.

During the few days it takes to walk away from Santiago to the sea, the Camino passes through true Galicia with its rolling hills, friendly people and delicious local produce much of which is abundant from the surrounding ocean.  During the final day, with the wind blowing from the Atlantic Ocean, a downward facing scallop shell is the full stop to an amazing journey.
