All adjectives are not enough to describe the authenticity and the experience to live El Camino. Mystic, spiritual, soulful, magic, exciting, use all the ones you wish but definitely this is the ultimate lifetime experience to breathe, to see and to live at least once in our lives.
Different ways have been paved throughout the centuries to reach the city of Compostela in North West Spain where, according to tradition, is buried the Apostol St James.
El Camino is one of the few places in the modern world where you could walk alone through the countryside for miles and miles until you reach your resting place of the day and meet people literally from all over the globe, being there for different reasons, as a mission, for redemption, faith, as a promise, a celebration or simply just traveling.
We can take you all the way from Roncesvalles straight to Santiago if you have time, however our focus is on the last 100 km/63 miles, which is the minimum distance requested to receive the Compostela, the official document which certifies your travel experience of El Camino de Santiago.
Depending on your availability and time we can do it partially or fully walked always having at disposal our private minivan/bus (for small groups) visiting the highlights along the way.
The tour will be combined with the excellent food and wines of the area with some cultural experiences as well.
