 Camino de Santiago Spain 10 day tour

 

Intro

Walk the second most frequented pilgrimage after Mecca with our Camino de Santiago Vacation in 10 Days Package. Once a religious journey, the Camino can be many things to different people but spiritual is just one reason for some pilgrims. You will learn about the ancient history of the early pilgrims coming from all parts of Europe in hopes to catch a glimpse of the remains of St. James.   The revelations of the stunning beauty and incredible antiquity of the Camino de Santiago will leave you with speechless.  One of Spain´s most treasured secrets, the region of Galicia will surprise you in its rolling, green, lush scenery, beautiful and soothing.   With every step, embark on the thousand year journey of a legend so sacred and find your way through Galicia on the trail. The trail passes by hamlets, churches and monasteries that date back a thousand years. Relish the unique local cuisine each night after a long walk; and relax in 4 star accommodations in rural local houses and inns that are cozy and inviting. Split some snacks with the local pilgrims you’ll meet on your journey and be prepared to meet fellow trekkers from all over the world. As you are exploring different routes and crisscrossing through pristine scenic Northern Spain, let the spirit of the Camino envelop you on this newfound adventure. Make it to the 100 kilometers mark of the Camino - and when they officially stamp your passport with the completion of the Camino, you’ll wish you had walked even further. While this tour encourages active walking, we are flexible in how much your group is able to do and will have back up van support for those who cannot walk as far.
