Travel back in time as you journey through Northern Spain walking the Camino de Santiago. Our Leon Camino is ideal for the adventurous spirit who enjoys learning about the history and culture of a place, while experiencing the best of Spain's local cuisine, staying in exclusive accommodations and finding those secret places that only local experts can provide. We have carefully chosen this unique journey to allow you to be immersed in a thousand-year-old tradition that has the power to transform the spirit and leave you with a memorable experience.
We have conscientiously crafted an itinerary for the Leon Camino tour that focuses on the history of this ancient pilgrim route while also including unique experiences only available with luxury travel. We will travel through the hilltop towns of Castilla and Leon and across the ancient meadowlands of Galicia. Explore medieval monasteries, see ancient Roman artifacts and even visit a local chocolate factory. This trip allows travelers the freedom to live and become a part of a thousand-year-old story.
Starting in Leon, we will tour the best that the camino has to offer in Astorga and neighboring regions. We will visit the Cruz de Ferro (Iron Cross) where traditionally pilgrims deposit a rock brought from their place of origin. Our actual walk will start in O Cebreiro, the starting point of the Camino in the Galicia region through the Samos monastery following the French camino route for 100 miles to Santiago.
