Our original and popular Camino de Santiago tour, the Classic Camino, leads you through the last 70 miles (115km to be exact) of the French Way of St James. This tour departs from Madrid and will take you by train to Sarria where your walking adventure will start.
After a 6-day walk through beautiful landscapes and lush forests, we will end our tour in Santiago de Compostela, covering the last section of the French route of the Camino de Santiago. This tour makes you eligible to receive the official Compostela certificate upon arrival in Santiago.
We’ll stay at unique and historical hotels and family-run bed and breakfasts, all with private en-suite bathrooms. We'll also take the time to taste the best of the local gastronomy along the way, while we become immersed in the history and tradition of this amazing pilgrimage. Classic Camino allows you to walk comfortably with guided support while giving a truly authentic experience.
