Camino Short List
Each year people from all corners of the world flock, in their thousands all with the purpose of completing the mighty Camino de Santiago. Each with their own motives and inspiration behind their journey to the Field of stars, Santiago de Compostela. Camino Short List
Walking the Camino is a truly unique experience, not only for the beautiful scenery and the undeniable camaraderie along the way but for the sense of journeying that few other experiences can offer. On the Camino, all roads lead to Santiago, but which one will you take?
The Classic Camino (Camino Frances)
The French Way is the route that has become ubiquitous with the pilgrimage. Setting off from St Jean Pied de Port in the Pyrenees and covering an impressive 800km on the way to the finishing point of Santiago de Compostela. While many valiant souls brave the route in its entirety each year, naturally this is not plausible for everybody. The Camino can be completed in various sections, starting and finishing wherever you please. To receive the Compostela certificate, pilgrims must walk a minimum of 100km, the section from Sarria to Santiago covers 111km and is a popular choice among Camino enthusiasts with limited time.

Camino Portuguese Coastal Way
Experienced pilgrims and those who have already completed the French Way may look towards the Portuguese Coastal Way for an alternative. A milder climate in this part of the Iberian Peninsula makes this an excellent choice for the summer months.

The Portuguese Coastal Way then crosses over to Galicia finishing up in the enchanting city of Santiago de Conpostela to receive your Pilgrim certificate.
