The French Way or Camino Francés is the most popular Camino route, famously depicted in Martin Sheen’s movie ‘The Way’ and many best-selling books, such as Peter Murtagh’s ‘Buen Camino’ and Paulo Coelho’s ‘The Pilgrimage’. Discover interesting medieval towns and rugged mountains on this 800-km way from the Pyrenees to Galicia. However if you don’t have a full month to travel, you can start at any point along the trail. For instance, most walkers begin their trek in the town of Sarria to walk the last 100km of this famous trail and get their ‘Compostela’ certificate. Cyclists or ‘bicigrinos’ must start at least in Ponferrada.
Price starts from only €517pps for 6 nights from Sarria to Santiago (includes 10% discount).
Many pilgrims also choose to continue their Camino on to Cape Fisterra, on the Atlantic Coast, taking the Finisterre Way.
Walk from historic Porto to Santiago in just two weeks and take in picturesque towns as you go. If you only have one week you can start in the border town of Tui instead. Explore Tui’s exquisite old town and visit the hilltop cathedral before setting off on your adventure. This relaxed route passes through lush forests, vineyards and terraced fields – perfect for nature lovers. You can also choose to take the less known Portuguese coastal route, perfect for summer.
Price starts from only €690pps for 7 nights from Tui to Santiago (includes 10% discount).
Take the English Way from Ferrol to Santiago as many Irish pilgrims did since medieval times. Highlights on the trip include going for a refreshing swim at A Magdalena beach, admiring the classic seafront balconies of lovely Pontedeume and exploring the Romanesque churches in Betanzos.

Price starts from only €601pps for 6 nights from Ferrol to Santiago (includes 10% discount).
