The Camino Francés is the most famous Camino route, walked by millions of pilgrims from all over the globe since the Middle Ages. More than just a pilgrimage, the Camino is a very unique social and cultural experience, and a truly memorable adventure.
Step back in time and follow in the footsteps of medieval pilgrims, walking the full Camino Francés from St Jean Pied de Port in the French Pyrenees to the stunning cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, in Galicia, where St James is believed to be buried.
Breathtaking scenery, towns and cities full of history and quaint villages will be part of this extraordinary journey: From the phenomenal views of the Pyrenees to the vineyards of La Rioja, from the lively tapas bars of Burgos to the magical beauty of O Cebreiro.
A life changing experience for many, the essence of the Camino de Santiago is about enjoying each step of the journey: The fellow pilgrims you will meet and the camaraderie you will encounter along the way will make this trip simply unforgettable. The most famous Camino route of all gets 5 stars from regular walkers.
*Note that in order to receive your Compostela Pilgrim Certificate in Santiago you must walk at least the last 100kms (from Sarria) or cycle at least the last 200kms (Ponferrada) of the route.
We had a memorable Camino walk for our 30th wedding anniversay, together with 2 other couples. We started in Sarria and walked for 6 days. CaminoWays planned the walk for us and everything went smoothly. Our suitcases were always waiting for us at our destination. They recommended an upgrade to the Parador at Santiago, and though it inflated the cost of our package, it was worth every Euro! And I would use CaminoWays.com again without any hesitation.
