"If you ever want experience the Camino, CaminoWays is the partner you want. They organized our group of 12 perfectly. The accommodations exceeded our expectations, the food was top notch and the transportation arrangements were spot on! All of that combined to make our pilgrimage a stress free, enjoyable experience for everyone in our group which ranged in age from 17-75."

"This is my second Camino walk using Caminoway. This year it was part of the Norte route and, as before Caminoways provide everything you could want, from the detailed map to luggage labels, but most of all, the really wonderful hotels they booked for us on the way and for our final stop in Finisterre. Thank you"

"Amazing experience - Camino from San Sebastian to Bilbao. Booking through CaminoWays.com was easy. The walk wasn't guided but the maps and information received was enough for us to navigate our own way with no problems. The bags were picked up and delivered with no problems. Most of the hotel accommodation was great. The walk was challenging in parts but was also a fulfilling experience. The scenery was amazing and varied, and the food was SO good. I would definitely recommend this holiday to others."

"Camino Ways set up the whole biking trip, from Leon to Santiago, some 240 miles. We had great bicycles for our 4 cyclists (my brother, sister, wife and myself). We had great lodging each nite with comfortable beds in the best locations in each stay over town at 4 star hotels that Camino had picked for us in advance. In the morning Camino Ways would pick up our luggage and carry to the next town. The food was great at every stop as was the plentiful Rioja. This was a great cycling vacation that Camino Ways made possible. And the cost was very reasonable for such great service. We are planning another section of the Camino next year and will definitely go with Camino Ways."

This cycling trip covers the second half of the Camino del Norte, the Northern Way of the Camino de Santiago. You will be starting your Camino in the coastal city of Gijón, in Asturias, and follow the northern coast into Galicia. On your way, you will be staying in stunning seaside villages and towns, passing sandy beaches and coves; and cycling across lush countryside. As you cross the bridge over the River Eo you will arrive in Ribadeo, the first town in Galicia and home to one of Spain’s most famous beaches: the Cathedrals Beach.

From Ribadeo, the Camino del Norte then heads inland, into rural Galicia. You will cycle to the sleepy town of Mondoñedo, an old capital of the Kingdom of Galicia, where you can admire its grand buildings and cathedral. You will continue along forests, peaceful hamlets and country roads. Don’t forget to claim your Compostela certificate when you arrive in Santiago de Compostela!

*We recommend cycling the Camino only if you have some cycling experience and if you have essential bike maintenance knowledge. Cycling the Camino de Santiago – How it Works.
