"This is the second time we have used CaminoWays - last year on the Camino Finisterre and this year the Via De La Plata. As with last year CaminoWays was very efficient - hotel bookings and luggage transfer effectively completed. The hotels varied depending on location but outside the main cities (Sevilla) they were - as described by CaminoWays - family hotels or hostels - all clean, with comfortable bedrooms and menus providing good food. In Sevilla the Hotel NH Plaza de Armas was excellent - very well equipped with a simply outstanding choice of food at breakfast. Prior to departure CaminoWays at all times kept me aware of the progress of my holiday planning. So all in all - an excellent company and a great way to do Caminos (or bits of them)."

I returned from my 10-day walk from Seville along the Via de la Plata, and just wanted to say that I thought it was excellent.  The route was really interesting with lots of variety to keep your attention, there was easy walking along the mainly dirt roads and trails, and the waymarking was so good it would have been difficult to get lost. The hotels were all good, with special commendations for Casa de los Mercadores (Seville), La Fabrica (Fuente de Cantos), Hotel Diana (Villafranca de los Barros), and Hotel Nova Roma (Merida). It was a great trip and a greart experience, and I hope to get back to do more some day! Also, many thanks to you and Roland for helping sort out the luggage issues early on!

On this cycling tour of the Via de la Plata Camino route, you will cycle from the beautiful University city of Salamanca to the city of Santiago de Compostela. The first part of this section of the Vía de la Plata cycling is dominated by flat agricultural land and red earth tracks; while in the second part of your journey the landscape begins to alternate between red earth farmland and greener hills and woodland. Along the way you will pass through the town of Puebla de Sanabria which is home to an imposing medieval castle.

*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.
