CAMINO FRANCES TOURS
We have many options for you to experience the famous Camino Frances route, whether you have a few days or several weeks at your disposal.
While it takes approximately five weeks to complete the full Camino Frances route, many pilgrims decide to walk the last section from Sarria, start their walk from different points along the route or even walk different stretches each year.
The market town of Sarria, in the region of Galicia and just over 100kms away from Santiago, is the pilgrims’ favourite starting point as this is the distance required for walkers to obtain their ‘Compostela’ pilgrim certificate.
