WALKING TOUR OF THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
A walking tour covering the last 100 kilometres of the French Way of Camino de Santiago is a great way for a solo travel to find both company and comfort on the pilgrimage.
This section of the Camino is the most famous, and most walked, and offers unrivalled views of the landscape of Galicia.
Groups of six to 15 members are accompanied by a guide for a trip that takes six walking days and seven nights. The guide will check you in at your accommodation, help you with formalities, transfer your luggage and handle all other administrative aspects of the tour. All you have to do is walk.
Accommodation has been selected by Camino Ways to offer comfort and character combined with excellent local cuisine.

The pilgrim passport is the progress book for those doing the Camino de Santiago. Travelers must get the right number of stamps along the way to receive their ‘Compostela’, the religious certificate proving they have completed the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
Pilgrims must collect at least two stamps per day from churches, town halls or other official establishments on their way to Santiago (at least for the last 100km, if they are walking) and show their stamped Pilgrim Passport at the Pilgrims Office once they reach Santiago de Compostela.
Those walking or cycling the Camino for non-religious reasons can get a non-religious certificate in the Pilgrims Office in Santiago and they will also need the right amount of stamps on their pilgrim passport.
