Camino de Santiago „Camino Francés“

From Sarria to Santiago de Compostela.

The last hundred kilometres of the Camino de Santiago are meant to be the “classic” section of the popular pilgrims route, which leads through half of Europe. Along this part you cross Galicia, the green and westernmost province of Spain. A diversified landscape, pleasant temperatures and friendly people are accompanying you. And the Galician cuisine is pampering you with regional delicacies from the countryside and sea. Enjoy it with a glass of local Ribero white wine. Take your time, to visit the biggest cultural places of interest. The goal of all pilgrims, Santiago de Compostela, together with its outstanding cathedral is also the last station and highlight of your journey. While eating a “Tarta de Santiago” (cake with almonds) you look back on your walking week along the Camino Francés.

Buen Camino
Gute Beratung und Betreuung auch im Vorfeld, auf individuelle Kundenwünsche wurde eingegangen und diese auch umgesetzt. Die gebuchten Unterkünfte waren alle sehr schön und gut ausgewählt. Die gebuchte Halbpension war auch sehr gut, es gab in der Regel ein dreigängies Abendessen und gutes Frühstück. Verlaufen ist auf dem Camino ja unmöglich bei der guten Beschilderung. Ein wirklich schöner Urlaub.

Spanischer Jakobsweg
Wer nur die letzten hundert Kilometer wandern möchte macht hier nichts verkehrt. Die Unterkünfte sind komfortabel (Merhbett Lager sind nicht unser Ding) und liegen direkt am Jakobsweg. Die Pilgermesse in Sarria ist besonders sehenswert.
