Itinerary highlights
Today the pilgrimage route is in many ways a steadily growing tourist attraction for Northern Spain and can sometimes almost be perceived as too busy. But the trail still has some untouched gems left and on selected occasions we will take you off the beaten track to explore what others might pass by. That is why, apart from biking more than 320km, during the tour we schedule interesting visits such as wine tasting in D.O. Bierzo and rambling among Roman quarries in Las Médulas (World Heritage Landscape). Fun cooking moments and picnics with local products are also very appreciated features during the trip.
During this Camino de Santiago group biking we discover the cities of León and Santiago and get to visit two of Spain’s most beautiful Cathedrals. In Astorga, we learn all about the Gaudí period in the region. Small charming medieval Maragato villages O Cebreiro, Castrillo de Polvazares and Molinaseca make a perfect blending of large and small. Of course we will be by your side for anything you may need and will provide you with the best gastronomy and charming places to rest by the end of the day.


Day 1

Once in León, we will stay near the Cathedral and tapas streets of Barrio Húmedo. Meet up with the tour guide. Short presentation followed by bike testing. First Compostela stamp on our Pilgrim Passport and visit the beautiful Gothic cathedral. Early dinner.

Day 2

The cycling starts with a “must-stop” at the San Marco Square in León and a picnic lunch in Hospital Órbigo where we cycle over its legendary bridge. We reach Astorga where we can visit Gaudi’s Episcopal palace and then enjoy dinner on your own in this beautiful city.

Day 3

One of the harder workouts over the León Mountains takes us by some of El Caminos’ prettiest villages and the hard work gets paid off with a picnic up at the Cruz de Hierro. Then we roll down towards Molinaseca and El Bierzo, where we stay at a charming countryside hotel and enjoy cooking activities and dinner at dusk.

Day 4

Rest day in El Bierzo, where we take the opportunity to visit the beautiful Médulas mines landscapes and taste wine at one of the DO bodegas. Lunch on your own. Cooking and dining in the evening.

Day 5

We continue towards Galicia. At the appropriate place, we have a picnic to manage the slopes. In the beautiful Celtic village of O Cebreiro and its surrounding valleys you may leisure walk in the afternoon and enjoy amazing views before dinner at the hotel.

Day 6

The morning begins with a descent towards the Monastery of Samos, that we visit guided by a monk. Picnic lunch by the creek beneath the Monastery before heading to Sarria, a common starting point for walking pilgrims and with several dining options.

Day 7

The trail takes us to the interesting village of Portomarín, a village that Franco decided to move stone by stone in 1962 and “save” from drowning under the water of a nearby new dam. We are in green Galicia and will find beautiful countryside landscape, perfect for picnic lunch. Tonight we will have dinner and rest at a spa-hotel.

Day 8

Together with a strengthening picnic on the way, we will get a glimpse of one of the Cathedrals’s towers: our last day of the Camino de Santiago group biking takes proud pilgrims to Santiago. In the evening we enjoy a farewell dinner at one of Santiagos best restaurants.

Day 9

Day off to get your Compostela diploma. Optional day trip to Finisterre, where the Camino really ends and pilgrims traditionally burn their clothes and take a shell as evidence for their pilgrimage.

Day 10

Transfer to airport.
