      • All breakfasts are included. Breakfasts in Spain usually consist of coffee with milk, toast with ham, olive oil, tomatoes, cheese and butter and jam. Bakery items such as pastries, fruit and juice are also popular. During this trip you can expect different variations of breakfast at the hotels and pensions we stay at but they will all include at least some of the standard breakfast items that are popular in Spain. The land in north Spain is rich and produces almost everything one might want to eat from fish and seafood to good quality meat, vegetables and fruit. Your leader will recommend good places to eat. Sometimes it will be tapas, sharing some “raciones” as a group and sometimes you will be able to choose from the menu. In the Camino de Santiago restaurants and bars offer a set menu called the “Menu del Pergrino” and offer 5 starters, 5 mains and dessert, coffee and drink for about EUR 10-15. If you feel daring you can try the Octopus “Pulpo a la Feira” that Spaniards consider a delicacy and is well cooked and served sliced with paprika, olive oil and sea salt. Sometimes it is also served with “grelos" (boiled sliced potatoes). Mealtimes in Spain are later than in many other countries; dinner is usually taken between 20:00hrs and 21.30hrs. Please be aware that meat and fish are staple food in Northern Spain.  Vegetarians can be catered for, as are other dietary requirements although there may not be the same choice or variety as you have at home and please be prepared to be flexible. Please advise us upon booking.

    Start Samos.

    The trip will start tonight in our hotel in Samos. The group flight will arrive very late in the evening so the main briefing will take place the following morning. There are no activities planned for this evening, so you are free to enjoy Samos as you like. * *

    To Sarria walking through ancient oak forests and quaint villages.

    After breakfast, we will have our main briefing before we start our first walk. Our week starts in one of the most unspoilt sections of the Camino, as we walk through the Galician countryside, populated by a number of traditional agricultural villages. We start with a visit to the monastery of Samos (entrance not included), one of the oldest monasteries in Spain, and will then continue through ancient oak forests to the town of Sarria.

    Walk through the rolling hills of the Galician countryside to Portomarin.

    We continue walking up and down the hills of Galicia to the town of Portomarin, which was rebuilt on a hilltop from its original location in the River Mino’s valley. This was done to escape flooding when a reservoir was constructed in 1962. The old church was moved, stone by stone, to its current location.

    Uphill to the village of Ventas de Naron and on to Palas de Rei.

    We start with a steady ascent to the village of Ventas de Naron, where the terrain levels out. Along the way to Palais de Rei there are plenty of cafes where we can enjoy a break. Palas de Rei marks the half-way point of our trek and we spend the night in a hotel, where we can really feel the spirit of the ‘Camino’ since many walkers stop here.

    Walk to the town of Melide, renowned for its octopus with potatoes dish, and on to Arzua, famous for its cheeses.

    We begin our longest day's walking along a very picturesque stretch of the Camino, as we cross several Roman bridges and walk past mediaeval churches. For lunch we stop in the small town of Melide, renowned for its delicious octopus with potatoes and end our day in Arzua, famous for its cheeses.

    Meet many more pilgrims on the final section to Pedruozo.

    Today’s walk to the village of Pedruozo involves a number of short ascents and descents through woods, fruit fields and eucalyptus. As Santiago draws ever closer, more pilgrims will cross our path, adding to the anticipation of reaching our goal, the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

    Walk to Santiago de Compostela.

    Our final day’s walk sees us climbing up to the famous Monte do Gozo, where pilgrims traditionally took in their first views of the towers of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. As part of the centuries-old tradition, we make our way through the city’s streets and crowds to Plaza del Obradoiro, dominated by the impressive Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, where most Fridays we can observe a mass service with the impressive “Botafumeiro” incense swinging.

    Free day in Santiago de Compostela.

    Free day to explore the historic city of Santiago at your own pace. There are plenty of things to do; you can visit the spectacular cathedral and stroll around the narrow streets of the World Heritage-listed Old Town with its diverse architecture. Alternatively, you can visit the museum of Galician Life, home to interesting exhibits of Galician traditions and art. You can also join a day excursion to Cape Finisterre, which was believed to be the end of the known world in Roman times. The Cape is also the final destination for many pilgrims on the way of St. James.* *
