The stages

These are the stages of the French Way that we will walk in a group. Following in the footsteps of millions of pilgrims over more than a millennium.

Day 0. Before starting

A journey always begins before the first day. And one like this, even more so. 

Two weeks before the trip we will hold a virtual meeting with our team to review doubts, answer questions and give the latest advice, from what to pack in the backpack to how to get to the starting point in Sarria. 

It will be a preparation session complementary to the preparatory guide that we will send you when you book. And there will be a little something at the end. 

Sarria has become one of the most popular starting points of the modern French Way. Thousands of pilgrims start their journey here to reach Compostela by fulfilling the requirement of the last 100 km on foot. And we will be part of that tradition.

Once at the hotel, we will have the first meeting of the group with a welcome cocktail and dinner. This will be a time to get to know each other, meet in person the guide who will accompany us throughout the adventure and talk about what we will face from the next day onwards.

Hotel Alfonso IX in Sarria

Accommodation at Hotel Alfonso IX ****

This stage of the French Way does not disappoint either the first-time pilgrim or the experienced walker.

A stage marked by beautiful landscapes of meadows and lush forests of oak and chestnut trees, which you will cross along tracks, paths, medieval bridges, rustic footbridges and corridors. And small villages of houses scattered throughout the stage.

The end of the day will be in Portomarín, a town that has an amazing history to tell you.

Hotel Vistalegre Spa in Portomarín

Spa session included

The third day will be marked by the presence of the Ligonde mountain range, which divides the section in two: first, a continuous ascent to the village of Ligonde, and then a descent from there to Palas de Rei.

But if you are one of those who prefer to focus on gastronomy and take advantage of the afternoon to rest, there is no doubt that the Arzúa-Ulloa D.O. cheese and a good plate of octopus will delight your palate at the end of the stage.

Hotel Trina 20 in Palas de Rei

Accommodation in the new Hotel Trina 20 or the charming Pensión As Hortas.

This stage of the Camino de Santiago from Sarria is known as "leg-breaker" for its constant ups and downs, and it is also one of the longest. But don't worry. Thousands of people do it every year without major problems.

In addition, it is a little longer than others, but in exchange it offers us the intermediate town of Melide, famous among the most experienced pilgrims for its octopus. á feira served there and for its melindres. 

The end of the day will find us in Arzúa, another of those villages with a great walking tradition.

Another day marked by the presence of marvellous landscapes between forests and meadows that will accompany you throughout the stage. However, we are approaching Santiago, and that means that the sections parallel to the road will have more traffic, and we will see a more humanised landscape.

At the end of the stage we will reach O Pedrouzo, a town that has grown in recent years in the heat of the Camino de Santiago itself, as you can see. 

There we will take a vehicle to return to Arzúa and spend the night.

Finally, the last stage of the French Way!

We will resume the Camino in O Pedrouzo with a quick transfer from our hotel. 

This stage will take us to the Plaza del Obradoiro from where we will be able to contemplate the impressive cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. 

The first heart-pounding sensation will be felt on arrival at the mythical Monte do Gozo, from where you can see the towers of the cathedral just 5 km away. It doesn't matter where you're from, how far you've walked, or how many times you've walked the route: it continues to impress and create a mood of jubilation that will accompany you until you reach the tomb of the apostle.

In the afternoon, we will have our guided tour with an official guide of the city. The aim is to get to know its secrets, beyond the cathedral and the fact of the pilgrimage. Perfect complement to complete the experience. 

Hotel Virxe da Cerca

Accommodation at Hotel Virxe da Cerca ****

The last day of this Camino de Santiago from Sarria is a tribute to your efforts. After a well-deserved and refreshing rest, you will have the whole day free to discover the Holy City: its Cathedral and the rest of its monuments. If you wish, we can also help you with this. And, if you have time, we have some complementary activities that may be of interest.

Walk the route on your own, without a guide, at a reduced price.

How it works

Several times a year we offer the possibility of hiring group experiences, up to a maximum of 16 participantsfor those who prefer to do the route in company.

The way it works is similar to the other services we offer: we take care of all the bookings for the accommodation most interesting, from the luggage transfer between stages, of the contracting of the insurance with coverage of sporting activities, to get you a credential for your Camino stamps, etc.

But, in addition, in this group service the accommodation includes dinner and we put at your disposal a expert guide of the CaminoThe guide, who knows not only the route, but also its secrets, and who will make the experience much more than just burning stages on the way to Compostela. You will also have a support vehicle and on arriving in Santiago a guided tour around the city.

A guide on the Camino always with you

The best thing about this service is having an experienced Camino guide, ready to lead the group's walk, adapting the pace if necessary and giving support to each member.

And also acting as a guide to unravel the mysteries of each stage, of its landscape, historical, artistic and cultural heritage. It is like walking with an open book.

In addition, the guide is complemented by a 24-hour emergency vehicle service. Why? Because sometimes along the way you may suffer sprains and other minor injuries, or you may find yourself short of energy. In these cases, having a vehicle to take you to the end of the stage is essential to ensure that the rest of the group can continue their route, without anyone being left behind.
