Camino de Santiago, Sarria to Santiago de Compostela

Guided Tour - 8 Days / 7 Nights

Walk the final 100km of the Camino de Santiago. From Sarria the Camino enters woodlands, following paths lined with stone walls, and dirt tracks running through farmlands and hamlets.
The green undulating landscape of Galicia will be part of every day’s walk, until the final day when you reach the mythical city of Santiago de Compostela. By walking this final 100 km, and obtaining the stamps in your Camino Passport at appointed locations along the way, you can earn a “compostela”- or certificate of completion of the pilgrimage.
