The terrain is smooth and undulating. At the end we will reach Portomarín, located along the Belesar Reservoir, formed by the Miño River. Hotel accommodation
DAY 3 Stage Portomarín – Palas de Rei 25 Km
We cross the Belesar Reservoir, starting with a slight ascent, which ends in the vicinity of Ligonde.

Here we find multiple signs informing us that we are in a pilgrimage area to Santiago de Compostela, such as the famous “cruzeiros”. Hotel accommodation
DAY 4 Stage Arzúa – Pedrouzo 20 Km
Pleasant terrain and easy to walk, between woods of trees and with gentle swings, alternated with areas near the road, which we will have sometimes to cross, to finally end our route in Pedrouzo. We recommed a visit to the Church of Santiago, in Boente, with a beautiful carving of Santiago Peregrino.
DAY 5 Stage Palas de Rei – Arzúa 28 Km
We enter the lands of La Coruña, where we will find woods of eucalyptus and pine trees, as well as numerous medieval Bridges, such as those of Leboreiro and Fure¬los, and the idyllic locations of the Camino in Ribadiso do Baixo, at the gates of Arzúa. Not to mention, for lovers of good food, Melide, famous for its octopus, and a mandatory stop for pilgrims.
DAY 6 Stage Pedrouzo – Santiago de Compostela 19 Km.
Route of joy, in which the distance does not matter, because you finally reach Santiago. Smooth path, like the previous one, except for the Ascent from Lavacolla to San Marcos,.

You will be part of an organized group whose dates have been scheduled in advance. There will be a guide and a support motor coach with the group throughout the program. Accommodation, meals and luggage transport are the same in both types of trip, whether in Group or self-guided tailor made. You can join a group alone or with other people. If you have your own group, we can organize a specific date with a private guide for you.
In guided groups on foot and by bicycle there is a minimum required of 8 people. If you have booked a guided trip but the minimum necessary has not been reached, we will give you the option to change to the “tailor made trip” mode, on foot and by bicycle, or a full refund on all trips. This does not happen often. For already formed groups of 8 people or more, we can organize guided tours on any date.
You can share a room with another member of the group if you wish and this kind of accommodation is available. Alternatively, you can book a single room, if available.
No particular physical preparation is necessary, however, since it is a camino with walking trails, it would be convenient to have done a basic physical preparation before. Anyway, the support motor coach is available during the whole Camino (only in the Group mode), if it is necessary you can board it at each checkpoint. During the walk there are a series of scheduled stops (checkpoints) and it is here when each participant decides whether to continue walking or to use the support bus for reasons of fatigue or physical problems occurred.
SELF-GUIDED TAILOR MADE PROGRAMS
In the self-guided program you will not be part of an organized group. The start dates are flexible so you can choose your own date. Accommodation, meals and luggage transport are the same in both programs, whether in Group or Custom. The only difference is that in the Customized program you will not have a guide or support bus with you, however you will have a 24 hour information and assistance telephone number (helpline) for any questions or assistance you need.
Accommodation will be in 2 * and 3 * hotels / hostels / country houses for standard programs. The accommodations are located in the towns of the Camino. Unless otherwise specified, hotels are easy to reach on foot. Reservations are based on the availability of the property.
Depending on dates and the space available, it can happen that some Rural accommodation are located outside the towns, and you will have to deviate from the road, you will eventually be informed of this at the moment of booking.
The special programs are usually in Pazos and hotels from 4 * to 5 *. The Pazos are historical buildings made of stone or granite. Some have a swimming pool and garden to relax. Our selection of accommodation is based on the character and the tranquility of the place, therefore the houses are often outside the village (2-5km) and have limited access. The quality is considerably higher than that of a hotel.
You can choose to book the program with departure from the scheduled starting location or require a program with departure from Madrid.
WHAT TO WEAR HOW TO DRESS:
Comfortable sports or trekking footwear (avoid brand new ones). Comfortable shoes to rest after a day on the road. A poncho for the rain or raincoat that covers the backpack. Shorts or long pants for walking, short-sleeved shirts, a sweater or jacket for the night and several spare socks. A hat or cap, sunglasses and sun protection cream. A canteen or bottle of water.
A first-aid kit. Chafing, blisters, and sprains are the most common.
A staff or trekking pole. The documentation compiled with the stages to be carried out, the accommodation vouchers and the pilgrim credential.
THE SPECIAL CAMINO: BY BIKE!
You can bring your own bike and technical equipment or, as alternative, we offer mountain bikes with disk brake for rent. You can also rent some accessories (Saddlebags, travel bag, etc).
The bike will be delivered to the first hotel the night before your trip will start. You will have to place the pedals and straighten the handlebar (tools and instructions are included).
You can choose one of the itineraries offered or request a personalized one. Let us know what your preferences are and we will do our best to tailor the program according to your requests.
