Tour Description

The French Way Pet-Friendly

Thinking about walking the Camino but you don’t want to leave your pet at home? Here you have the solution: you can now take your pet with you on this adventure!

If you are thinking about walking the Camino with your dog, you will be able to complete the last 100 km of the French Way. From Sarria to Santiago de Compostela in 9 stages. Your little friend will walk next to you, stage by stage (around 12 km per day).

Years ago, it was almost impossible to find any accommodation allowing pets inside their facilities. Nowadays in some of them it is possible to stay with our dog. We got in touch with them to create this dreamer route for you and your best fried!

Dogs love walking in the countryside, enjoy nature, the mountains and landscapes as much as we do. The Camino de Santiago tour is as exciting for them as it is for you! Your dog will have its own credential! How does it sound?

You will have time to stop in some of the most singular places and enjoy the gastronomy, take some photos and meet other dog-pilgrims that may have already started the Camino.

Do you think your pet could be walking longer or shorter stages? Do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information. We will inform you about all the possibilities according to your preferences.

Check in

Check in Sarria, last 100km.

Sarria - Portomarín (23 km)

The Camino from Sarria to Portomarín offers you small rural villages, Romanesque-style hermitages and a quiet and pleasant path. After 22 km on the way, you will arrive at Portomarín, one of the most beautiful towns on this section of the Camino.

Portomarín - Palas de Rei (23 km)

This stage will begin by crossing a pine forest, and will take you through a multitude of towns. The church of Santa María de Castromaior stands out, in Romanesque style. The end of the day will take you to the town of Palas de Rei, one of the most emblematic stages of the Camino.

Palas de Rei - Melide (14 km)

Quiet stage, thanks to the division in Melide. When you arrive, don’t forget to try the famous Melide octopus!

Melide - Arzúa (14 km)

Among the main points of interest is the medieval town of Ribadiso before reaching Arzúa, a favorite with pilgrims. Once in Arzúa, we suggest you try its famous cheese!

Arzúa - Pedrouzo (18 km)

A fairly flat walk goes from Arzúa to Salceda, crossing eucalyptus forests and small towns.

Pedrouzo - Santiago (19 km)

And finally the last day of the Camino has arrived. From Monte do Gozo you will be able to see from above the beautiful city of Santiago de Compostela and its cathedral, your final destination. Many pilgrims stop here for a few minutes before starting the descent, remembering the best moments of an adventure that is about to end. When you arrive in Santiago, don’t forget to ask for the Compostela at the Pilgrim’s Office, take a walk through the old town and lie down in the Plaza del Obradoiro. If you still have energy left, we recommend that you continue your route to Muxía.
