The Winter Way is known by this name because it was the route chosen by pilgrims in medieval times, to avoid the area of O Cebreiro on the French Way. Due to snow, the route could be closed at certain times of the year.
However today, despite what its name may suggest, the Winter Way (or Camino de Invierno) is not the best route for the colder months. This is due to the difficulty of the terrain, and to the fact that it is a fairly remote route in terms of services. Of course, highly recommended for the most experienced pilgrims, who want to enjoy the wildest Galicia, full of history, nature and spectacular landscapes.
Please note that our itineraries are completely flexible. If you have a different idea in mind (want to add or remove nights, services, etc), you can just let us know.
