Itinerary

Day 1:

You will be transferred from Santiago Airport to Sarria, on a private van.

Day 2: Sarria – Portomarín (22 km)

The group will depart from the centre of Sarria. The walk to Portomarín is quite peaceful, through rural areas and unpaved paths. We recommend to stop in Morgade, which is half way, to get some rest.

Day 3: Portomarín – Palas de Rei (25 km)

Second day, and probably the most challenging one. We recommend to stop at the church of Santa María de Castromaior.
There are other Romanesque constructions on the way, that are worth a visit.

Palas de Rei will mark the end of this walking day.

Day 4: Palas de Rei – Melide (14 km)

The walk from Palas de Rei to Melide is quite pleasant, as is it is shorter than the previous days. The Camino passes through small rural areas, woods and the countryside (but still some facilities on the way if you need to stop and rest).

Melide is very popular because of the way octopus is cooked. We strongly recommend you to taste this Camino de Santiago delicacy!

Day 5: Melide – Arzúa (15 km)

The way from Melide to Arzúa will take the group through Ribadiso. This small hamlet is in the entrance of Arzúa, and it is considered by many pilgrims “the best spot of the whole French Way”.

What do we recommend to eat in Arzúa? Of course, the local cheese!

Day 6: Arzúa – Pedrouzo (19 km)

Be ready again for a longer walking day (comparad to the previous ones). But the terrain is not particularly challenging.
There are some highlights on the way from Arzúa to O Pedrouzo: for example, the Chapel of Santa Irene.

Day 7: Pedrouzo – Santiago (20 km)

And the final stage of the French Way is here: from O Pedrouzo to Santiago.

The group will stop in Monte do Gozo for a few minutes, right before approaching the city centre of Santiago de Compostela. This is like a tradition, made by all those pilgrims walking the final kilometres of the French Way.

After checking in, it’s time to go to the Pilgrim’s Office to get the Certificate.

Day 8:

Check out Santiago
