Description

Walk the last 100 km of the Winter Way or Camino de Invierno

Those pilgrims willing to get their certificate in Santiago de Compostela, can walk the last 100 km of the Winter Way (or Camino de Invierno).

This way, rather than starting in Ponferrada (beginning of the walk) the departure point is Monforte de Lemos. 

Monforte de Lemos is considered to be the Capital City of the Ribeira Sacra region. This area of Galicia is very popular because of its wine, its vineyards and its landscapes (with terraces and canyons).  

This route is strongly recommended to experienced pilgrims who really enjoy walking.

Day 2: Monforte de Lemos - Chantada (30 km) 

You will leave behind oak woods, small chapels and rural areas on the way to Chantada. Pilgrims walking this stretch will also enjoy the views of the Miño River and the balconies.

Day 3: Chantada - Rodeiro (26 km) 

Chantada is a really nice town, with a medieval heritage that is worth a visit. The most challenging part of the day? The ascent to Monte Faro.

Day 4: Rodeiro - Lalín (22 km) 

Last walking day of the Winter Way, since the path will join together with the Via de la Plata once in Lalín.

Day 5: Lalín - Silleda (15 km) 

You may see more pilgrims on the way from Lalín to Silleda than the previous days (those pilgrims walking La Via de la Plata). This a shorter walking day, you will enjoy peaceful paths and woods.

Day 6: Silleda - Ponte Ulla (20 km) 

The Camino de Santiago walk will continue through small rural area and quiet paths.

Day 7: Ponte Ulla - Santiago de Compostela (25 km) 

Last walking day of the Camino de Invierno and the Via de la Plata, from Ponte Ulla to Santiago de Compostela. The walk starts with an ascent towards the Pico Sacro, and will continue through small rural areas until you reach the outskirts of Santiago de Compostela.

What to do once in Santiago? You can go to the Pilgrim Mass in the Cathedral, visit the Pilgrim’s Office to get your Pilgrim Certificate, and you can even continue the walk towards Finisterre (the End of the World)!
