Experience the famous Camino Frances from Sarria at a relaxed pace with this Easy Walk guided Camino tour. There are Camino de Santiago routes but the Camino Frances is by far the best known, as featured in movies such as Martin Sheen’s The Way. Our Camino Frances Wasy Walk guided tour takes pilgrims on a wonderful journey, walking the last 100kms of the famous Camino Frances route into Santiago de Compostela over 10 days.
Sarria is the pilgrims’ favourite starting point as 100kms is the distance required in order to be able to request your Compostela pilgrim certificate. The group will be walking a manageable distnace of approximately 10kms each day so you can experience the Camino at a gentle pace.
From the market town of Sarria, the group will walk through the rolling green countryside of Galicia, across oak forests, little villages and pretty hamlets.
The group will travel by bus to the trail each morning so you don’t need to pack your bags each day and enjoy your Camino experience in comfort.
All walkers will get their official pilgrim passport so you can stamp it along the way and get your Compostela certificate at the Pilgrims Office.
If you have always dreamt of walking the Camino de Santiago and you wanted to join a guided group to share this experience with, the Camino Frances Easy Walk guided tour is perfect for you.
