Leon to Santiago de Compostella
For any traveler interested in history, art, & culture, the Camino de Santiago certainly ranks as one of the most spectacular trips in the world today. From the 10th Century to the present day, pilgrims have come (by foot and now bicycle) from near and far to experience this enigma of Spain.
For riders of this trail, you can choose between a paved or off-road route as it threads its way across Spain. The scenery is breathtaking with lots of cultural and historical sights along the way.
For those with the time, we highly recommend that you consider our Classic route; we maintain that this journey has the potential to change your life (in good ways). For those wishing a shorter journey we also offer the Regular trip beginning in Leon. On both trips we stay in the best hotels available, ranging from traditional inns to luxurious paradors.

“Trip was well planned. Region is beautiful. Routes were modified to our group level. The meal at Casa de Igrexa exceeded expectations. Thankfully we had wonderful guides who I felt were responsible to ensure that I didn’t get lost and I didn’t. Yay! Guides great with the van support. Never judged when I got into van due to health reasons. Now I would like to do the 2 week camino trip.”
“I enjoyed everything! Guides were amazing. It was more difficult than I expected. Some days are long but I understand that there was a lot of distance to be covered.”
“Perfect trip- it had all expected elements for a Camino. I really enjoyed the Challenge of each day and finding out about ourselves. The facilities were interesting and the food was out of this world!!! So close to the Cathedral in Leon, a Quaint Spain Village, A nice hotel with wonderful food, a medevial castle with the best hosts in the world!!! Food was homemade and delicious, then the San Fransisco Hotel in Compostella was wonderful and patient with very wet and dirty guests on arrival. Riding schedule was hard but we trained and expected long days on the bike. It was hard but the nature of the Camino is to be tough. The Spanish Castle was awesome and so was the restaurant in Sarria. The castle was fasinating, the wine tasting was intreguing, the celtic village was interesting! Juan and Dimitri worked with us every day to get to a reasonable route for our skills. Van/mechanical support: off the Hook!!! Great!!!”
“The whole experience was unbelievable. From the guides, to the people on the trip, the people you met along the way and the ride itself”
