About this trip

El Camino de Santiago is an important medieval Christian pilgrimage dating back to the 9th century. Millions of people have travelled on foot to the sacred shrine of St James the Apostle. Today, pilgrims travel the Way with different motives — breaking away from the rat race, living an authentic moment, making time for mindful reflection.

On this carefully researched tour we trace back along the ancient route starting from the town of Santo Domingo de la Calzada we pass though the wine region of Rioja and the incredible cities of Burgos and Leon with their imposing Gothic Cathedrals. 

We travel though the mesetas, on to the Bierzo region and into Galicia, from where it is just a few days more to arrive at the ancient Cathedral in Santiago — an unforgettable experience. Our Journey is not over yet, as on our last day we head to the coast of Finisterre, known as the end of the world, where strolling bare foot on the beach, you can collect a scallop shell, the symbol of the Camino, to take home as a memory.

All Caspin Journeys tours can be enjoyed by a wide variety of active people with general good health. We pace each day perfectly so that there is time for everyone to enjoy it and not feel under pressure. We encounter a variety of terrain from wide gravel paths, to narrow, rocky trails and gradients vary too. On our more strenuous tours, there are often two levels of the walk from which to choose. Some people walk at a faster pace while others like to chat or take photographs. Some people do well on the ups while others prefer the downs. You may be ahead on the trail in the morning and enjoying strolling at the back later on!
