Is this trip right for you?
You'll need to be in good health and able to walk for a few hours, with some up-and-down, and on varied terrain – from well-defined paths to rocky trails.
Santiago de Compostela is a beautiful medieval town, but it may get pretty busy at times, with lots of pilgrims arriving every day.
On Day 8 we will take a full day excursion to Ribeira Sacra. Part of the day will be spent discovering the wonders of the region by boat. If water based transport is not your thing, please make sure you inform your leader, who will advise of some alternatives.

Walk the Camino de Santiago, June 2016
Very good trip. Well organised. The only drawback when we arrived in Santiago that because we were a group of 2 people we were not considered as a group for purposes of lining up for getting our Camino certificates. This meant that even though our guide tried to explain that we had a group booking, it meant no difference and we had to come back the next morning for our certificates rather than line up for one and a half hours on the finish day .
