This version of our Camino de Santiago is design for independent travelers who would like to walk the last 100 km / 62 miles of the Pilgrimage trail, which is necessary to possible receive La Compostela certificate.

You will arrive at the airport of Santiago and be meet by a private chauffeur who will transfer you to the point where you will start the trail making your way back to Santiago city. This trip is ideal for those who do want to lug all their baggage every day when walk, what we have done is set up a private chauffeur who will pick up and drop off your baggage at each accommodation every evening. You have the option as well at the end of the day during the time when your chauffeur is transferring your baggage to be picked up along the way and dropped off with your luggage at your accommodation.

This tour can be done at another time of the year, but without the St. James festival of course (July 25th)! Just let us know your dates and we will quote a price for you.
