  1. STAGE 1 – MADRID AIRPORT – SARRIA – 0 KM

    Arrival at Madrid Airport and transfer to Sarria via high speed train, a 5-6 hour journey. Be sure to select a flight that will land in Madrid early in the day to give you plenty of time to reach the train station by midday.

    After checking into your lodge for the evening, you can choose to either sit back and relax or opt for a stroll around this town.

  2. STAGE 2 SARRIA – PORTOMARIN – 21 KM (13 miles)

    A great start to the trip as you’ll spend most of the day in the quiet countryside, discovering the peacefulness of rural Galicia. You’ll end with a long downhill walk into Portomarin, your home for the evening, along the banks of the Mino River.

  3. STAGE 3 PORTOMARIN – PALAS DEL REI – 24 KM (15 miles)

    Another peaceful day in the countryside, slowly meandering through local villages and hamlets. Some interesting untended Celtic ruins can be seen along the way if one has the strength to make a short 1 km detour.

  4. STAGE 4 PALAS DEL REI – SEDOR – 24 KM (15 miles)

    Today takes you through Melide, a village that has made Pulpo Gallego legendary throughout the country. A simple recipe of octopus, potatoes and paprika but when prepared just right, lights up your taste buds!

  5. STAGE 5 SEDOR – PEDROUZO – 24 KM (15 miles)

    As you get closer to Santiago, you start walking through more and more Eucalyptus treed forests. The aroma is delightful as is the rest of the trail.

  6. STAGE 6 PEDROUZO – SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA – 20 KM (13 miles)

    A shorter distance in walking today in order to take full advantage of the city’s sites. There is tons to see and do, on top of enjoying the fulfillment of reaching your destination!

  7. STAGE 7 SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA – MADRID – 0 KM

    Afternoon return via high speed train to Madrid.
