General Information

What is the best time to do the Camino de Santiago?

The Camino de Santiago can be started on any day of the year, always taking into account the weather and the season in which you want to travel, so that your clothes are the right ones.

How do I get to my starting point on the Camino?

The best way to get to the starting point of your Camino de Santiago is to arrive at the airport, train station or bus station nearest to the town from where you will start walking.

Once you confirm your Camino, you will send us the arrival information for your flight, train or bus and, from there, we organize a private transfer to the town where you should start your Camino.

Can I travel alone?

Yes, you can. All the routes on the Camino de Santiago are suitable for pilgrims to travel solo.

Also, whether you are travelling alone, or travelling accompanied but want to sleep in a single room, Santiago Ways offer this option to you.

We can book all your nights of accommodation in single rooms at an additional cost. We suggest you book well in advance since they are usually in high demand.

On the Camino de Santiago, you will find hundreds of pilgrims walking on their own. Many of them may have come to the Camino alone; others have probably moved away from their fellow travellers for a few hours because of the difference in speed when walking.

In any case, all the routes on the Camino are very well signposted, so you will have no problem if you go on your own.

Am I going to have an accompanying guide on el Camino de Santiago?

Most routes on the Camino de Santiago are done in a self-guided mode. Thus, each traveller has the opportunity to advance on their own and at their own pace along the routes marked on the complete itinerary of the route, which is sent one month before starting the Camino.

However, we also offer organized groups with accompanying guide on the stretch from Sarria to Santiago. We have specific dates already established, and we carry them out in groups of up to 15 people, with guaranteed departures. The guides in charge of these routes speak English and Spanish.

We already have all the dates published until 2021, so you are encouraged to reserve your place before the groups are filled.

What does the complete route itinerary consist of?

The complete route itinerary of the route is a guide that we prepare for you with information about the maps, route profiles and places of interest, kilometre by kilometre on each of the stages that you will go through on the Camino de Santiago.

The travel distances and travel times indicated for each route on both the website and the itinerary we send you are based on reference values. It depends on each pilgrim exactly how they carry out these times and distances, according to the speed at which they progress.

When do I get the complete route itinerary?

You will receive it by email one month before starting your Camino along with all the documentation for the trip: accommodation reservations, baggage transfers, among others.

How many kilometres should I walk on each stage?

In Santiago Ways, we adapt each stage to the needs of our pilgrims, so that they can travel according to their physical capability and the number of days available.

On average, a stage of the Camino de Santiago has 15 to 20 km. On most routes, however, we can organize your Camino so that you walk fewer kilometres, dividing some stages into two parts, depending on what is most comfortable for you.


Advice

What should I consider to prepare physically?

Both sedentary people and those who regularly exercise should physically prepare for doing the Camino de Santiago.

Sedentary people can start with moderate activity and continue progressively. They should start by taking small 20-minute walks, two or three times a week. It is suggested to increase the time until you reach walk about 4 or 5 kilometres every hour.

People with regular physical activity can start by walking from 45 to 60 minutes a day and increase the amount of time and kilometres they travel in the same span of time.

Generally, it is recommended to start training for about three months before starting the route.

How far in advance should I make a reservation?

There is no minimum number of days in advance to book, although on certain dates the occupancy of the accommodation is higher, especially in high season, and in dates of religious interest such as the San Fermin Festivals in Pamplona, from 7th to 14th July, or the Feast of Santiago the Apostle, on July 25th.

Therefore, in order to guarantee availability in the best accommodation, we suggest you book as much in advance as possible, so that we can meet all of your needs.

What clothes and hiking equipment are indispensable?

For any of the Caminos, we suggest you to bring the following items: light and fast drying clothing, waterproof jacket and trousers, sun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, a pair of shoes suitable for hiking, trekking poles, a pair of shoes to rest in, a jacket that doesn't take up much space and a bottle to carry water.

Depending on the time of year in which you make the route, these items may vary.

Remember that with Santiago Ways, you have included a baggage transfer service between stages, so we will take your backpack from one accommodation to another so that you only worry about walking (maximum 1 piece of 20 kg per person).

For this reason, we suggest you prepare a second backpack, much smaller, that you can carry with you every day with water, sunscreen, cap, sunglasses, documents, some food and cash.

How does the baggage transfer between stages work?

Every day, at 8:00 am, you must bring your luggage, properly labelled, to the reception. One of our carriers will pick it up and take it to the place where you are going to stay on your next stage.

Delivery time varies according to the distance between stages and the carrier's delivery route. Usually, delivery is made before 4 p.m.

Should I take out travel insurance?

To complete any of the routes on the Camino de Santiago, it is advisable to have travel insurance with all the necessary coverage, especially emergency evacuation and medical care.

To do this, we suggest you take out the Travel Assistance Insurance and Cancellation Insurance that we offer you in Santiago Ways. If you want more information about it, we will be happy to answer your questions.

Do all rooms have a private bathroom?

When will you tell me where I am going to stay?

We work with multiple accommodations in all locations which allows us to guarantee the best quality rooms for our pilgrims, provided that they are booked well in advance.

The name and exact location of each hotel is sent about one month before the start of the Camino with all the documentation related to the trip.

Am I going to share a room with strangers?

No. All the accommodations we book for our pilgrims have private rooms with private bathrooms in order to guarantee all the comfort needed torest properly.

Is the accommodation close to the route that I should follow?

All the accommodations that we book are in the centre of the towns or villages. In any case, depending on availability, if any accommodation is somewhat far from the centre, most of them are accessible on foot.

When necessary, Santiago Ways could offer a round trip transfer so that the pilgrim can reach their accommodation in the most comfortable way possible and return the next day to the point on the route from where he must continue the Camino.

What type of accommodation do you reserve?

All the accommodation that we book in Santiago Ways offers the necessary comfort to rest after long days of walking.

Stages on foot

Here we offer you everything that you need to know about the different walking stages that we must face in order to complete the route of the Camino Frances de Santiago from Sahagún to León.

How long does the Camino de Santiago Frances from Sahagún take?

Best time to do the Camino de Santiago from Sahagún

At the time of travelling on the Camino, each pilgrim’s preferences play an important role. These affect not only the route we are going to choose but also the time we get to the end and the time in which we want to complete it.

So, we want to remind you that ultimately each season has its advantages and you have the last word: so with Santiago Ways, it is possible to book any of the routes throughout the year.

Then we will talk about the different months of the year and the advantages and disadvantages of each one of them.

January

The month of January is an option for many pilgrims because it allows them to take advantage of the Christmas break to complete the Camino de Santiago . Although it is true that the temperatures are low, it is also that with foresight and being well equipped their effects may be mitigated.

Hacer el Camino de Santiago en enero

February

In this month the temperatures begin to rise: they are more benign and therefore it is a good time to start on the route taking advantage that there will be hardly any pilgrims and avoid overcrowding.

March

In March the influence of spring is almost completely upon us. It is a month in which can increase the risk of precipitation.

April

During April many pilgrims are encouraged to make the journey by taking advantage of Easter. For almost all stretches of the Camino Frances, it is possible to complete the route during Holy Week.

May

During the month of May, the risk of precipitation and instability increases a little. However, the colour of the whole area between Sahagún and León makes it worthwhile as you fall in love with this route.

June

June is especially good for those who can start their holidays earlier. The good news is that we will benefit from mild weather with no sultry temperatures as yet and only a small influx of pilgrims.

July

During the month of July, the festivities of Santiago de Compostela take place from the 15th to the 31st of July , specifically. For this reason, many pilgrims who complete the Camino de Santiago from Sahagún to León are finally encouraged to continue to Santiago.

Another option is to do it from Pamplona and to have completed it before the emblematic San Fermín festival.

Fiestas de San Fermin en Pamplona

August

The month of August, in the middle of summer, is preferred by most pilgrims. It is because it is when they have more free time to make the Camino. With Santiago Ways, the problem of overcrowding does not exist: we take care of you.

September

One of the strengths of September is that it brings the autumn with it. In this environment, everything begins to colour itself in greens, browns and yellows. There is an increased risk of precipitation and instability , but it can be combated with good planning.

October

Like the month before, the beauty of autumn in the entire region of León is a very powerful incentive to make the Camino. This makes it one of the favourite months for the “romantics”, whether they make the walk on foot or complete the route by bike.

November

In November the temperatures go down but so does the number of pilgrims.

December

It is a month that more and more pilgrims choose, and want to live the experience of a Christmas away from home and enjoy an unbeatable environment during this time of year.

Guide to the places that you cannot miss on the Camino de Santiago Frances from Sahagún

We want to talk to you about the places of greatest interest along this route. These places have to do with not only the heritage of the places that we are going through. It also has to do with the places to eat and of course where to rest. With Santiago Ways, you’ll be in the best hands.

Places of interest

Iglesia de San Tirso

The town from which we started, Sahagún, is a magnificent example of the patrimonial richness of the route. The Church of San Tirso or the Arch of San Benito are a good example of this and two monuments that you should not miss.

Where to sleep – The best hotels

From Santiago Ways, we take care that the places where you rest are the best. We put a lot of care into your choice because we know how important your rest is. So, now we’ll talk about what they are.

Where to eat – The best restaurants

Mesón Covadonga: In Sahagún is located this inn that offers us some of the best specialities of local cuisine with products of its exquisite land. It has an affordable price and good service for the pilgrim.

Restaurante La Curiosa: In Mansilla de las Mulas, we cannot miss a visit to this magnificent restaurant that mixes the best of traditional and modern dishes and in its decoration.

Casa Mando: It is located in the city of León and offers a very cosy and traditional atmosphere with a quite varied menu and at a good price. It is the perfect place to celebrate our arrival in this magnificent city.

Origin of the Camino de Santiago from Sahagún

The origin of the Camino de Santiago from Sahagún is shared with the Camino Frances de Santiago. As we have said, it is the fifth section and has evolved alongside it. It was during the Middle Ages when people began to travel to make their pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

This route was not only valuable for religious purposes, but it was also used as a point of commerce for the whole area of the North Sub plateau. Many of the towns and villages have survived along the route and now live in symbiosis with it.

It was as a result of the progressive reconquest of the territory that little by little the Camino Frances was gaining importance ahead of the so-called Camino Primitivo or against the Camino del Norte, a much more difficult route to complete.

Today, the Camino Frances de Santiago, in general, and the way from Sahagún to León, has an excellent set-up in terms of infrastructure that makes it a very important alternative for those who want to experience this adventure.

We took the French Way, Leaving from Saint Jean Pied de Port. Santiago Ways booked our rooms the entire trip and make sure our luggage was transported. The rooms were a delight the walk was wonderful. Santiago Ways made sure to have support for us on the trip as well as needed. I would highly recommend this company. The entire group was a delight to work with and Cristiana on it especially was helpful.If we should decide to do another way, we would definitely use this company.

This was our first time in Spain and first time walking on a daily basis. Santiago Ways answered our many questions and concerns over many emails. We started our walk September 1st 2019 in Sarria and took 10 days to walk to Santiago de Compostela. Santiago Ways booked our lodging in 10 different places along with luggage transfers. We asked that all breakfasts,dinner and picnic lunch be included. Our accommodations varied from Albergues. Inns, Boutique hotel, to Bed and Breakfast. We truly enjoyed our picnic lunch as we could stop anywhere and enjoy the view. The accommodations - private room and private bathroom as we requested were not disappointing. We would recommend Santiago Way to anyone that needs some assistance in walking The Way.

I changed my itinerary about 10 times before finalizing my vacation, 2 weeks prior to my trip date. Santiago Ways (Sara Mateo) was so polite and understanding throughout the entire process. My wife and I loved our great 2 week walk on the Camino. Every reservation, baggage transfer, excursion and transportation worked out exactly as planned. Thank you Sara for our memorable vacation.

We recently walked part of the Camino de Santiago Trail. Our trip was arranged by Santiago Ways. We were part of a larger group we had a tour guide and our luggage was transferred each day. Our trip was an immense success, everything went very smoothly and that in part was down to Veronica who arranged the trip. She was very helpful throughout the whole planning procedure even arranging for a private transfer from the airport to Sarria, our start point. I would recommend Santiago Ways and Veronica and would definitely use them again.

After comparing several agencies, our group of 7 decided to go with Santiago Ways for our first Camino experience as they offered an all round better price for our customised package that included insurance, meals, accommodation, luggage transfers and any required transportation to accommodation. The booking process was straightforward, they responded quickly to various enquiries and changes that we requested and they provided guidance on preparation and the Camino route which we referred to throughout our trip.We had a couple of issues including one of our group injuring her ankle but Santiago Ways were available 24 x 7 and they resolved everything efficiently including all communications required with local accommodation providers, taxis etc. which was very reassuring. Pilgrims we met who organised their accommodation en route had to deal with lack of accommodation in some locations and then they had to organise transport to and from the nearest hostels. We didn’t have any stress like this at all which left us free to enjoy the stunning scenery and great camaraderie on this wonderful trip. We will use Santiago Ways again and we can highly recommend them.

I booked my Camino de Santiago for Sept 2019 through Santiago Ways and the company made the experience absolutely wonderful. Vanessa Veiga was a pleasure to deal with, very professional and informative and made it very easy to arrange the entire trip. The accommodations and board booked through Santiago ways were amazing, we were very pleased with the diversity (B&B, hotel, hostel) of the accommodations along with the service and cleanliness of the accommodations. The luggage transfer worked flawlessly. I would rate Santiago Ways 10 out of 10 and recommend them to anyone looking to book their Camino.

I was so pleased with the trip Santiago Ways set up for me to Walk The Camino Francés. My first experience was when I requested a quote in October 2018 for a August 2019 walk. Ylenia went above and beyond to answer all our questions and to provide numerous options for me before I made my final decision on the trip. She was patient and thorough as I gathered information. Her follow up was amazing and her attention to detail was very assuring! Once I booked the trip she continued sending updates until we departed for Spain. Once we arrived in Spain Ylenia and the Operations team stayed in touch via email to answer any questions. The hotel accommodations for 39 days were all wonderful and the baggage transfer was perfect. Every day our bags were at the hotel by the time we arrived. One day my friend left her hat in the hotel room and Santiago Ways Operation team sent an email saying the hat would be waiting at our next hotel. That’s going “above and beyond”. I highly recommend using Santiago Ways for your Camino!!!!! We walked with numerous people who had used other companies and they all thought Santiago Ways had the best hotels. I’ve already referred a friend to them and definitely will use them for my next Camino. Thank you Santiago Ways!!!!!!!!

Celebrating 60th birthday, we walked 100 kilos for 10 days. No pain and no blisters. Santiago ways transported our luggage on time every day even we changed one of the hotel to Paradores.

We booked our "Camino" trip via this agency. Our agent was Vanessa and we are ecstatic with the service! The booking went very smoothly. All our questions were answered and all our wished addressed in a very quick manner. Actually, the agency had to ping us a few times via email and WhatsApp, as we were the ones too slow to answer them. They even made arrangements for us to take our dog on the trip and book the appropriate hotels. The luggage transfer was wonderful. We had a pickup from Santiago to our starting point on "Camino" that also worked perfectly. We can highly recommend the services of this agency. I have to admit that I have not compared prices and if there is something cheaper on the market, but the service we received here was impeccable. We had a wonderful trip and are planing to come back next year and walk another "Camino" again. Buen Camino everyone!

Walking the Camino was the best experience of my life! Partially because I had such a great support crew of Santiago Ways! I worked with Vanessa Veiga who organized my trip to suit my needs. When some details needed to be changed, she kindly worked with me to make it happen. My accommodations were all very different- from Casa Rurals to hostels to Pensions, but they were all excellent. The luggage transfer worked perfectly, too. I highly recommend this company to anyone planning to walk the Camino!

I used Santiago Ways on my first Camino in March this year. The trail that I did was from Vigo to Santiago de Compostela. The experience was truly fantastic ….. mainly because of Santiago Ways.My contact person at Santiago Ways was Vanessa Veiga. Right from the onset Vanessa was extremely helpful , sensitive and very attentive to all my requests. She responded swiftly to all my mails. She selected the right hotels which were excellent and the luggage always arrived on time.I am planning my second Camino next April and I would continue to use Santiago Ways and in particular Vanessa. Thanks a million Vanessa and continue the good work to all the pilgrims who want to experience a true Camino.Winston FernandezKuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Santiago Ways made it possible for me to do the pilgrimage. At 69 I did not like the idea of staying in a hostal, I like a bit of privacy and comfort! And I could not have done the walking while carrying my luggage. Adriana at Santiago Ways helped me work out my route and booked hotels and luggage transfers. Also, having them there in case I had any problems, was very reassuring. Adriana was only a phone call away. I recommend using Santiago Ways for anyone having doubts about doing the pilgrimage - they make it so much easier!

Vanessa was awesome and we loved Santiago Ways! We had a group of 8 college friends that were all around 50-years old. The deciding factor in choosing Santiago Ways was the group discount offered for groups of 6 or more. All other companies threshold for a discount was 10 people. Vanessa and the staff were awesome to work with throughout the process. We did the five day hike from Sarria to Santiago. We requested superior accommodations in places that were on the trail. The accommodations were top notch and 4 of the 5 places were directly on the trail. The exception was our night in Lavacolla in which we were .4 miles off the trail. It was our choice to stay in that location in order to have a shorter walk to Santiago on our final day so we could make the noon mass. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean each place was and they all had great bar and restaurant choices in close proximity - with the exception of Lavacolla so we recommend eating on-site - it was very good.

We had an excellent experience on the Camino with Santiago Ways. We had 14 women and everything was wonderful. We enjoyed the hotels, loved the daily luggage transport and the food was terrific. Santiago Ways communicated throughout our trip. We felt well-supported when we needed to make changes. Thank you!!

My family and I used Santiago Ways to organize our recent pilgrimage from Lisbon to Porto. They did an excellent job booking us (as much as possible) into wonderful, small, family-run hotels and coping with the many changes dictated by "group" travel. In addition, one of us was traveling by bicycle whilst the rest were walking, necessitating even more planning which Santiago Ways did with patience and grace. We recommend using Santiago Ways for Camino support and planning!!! Jan Schubert

My family and I (6 of us) just finished walking the Lisbon to Porto section of the Camino Portuguese. It was a wonderful experience for us. The hotels we were booked into were well chosen and the food was great. We also found the path to be well marked making way finding fairly easy. A great relief as we had heard it was not well marked. Our luggage was efficiently transferred each day and everything ran very smoothly. Thank you Santiago Ways! We would definitely recommend your services to our friends. Jill

Santiago Ways made my memorable hike trouble-free. I had excellent hotels, tasty breakfasts, dependable baggage forwarding, informative advance information, and a dependable drive to deliver me to Sarria. I really appreciate their attention to detail!

We booked our El Camino with Santiago Ways and we were very lucky to have Silvia as our agent. She did a fantastic job organizing our trip, always promptly responding to our inquiries, impeccable English, all accommodations that she arranged for us were great, and our luggage was always delivered to the next location timely, before our arrivals to sites. I would definitely recommend Santiago Ways and ask for Silvia to be your representative.

This trip changed my life in ways I could not describe! I knew the hiking was going to be a challenge, but Santiago Ways made it so easy to plan and execute. They are truly the best and I am already planning my next trip with Santiago Ways and would not think of going anywhere else. Silvia Rivera was particularly helpful in the planning, as she answered all my questions patiently, and help me through the process. Great job, Guys, and I will see you next year!

Have just finished El Camino de Santiago from Sarria with the help of Santiago Ways. They have been extremely accesible from day one. The transfer of the luggage throught the five days was impecable, always finding the luggage in the room on every stage of the way. The food and lodging was very acceptable. If I were to do it again I would not hesitate to contact them once more for their assistance! "Buen camino".

Simply put - an incredible experience! This agency looks after every last detail. I walked the last 100 km of the Camino with their help and I definitely want to go back soon and do a longer part of the route. When that happens (which I hope is soon) I'll definitely be using Santiago Ways again! Thanks for everything.
