You will find yourself immersed in the history, culture, and traditions of the Camino and the Galicia region of Spain. As you travel towards the Cathedral of St James you’ll experience the camaraderie of the Way, enjoy wonderful local cuisine and wine, discover some sacred places and share the common purpose of your fellow travellers all heading to Compostela.

You will walk exactly the same trail as all the other pilgrims and travellers, sharing the way and rubbing shoulders with people from all over the world. But you’ll be using our luxury vehicle and driver to shuttle you between hotel and trail as required. This allows you to decide each day how much walking you wish to do, perhaps have an early finish or simply take a day off to relax. Some hotels have spa facilities and all can arrange for therapists to attend.

On arrival in Santiago, you have a private tour of the medieval Casco Antiguo — the heart of the old city — where you visit the cathedral and collect your Compostela certificate. There will be a special celebratory dinner on the final evening. For any further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch

Highlights Along this Luxury Camino de Santiago

Santiago Old Town
A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985, Galicia’s capital city Santiago de Compostela is the world-known destination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. Around the Cathedral of Saint James of Compostela, a masterpiece of Romanesque art, the city boasts a picturesque old town worthy of one of Christianity’s greatest holy cities.

Galicia’s waters produce some of the best seafood and fish in the world. Its pastures support beef and dairy herds, so you will find delicious local cuts of meat and cheeses.

When it comes to filling your glass, Galicia produces wonderful reds and whites, fantastically refreshing beers and its signature liquor – Oruzo.

Food & Drink

Every town in the Camino has a variety of lively plazas with bars and restaurants, so there will be plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy the delicious Spanish gastronomy and the variety of world-famous Spanish wines.

This is an area that still preserves a traditional way of life. Galicia is the green corner of Spain and its lush meadows support many family-run dairy and beef farms. Galician cooking is simple and hearty, using mainly fresh local produce.

Those with a sweet tooth will love Tarta de Santiago, a type of almond cake dusted with sugar outlining the shape of the cross of Santiago. A gastronomic point – in Melide look out for the local speciality “Pulpo Gallego” – octopus – sprinkled with paprika and served with potatoes.

The wines, cheeses and seafood are all renowned Galician specialities. Unlike the red wine-producing rest of Spain, Galicia’s climate is better suited to whites. Albariño is a straw-coloured wine with a distinct peach flavour that’s now highly respected outside Spain and the perfect companion to fish and seafood.
