    Meseta or Leon/Sarria - which one first?

    I've completed 400km of the Camino Frances over the past 15 months and need to walk the stretches from Burgos to Sarria (I walked from Sarria to Santiago in June 2019) to complete my Camino.

    Walking/Biking Sarria to Santiago on trails

    Hello. I am planning on walking with 5-7 girlfriends from Sarria to Santiago for my 55th birthday . . . well 60th to be truthful.

    I’m on my walk and started May 8, I’m in Burgos now. If my 15 year old granddaughter wanted to join me from the USA and walk from Sarria (or any where on Camino Frances) what would be a good flight over and what would be the best way to retrieve her from an airport. I would have to leave my walk...

    Sarria to Santiago 18 to 23 April 2019

    Hi, is anyone else doing this stage on these dates? I walked the entire CF in 2012, but now I only have a week off from work, and I think that April, and Easter, would be a great time for Galicia!

    Hi everyone, I am hoping to do the final stretch of the walk beginning February 28, finishing no later than the 5th of March. As a solo female walker and it being still technically winter, is this a good time to go, or would it be better to wait until April? I will be traveling and in Madrid...

    How do I get to Sarria?

    My first time on the Camino, I wanted to start small. I'm walking from Sarria to Santiago, then on to Finisterre. I find the best schedule for me is to fly into Madrid at the start, flying out of Santiago de Compostela at the end. My questions to the group are: How do I get from Madrid to...
