Time of past OR future Camino
July 2023
Hello all, first time doing this. We are starting our walk from Sarria. We need to get from Santiago to Sarria in July. I can only see a daily bus leaving Santiago at 11.00am. Can anyone advise on this or know other options? Thanks
 
3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
I think there is also a daily train service, leaving around 6 pm. You might want to check the RENFE site for details.
 
I am traveling direct from Madrid to Sarria by train. There are three daily trains.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
Monbus only has one bus a day from Santiago to Sarria I believe. Otherwise you bus to Lugo and then catch a bus from there to Sarria. There will be more daily options for this. The current schedule and the July schedule will be similar.

I often suggest walking the last part of the Camino Primitivo from Lugo for folks wanting to do 100 km to Santiago. The Primitivo joins the CF at Melida but there are alternative ways to Santiago. I say suggest instead of recommend because I've not done this walk myself. Lugo has a two kilometer walkable on top Roman wall encircling the old city.

After Santiago you may enjoy walking to the ocean at Finisterre, another 90 km, usually done in three days and more often in four than two. Decent bus service back to Santiago.

We did this as well last September. The only bus was at 11 am. We purchased bus tickets ahead of time. We got a taxi from our hotel in Santiago to the Santiago bus station. It was not expensive.
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
I caught one (of the many) busses from Santiago to Sarria via Lugo and had enought time to explore the beautiful Lugo city walls and grab a bit of lunch in Lugo before catching my connection to Sarria. I arrived in Sarria around 2:30pm and then walked from there to Portomarin and the trail wasn't the least bit busy at that time of afternoon.

We're going Santiago to Sarria this September. Where did you get your bus tickets, how much and how far in advance did you purchase? Thanks.
