Traveling in Spain


New Member
I would like info about flights, bus or train from Santiago de Compostela to Barcelona. What would be the best and cheapest way to travel? Any recommedations of sites that are in English? Is booking ahead essential in July?
Thanks Dorthe
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

Hi Dorthe -

Two sites to check out for flights are:


They are both in English and range from base price SDC to Barcelona 28 to 40€ one way. These are BASE prices and check through them to see how much all the add-ons are.

Check out train prices at


For bus timetables and prices go to


Best of luck with your planning.

Thanks a lot for info. I am going to check these sites out and hopefully can plan the final stages of our journey. It's getting exciting now.
Cheers Dorthe
Hi Dorthe,

as an addition on previous posts: I have travelled with Ryanair from Santiago to Barcelona last year, and booked the flight only 5 days before departure (from an Internet pc on the Camino).

If travelling times have not changed, there is a bus from Santiago (earlyest one, maybe 7.30 I recall) that takes you to the airport (outside of Santiago), which will make more then on time for the 9.00 flight to Barcelona... (Which took me back further then I started from a month ago in only 2 hours, which was a most bizar feeling... :mrgreen: )

Buen Camino!
