Walking from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela

Sarria to Santiago

The question was:

Me and my mother are going to walk Sarria -Santiago, we have 10 days and three are travelingdays.

I saw that the best option probably is to take the bus from Santiago to Sarria and walk the way back. But we feel that it would be like opening the biggest christmas present before christmas :roll:

Got a tips from the pilgrimage office in norway that we can take buss number 200 from the airport and will get to Avenue de America, where do we fint the bus to Sarria? Do we need to book a room? We are gonna walk from 10-20 April!

What is your favorite private accommodation between Sarria and Santiago?

Camino de Santiago

The question was:

Since I got such good information from my request for information about places to stay in Melide, I thought I’d post a more general question.

If you have stayed in private accommodations between Sarria and Santiago and have some special favorites, post them here. I am helping a friend set up her Camino, but since I don’t usually stay in private places, I’m not able to give her good advice. There are some older threads on this topic, but given the rate of change and construction, I thought I’d ask for more recent experiences and recommendations.

Can we travel to Sarria the same day we arrive in Santiago de Compostela?

The question was:

Just looking for some advice on best course of action for starting our walk. We arrive in Santiago via Madrid at 21.40 on a Saturday night with a view to starting or walk in Sarria – is it best to go straight to Sarria or stay in Santiago for one night and bus it the next day, If we do bus it and begin walk immediately from Sarria how is it possible to transfer luggage to our next stop if we have not spent the night in Sarria? Also travelling in late Aug and was thinking of booking first and last nights accommodation and doing the rest as we go – is this risky at this time of the year.
