Santiago Cycling Tour

Following the route of ancient pilgrims we cycle sections of the legendary trail to Santiago de Compostela - the resting place of Saint James. The trip follows the last 200 kilometres of the scenic route through northern Spain, starting on the high plains of the Castilian meseta. We ascend into the fertile region of the Bierzo and traverse the rolling hills of Galicia to the delightful city of Santiago.

Tour Highlights

  • The legendary Camino de Santiago route - Beautiful scenery and cultural highlights as we cherry pick the best bits of the route
  • Santiago De Compostela - Lively historic town and 'holy shrine' of the pilgrims
  • Leon - Imposing Gothic Cathedral with stunning stained glass windows
  • Astorga - Magnificent Bishop's Palace designed by Antoni Gaudi
  • Cruz de Ferro - The famous iron cross at the highest point of the Camino
  • O Cebreiro - Charming mountain village with cobbled streets, round stone thatched houses and picturesque valley views
