    The Challenge:

    Camino 100 Autumn - 100 miles in 5 days 

    This adventure is like no other and one you will never forget. Throughout the challenge we will be staying in Hotels, all with en-suite bathrooms and your bags will be transported to your next Hotel each day. 

    Where will your journey take you...

    Day 1: Sunday 29 September 

    Your Camino adventure begins... 

    We recommend organising your flight to Santiago de Compostela Airport. The cost of the flights are not included in the cost of the Tour, however the pre-arranged transfer, at a set time from this Airport to our start location, is included. Meeting time will be confirmed by the Events Team.

    From Santiago de Compostela Airport, our private transfer will take us to the starting point of our Camino 100 challenge, Mount O'Cebreiro. This is a small, beautiful, traditional mountain village and is at the highest point of our Challenge route.

    After settling into your hotel, you will have some time to explore... in the evening the Team will share a welcome meal together whilst hearing about our adventure ahead.

    Included: Dinner

    Day 2: Monday 30 September -  O'Cebreiro to Samos - 18.5 miles / 31.4km

    We start our 100 miles and begin walking from the top of Mount O'Cebreiro. Most people begin their journey from Sarria, so this part of the route is enjoyed for being less travelled and quieter. From here we will descend towards the beautiful village of Samos.

    Every day the landscape is stunning, but today you are very high so the view is truly exceptional. Our Hotel is situated at the bottom of the valley, where you will receive the first of many very big welcomes. 

    Included: Breakfast & Dinner 

    Day 3: Tuesday 1 October - Samos to Portomarin - 24 miles / 36.7km

    Today is a longer walk, firstly along the river and then into the forest, through the 'town' of Sarria. It is from Sarria where many pilgrims start their Camino trail completing the required minimum distance of 60 miles in order to receive the Compostela certificate. From here we move to the village of Portomarin. It is a beautiful little town and has a large reservoir, an old fortified church and the old main square where everybody meets at the end of the day and sit, have drinks and share food, telling tales from the day. 

    Included: Breakfast & Dinner 

    Day 4: Wednesday 2 October - Portomarin to Palas de Rei - 15.5 miles / 25km

    A shorter distance today and a chance for your legs to take it easy.... starting with a beautiful walk that follows a path through forests. 

    Included: Breakfast & Dinner 

    Day 5: Thursday 3 October - Palas de Rei - Salceda - 26 miles / 41km

    By now you have completed more than half of your challenge! 

    Today you will be crossing several valleys and passing by the town of Melide, one of the most important towns on our way... we will finish in a quiet and beautiful town known as Salceda, where we will stop and relax for the evening.

    Included: Breakfast & Dinner 

    Day 6: Friday 4 October - Salceda to Santiago - 16 miles / 28.8km

    Our last glorious day and as you walk through the quiet country roads and tiny villages, stretching towards Santiago, you will reach the Monte do Gozo from where you will get your first glimpse of the city of Santiago in the distance. 

    As you enjoy the entrance into the city, you will finally reach the old city of Santiago de Compostela in time to experience the Pilgrim Mass and the famous swinging of the Botafumerio which is a highlight for all pilgrims.

    We will be staying in a Hotel situated in the central part of the city. Tonight we will have a celebration meal together!

    Included: Breakfast & Dinner 

    Day 7: Saturday 5 October- Santiago de Compostela

    A free day for you to experience and explore this amazing city; enjoy all it has to offer from the culture and historic centre, boutique shops, delicious foods and wonderful restaurants. 

    Included: Breakfast & Dinner

    Day 8: Sunday 6 October  - Home Time 

     The pre-arranged private transfer, at one set time, will take us to Santiago de Compostela Airport and from which you will return to 'home'.
