to Santiago de Compostela
This is one of the most ambitious tours we have
ever put together, clocking up more than 1000km as we loosely follow the Way of
St James from the Basque Country to Santiago de Compostela and finally the
Atlantic at Cape Finisterre.
We have 2 nights up Monte Igueldo,
overlooking the stunning bay of San Sebastián.
We’ll move on, visiting Guernica en route, to
spend 2 nights in Bilbao, in a central location by the Gardens of Albia, an easy

with 2 nights in its Parador.

the mountain village of Peñalba
de Santiago, and the town of Ponferrada.
Finally, we head over the Sierra which takes us into Galicia, with its fresh
Though we’ll take a day to explore the dramatic west coast, including Muros
and Cape Finisterre, our final destination has to be Santiago de Compostela,
home of St James, and conclusion of The Camino.
