TRIP DESCRIPTION

This is a gentler pace than our regular Last 100KM Tour as we have 7 days to walk! We cover the same Last 100KMs from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela, but we walk an average of 15KM a day rather than over 20KM a day. Sometimes you want to take it easy and walk fewer distances each day!

As always, we have our support vehicle which means you can break up the walking days whenever you like. To make getting to the start a bit easier, we will pick you up in Madrid. That first evening in Madrid you have a short walking tour and dinner in the heart of the city. Then we have a private bus transfer to the start of the Camino.

We spend two or three nights in the same accommodation to make the burden of packing bags a little less.

Highlights:                                                                                                                         

  • Discovering Northern Spain by walking through its small towns and experiencing first-hand the culture, food and traditions.
  • Great camaraderie with other pilgrims as you walk the most popular section of the Camino de Santiago.
  • The rolling, bucolic scenery of Galicia and a chance to see myriad churches and chapels dedicated to St. James.
  • The chance to try great Galician food such as pulpo (octopus with paprika), empanada (hearty savoury pastry), tetilla (cow’s milk cheese in the shape of a woman´s breast), albariño (Galician white wine) and caldo gallego (ham broth with chard and potatoes).
  • Arriving at the Plaza de Obradoiroto see the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, along with the familiar faces of all the other pilgrims who have, like you, walked to get there!

WHY 115 KM?

Walking the Last 100km of the Camino de Santiago means that you can request your Compostela, or certificate of completion of the pilgrimage. Sarria happens to be just to the East and makes for a convenient starting point. Transportation there is easy and we like the restaurants.

THE COMPOSTELA

At the end of the Last 100 Kilometers all walkers are presented with a Compostela certificate issued by the Archdiocese of Santiago de Compostela and the Pilgrim’s Office.  This is true about all of the walks that complete at least the last 100kms of any Camino de Santiago.

ACCOMMODATION

All accommodation is carefully chosen for its proximity to the Camino, for its charm and for the quality of service provided. We try to use small rural farmhouses or manor houses wherever possible. These are similar to bed and breakfasts and are usually traditional houses typical of the region, full of character and run by local people.

On some nights we use hotels so you will experience a mix, always of good quality!

EXTRA DAYS BEFORE OR AFTER

If you are traveling at a busy time of year it´s best to reserve. For hotels in Santiago de Compostela it´s certainly better to reserve in advance. We can help if you need advice or assistance booking a room – just let us know.

FOOD

The Laid-back Last 100 Kilometers is walked exclusively in Galicia, Spain’s green oasis in the North. It is famous for the wines produced there (both red and white), its seafood (pretty much everything the Atlantic has to offer), and its cheese (curiously shaped in the form of a breast). You can count on enjoying all of these things. We take care of nearly every meal and for the rest we provide recommendations for our favorite local restaurants.

INCLUDED IN THE LAID-BACK LAST 100 KILOMETERS:

  • All Breakfasts
  • 5 Lunches with wine
  • 7 Dinners with wine & water
  • Water & snacks throughout the day

LUGGAGE

From the starting point in Madrid to the ending point in Santiago de Compostela, we take care of all luggage handling and transportation.

For the luggage, this means leaving your bags with your guide in the morning. We handle the details of getting them into the next hotel room.

We have our support vehicle which means being able to take a rest by shuttling ahead to the lunch spot, or if the need arises to get you straight to your room. We also find it handy to keep a small bag in the van with stuff you might need throughout the day whether this be a change of jacket or picking up your walking sticks.

OUR GUIDES

Everyone at Andaspain was a pilgrim before they became a guide.  In fact most of us spent a few years returning to the Camino before setting out to help others do the same.  For all of us the Camino de Santiago was a life changing experience. We consider the act of walking purposefully to be one of our most cherished activities. Laid-Back Last 100 Kilometers, and every other fully guided walking tour we offer, is always led by a qualified guide/s.

OUR BOOKING PROCESS

STEP 1

Complete the form to schedule a phone call. We’re kind of sticklers about this step and promise to make it the best phone call you ever had.

STEP 2

After we’ve gotten to know each other, we will email you a link to our top-secret and very secure booking page. That, of course, is why we are asking for your email address in step 1. By the end of this step, you will have confirmed your place on your chosen trip, and the places of anybody that will be joining you. This is done by means of a deposit of 300€ or 600€ per person (depending on trip length).

STEP 3

Once your booking is confirmed you will immediately be presented with step 3, which can be completed at any time but at least 1 month prior to the departure date. You will get this link in your booking confirmation in case you are a procrastinator. In step 3 we collect a bit more personal information to make sure that everything on the trip goes smoothly. This includes any medical allergies, old injuries that might give you grief, and lastly your passport number for the sake of expediting our hotel check-ins.
