Overview

Highlights

  • Experience one of the world’s most epic pilgrimages as you travel across northern Spain via the famed Camino Francès route
  • Tour the town of Pamplona, famous for the running of the bulls; the medieval city of Burgos, home of the 11th-century hero El Cid; and the ancient capital of León
  • Enjoy guided tours of historic Santiago de Compostela, and marvel at the fascinating Romanesque and Gothic architecture of Astorga
  • Get the most out of your trip with full coach support—there is always the option to shorten or skip walks!—and local expert guides who bring the magic to life

Short Description

For over a thousand years, the faithful have made the journey across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. The historic town and Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—houses the remains of the Apostle James, said to have brought Christianity to Spain. During the Middle Ages, traveling over the mighty Pyrenees from all over Europe to see such a powerful relic became more than just a spiritual journey; for many, it was the quest of a lifetime.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Itinerary

Day 1: Meet in Bilbao (Spain) – Transfer to Saint Jean-Pied de Port (France)

Meals: Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Hotel Les Pyrenees

We recommend that you arrive in Bilbao prior to Day 1 to explore the city and recover from jet lag. Bilbao is the cultural capital and main city of Basque Country in Northern Spain, and is home to the famous Guggenheim Museum, noted for its permanent collections of avant-garde art displaying the works of 20th-century artists. Those arriving on Day 1 will be picked up from the airport in time to rendezvous with your guide and the rest of the group at 11am at The Gran Hotel Domine Bilbao.

After introductions and a brief orientation, we’ll transfer to San Sebastian, considered to be the most beautiful city along the Bay of Biscay. We'll enjoy a a short visit and lunch before continuing on to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, a small market town on the French side of the Basque Pyrenees. After checking into our hotel, we'll take a brief walking tour and end the day with a festive welcome dinner.

(Driving time: 2½ hours)

Day 2: Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (France) – Roncesvalles (Spain)

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Hotel Roncesvalles

We'll begin the day with a transfer from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Biakorri, where a statue of the Virgin Mary watches over travelers from atop a rocky ridge. From here, we'll begin the first stage of El Camino, crossing from France into Spain and taking the historical Pass of Roncesvalles, where the hero of the Charlemagne Army, Roland, battled against the Basques. We’ll enjoy a good hike in the mid-altitude meadows of the Pyrenees, with a very gradual climb to the cols of Bentarte and Leopeder, eventually descending through beech tree forests to Roncesvalles. In the afternoon, we'll have a guided tour of Roncesvalles’ historic sites.

(Hiking time: 6 hours, 9.3 miles, 1,656' gradual ascent, 2,114’ descent; Driving time: 30 minutes)

Day 3: Roncesvalles – Pamplona

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Hotel Tres Reyes

After breakfast, we’ll hike through meadows and forests, passing small villages along the way. Our destination is the charming old town of Zubiri in the Valley of Esteribar. We’ll cross the Valley of Erro through oak and beech tree forests, the typical scenery of the southern slopes of the Pyrenees in the Navarra Basque Country. Once we’ve reached Zubiri, we’ll board our bus and transfer to the city of Pamplona, where we’ll spend the night. Founded by the Roman General Pompeius, Pamplona is the first big city that the Pilgrims discovered when they arrived in Spain. We’ll take a leisurely walk through the Old City, including the streets where the famous "running of the bulls" takes place, before sitting down for dinner.

(Hiking time: 6 hours, 14 miles, 1,428' ascent, 2,853’ descent; Driving time: 35 minutes)

Day 4: Ages Atapuerco – Burgos

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: NH Collection Palacio de Burgos

Today, we'll transfer from Pamplona to Ages and begin one of the main stages of El Camino: the high plains of central Spain, known as the Meseta. After a short ascent of about 500 feet to Matagrande, our journey follows a very flat route, passing through the villages of Atapuerca, Villafria, and Castañares. In the afternoon, we’ll arrive at the city of Burgos, situated on the Rio Arlanzon. Once the capital of the Castile and Léon realms, this 9th-century city was the home town of El Cid, whose statue guards the Puente de San Pablo. We’ll continue along a riverside walkway to the Puente El Cid and the Gothic-style Burgos Cathedral, near which we'll spend the night. After checking in to the hotel, we'll have a guided tour of the cathedral and the old town of Burgos before dinner.

(Hiking time: 6 hours, 12½ miles, 1,000' ascent, 1,500’ descent; Driving time: 2 hours)

Day 5: Boadilla del Camino – Carrion de los Condes

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Hotel Monasterio San Zoilo

Today, we’ll enjoy another full day on the high plains of Central Spain, as we cross through the Tierra de Campos (or Campos Goticos). It is here that the Spanish Visigoths settled after defeating the Muslims who entered Spain. This land is filled with the history of La Reconquista, a period lasting nearly 800 years in the Middle Ages, during which several Christian kingdoms succeeded in retaking the Muslim-controlled areas of the Iberian Peninsula. It is today known as Castilla.

We'll pass green and golden grasslands and fields of sunflowers as we walk through this sparse farm country to the medieval town of Carrion de los Condes. A local guide will give us a tour of the old town, which contains one of the most important churches in the area, La Iglesia de Santa Maria del Camino. We'll then settle into our hotel, impressively located within a restored monastery from the 11th and 16th centuries known for its beautiful cloister, peaceful gardens, and a church that contains the relics of San Zoilo.

(Hiking time: 7 hours, 16½ miles, 891' ascent, 865’ descent; Driving time: 1 hour)

Day 6: El Burgo Ranero – Mansilla de las Mulas (León)

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Parador Hostal San Marcos de León

Today, we’ll hike through the small town of El Burgo Ranero and through vast fields of crops and grasslands on very flat terrain. By lunchtime, we'll reach the medieval market city of Mansilla de las Mulas, a crossroads in this area of El Camino. After lunch, we'll take a short transfer to the Capital of Christian Spain: the city of León, also known as El Reino de León. We'll take a historical tour of the city and the early Gothic-style Cathedral of León, one of the most famous cathedrals in Spain. We'll finish the day at Hotel Parador, a historical monument from the 16th century that's worth spending an hour exploring.

(Hiking time: 6 hours, 12 miles, 464' ascent, 1,090’ descent'; Driving time: 45 minutes)

Day 7: Hospital de Órbigo – Astorga

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Parador de Villafranca del Bierzo

We'll begin today's hike in Hospital de Órbigo, with its picturesque old Roman Órbigo Bridge, and continue along country roads through vineyards and rolling hills for 11 miles. Along the way, we’ll pass through the small villages of Valle de Santibañez and Valdeiglesias, until we eventually reach a special point in our trip—El Crucero de Santo Toribio, the religious cross that has marked this trail for centuries. We'll continue on until we reach the small city of Astorga, founded in 14BC as the Roman city of Asturica Augusta. Astorga is known for its fascinating architecture, from the Romanesque style to the Gothic, and is home to the Episcopal Palace of Astorga, built by the famous Catalonian architect, Antoni Gaudí. We'll then transfer to Villafranca del Bierzo, where we'll spend the night.

(Hiking time: 6 hours, 11 miles, 800' ascent, 834’ descent; Driving time: 1½ hours total in two 45-minute shifts)

Day 8: Villafranca – Las Herrerias – O Cebreiro – Lugo

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Hotel Méndez Núñez

Today, we'll leave behind the Leon region and the High Plains of El Camino, as we enter the northwestern region of Galicia, with its Celtic history and hilly landscapes. We’ll begin our hike in Las Herrerias, crossing La Faba and Laguna de Castilla before we reach our first significant ascent in many days. We’ll climb over 2,000 feet in our last five miles to reach the old Celtic village of O Cebrerio by way of the Piedrfita Pass, where custom has it the pilgrim must throw one stone in the Cruceiro for good luck. We'll spend the night in the Old Roman city of Lugo, where we'll visit the Lugo Cathedral and walk along the Roman Wall.

(Hiking time: 4 hours, 6 miles, 2,416' ascent, 394’ descent; Driving time: 45 minutes)

Day 9: Pedrouzo – Santiago de Compostela

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Parador de Santiago de Compostela (Hostal dos Reis Católicos)

After breakfast, we’ll have a 45-minute transfer to the town of Pedrouzo, where we’ll start the last stage of our trek along El Camino de Santiago. Today, we’ll reach the official destination of our journey: Santiago de Compostela and the cathedral that is the reputed burial place of St. James. The cathedral sits on La Plaza del Obradoiro, as does our hotel, a five-star parador located within a spectacular 16th-century building.

(Hiking time: 6 hours, 14 miles, 1,534' ascent, 1,600’ descent; Driving time: 45 minutes)

Day 10: Day Trip to Finisterre – Guided Historical Tour of Santiago de Compostela

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Parador de Santiago de Compostela (Hostal dos Reis Católicos)

Today, we’ll enjoy a guided excursion to the coastal village of Finisterre ("the end of the Earth"), 55 miles from Santiago de Compostela. It is a tradition for pilgrims to end their journey by burning their clothes or boots here at the westernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula. In the afternoon, we'll return to Santiago for a guided historical tour of the old city and the Cathedral, then rest up for a special farewell dinner.

Day 11: Depart from Santiago de Compostela

Meals: Breakfast

Alas, we must say adios! After breakfast, we'll transfer to the airport in Santiago de Compostela for departures home.

I booked a trip to Tanzania as a last hurrah before getting pregnant and it was totally the trip of a lifetime I was hoping for.

We spent a few days on safari in the Tarangire, a few days in the Serengeti, and then headed off to Zanzibar for a few days of relaxing beach time - the perfect mix of activity and rest. The sights and accommodations were unbelievable and I honestly felt like royalty the whole time! Each time we arrived a new lodge/ “camp” (more like “glamping”) the staff came out to meet us with hot towels and beverages, sometimes even singing a welcome song. In talking to other guests it became clear that our itinerary included only the top lodges, with the friendliest staff, nicest lodging, best food, and most secluded locations. One day we awoke to find a lion paw print literally six inches from our tent, and another night we were woken up by the sounds of a pack of hyena taking down an injured water buffalo that had been hanging around camp. The guides were all super knowledgeable and fun, not to mention skilled at finding all the wildlife we were interested in. There was one day that our guide spotted a cheetah from literally miles away. He tried to point it out to us, but I couldn’t make it out through the binoculars and totally thought he was full of it. Then we started driving in that direction, and lo and behold, 15 minutes later there we were, right next a gorgeous cheetah

In the Spring of 2015, I was fortunate enough to go on the Hikers Patagonia trip through Mountain Travel Sobek. I honestly didn't know anything about this region, which is why I felt like I was in really good hands traveling with MTS. Traveling to an unknown region can be stressful (as I have experienced before), but MTS made it fun and easy! They took care of all of the paperwork in advance and even prep you on all of the gear/clothing you will need on your trip. All of the food, lodging and hiking is planned for your day, so the only think you have to do is enjoy your trip! Not only were the hikes beautiful, but the guides were extremely nice and very knowledgable. I must say, after taking this trip, I've learned that there is nothing better than going on a stunning hike and ending the day with some good food, good wine and good company. I definitely plan on traveling with MTS again!

Returned earlier this week from a trip to the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia with Mountain Travel Sobek. The unique and special attention to detail provided by our guide, Irena, on this trip was unparalleled. We were asked a few questions about food preferences and activities before the trip and it was clear throughout that every single meal and activity was planned in order to make the trip wonderful. It was one of the best trips we have ever taken as a family thanks to that thoughtful preparation. The hotels were chosen specifically for a variety of atmospheres and comfort. We travelled to several islands and locations on the mainland. Each location was very different from the last, providing both a sense of adventure and variety. The food... where to begin, it was amazing; we had several lunches at long tables under olive trees, one at an artists home, a friend of the guide, one at an island ranch, and another at an old converted home. We tried the local liquors and ate local truffles, peppers, olives, etc, from the garden. There were no other tourists at any of the locations, the meals had been set up and specifically ordered prior, by Irena - several times we were the only ones there. On several evenings, we took a boat taxi to another island for fresh seafood at a restaurant on the beach, lit by paper lanterns. We saw one of the kitchen staff go down to the dock to pull mussels and oysters out of a net tied to the dock. I can't describe the beauty of those nights. In addition, we sea-kayaked on a couple of days to pre-arranged spots where Irena prepared a picnic lunch using fresh vegetables, breads, meats, and cheeses. We kayaked past beautiful coastal villages to deserted beaches. The water I can only describe as paradise, not to cold, not too warm, clean, clear, unbelievably inviting - as were the rocky and white pebble beaches. Irena was intelligent and extremely knowledgeable about the region, it's history and politics. Another guide, Anna, joined us for the first few days and we were sorry to see her go - she was also extremely good company, smart, worldly, and knowledgeable. Travelling with Irena and Anna was as relaxed as travelling with old friends. They took care of the details seamlessly and also knew when to give us some space to enjoy our family trip. They were friendly with our teenage boys and talked to them like adults. This tour provided the perfect balance of culture, food, and activity. There is so much more I could say, this was truly a wonderful time that none of us will ever forget. Thank you MTSobek.

I had an amazing trip with MTSobek! I went hiking through the historic villages of Portugal with some of the most knowledgeable and entertaining guides, Artur & Carla. Our group received the utmost attention from our guides as we trekked through a variety of landscapes. The local Portuguese would stop and tell our group some interesting information of the area. The cuisine was exquisite as well as some of the lodging provided. It was a very memorable trip and I would encourage anyone to make their plans to visit Portugal.

Well, since I just left my review for A&K I figured it would only be fair to do so also for MT Sobek. While A&K may dominate the very top tier of Luxury adventure travel, MT Sobek is also right up there at the top. I've travelled with them twice now and have found their guides, accommodations, general knowledge of each place to be top notch. I like MT Sobek a little bit more than A&K because MTS does seem to appeal to a slightly younger more adventurous clientele - where as A&K might be great for a honeymoon or with your parents, MTS feels better if you're NOT your parents.

Guides

Alberto Mediavilla Serrano

Born in Bilbao, Alberto has spent the last 10 years working as guide and operations manager with American hiking groups. He is UIMLA certified mountain leader, has walked the El Camino numerous times, and is has an excellent knowledge of the central area of Spain (Castilla), where his family comes. In the winter, Alberto works as an avalanche rescue instructor, and as an analyst in the mountains of the Picos de Europa. North of the Cantabrian Mountains lies what we refer to as “rainy Spain,” including the Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. Our route takes us through these areas, crossing the Pyrenees from north to south into the High Plains of Central Spain, and eventually into Galicia. This means we will likely experience some wet weather along the way. That said, spring and fall are considered the best times to go to this area of Spain. In May, June and October, showers can be expected, but temperatures will vary between 50-70ºF. July – August can be stifling hot, and the walking paths are very crowded. In winter, temperatures will drop significantly, and snow is common.

 

Erik Perez

Erik was born and raised in Asturias, Region of Northern Spain, with the big range of Mountains called Picos de Europa and Cordillera Cantabrica. He is an accomplished climber (climbing Mont Blanc numerous times), backcountry and downhill skier.
