Join us on this self-guided cycling holiday in Spain where you trace the steps of ancient travellers and make your way along the legendary Camino de Santiago. Pedalling from the historical city of Ponferrada, you'll journey west over 200 Kms, through the Bierzo winelands, over the Sierra de Ancares and deep into lush forested Galicia to the pilgrim journey's end in the stunning granite city of Santiago de Compostela. The Camino is said to be the first great European tourist route. Travelled by pilgrims from around the world for over 1000 years to the site where it is said that St. James the Apostle’s relics are buried.
Pilgrims historically were driven by the belief that to complete the pilgrimage would halve your time in Purgatory….something to bear in mind if your calves start to ache! Today the pilgrimage is as popular as ever with a great sense of camaraderie among the modern day pilgrims. It’s no longer just the faithful that make their way on this magnificent journey! The Camino received UNESCO’s accolade as a World Heritage Site because of the journey’s incalculable cultural, historical and artistic value. 
Your route follows the true Camino Frances as much as possible along forest tracks and country paths, quiet roads and farmers’ trails crossing countless villages and towns. Staying in a range of good quality small hotels chosen for their location and warm welcome, you will be invited to try the specialities of the area in the inns and local restaurants giving you an authentic taste of this enchanting area. It’s hard to find a better way to enjoy Spain. Get your pilgrim's passport or credential stamped along the way and having cycled more than 200 Kms you'll qualify for a pilgrim's certificate, the Compostela - to testify that you have completed the Camino as a pilgrim. 
We also have a guided version of this holiday available if you prefer to cycle in a group with a little more support.
