Overview

The Camino de Santiago de Compostela is one of the world's oldest pilgrim routes; travellers have made their way across northern Spain to Santiago on 'The Way of St James' for over 1,000 years. The route is marked by the symbol of the scallop shell, typically found on the Galician shores, and a long-standing tradition is to obtain the ‘compostela’, a certificate of accomplishment given to pilgrims upon completing the way; gained by walking at least 100km of the route, which we will do on this trip. .......read more

Food

All breakfasts are included. Breakfasts in Spain usually consist of coffee with milk, toast with ham, olive oil, tomatoes, cheese and butter and jam. Bakery items such as pastries, fruit and juice are also popular. During this trip you can expect different variations of breakfast at the hotels and pensions we stay at but they will all include at least some of the standard breakfast items that are popular in Spain. The land in north Spain is rich and produces almost everything one might want to eat from fish and seafood to good quality meat, vegetables and fruit. Your leader will recommend good places to eat. Sometimes it will be tapas, sharing some “raciones” as a group and sometimes you will be able to choose from the menu. In the Camino de Santiago restaurants and bars offer a set menu called the “Menu del Pergrino” and offer 5 starters, 5 mains and dessert, coffee and drink for about EUR 10-15. If you feel daring you can try the Octopus “Pulpo a la Feira” that Spaniards consider a delicacy and is well cooked and served sliced with paprika, olive oil and sea salt. Sometimes it is also served with “grelos" (boiled sliced potatoes). Mealtimes in Spain are later than in many other countries; dinner is usually taken between 20:00hrs and 21.30hrs. Please be aware that meat and fish are staple food in Northern Spain.  Vegetarians can be catered for, as are other dietary requirements although there may not be the same choice or variety as you have at home and please be prepared to be flexible. Please advise us upon booking.
