Epworth Camino

12/10/2017 - 22/10/2017

The last six days of the Camino de Santiago offers the chance for time starved travellers to walk the final 115kms into Santiago and gain a wonderful appreciation of the historic significance of the route.

Walking through mixed landscapes in the company of your guide and group, there are numerous reminders of past pilgrims who travelled the route including crosses, statues and grain silos. The history of the trail will be shared with you to ensure that you soak in as much as you can during your short time on the trail. One of the many highlights is reaching the gates of Galicia leading to the fabled Santiago de Compostela with its famous cathedral and the tomb site of St James.
