Discovering the Way of St James Tour

This tour visits the ancient towns, cities and villages along ‘the Way’, each with their own culture, dialect, heritage and gastronomy, proving that it’s not just the destination but the journey too that’s special.

Highlights of the tour:

  • exploring the cathedral cities of Burgos, Logroño and León.
  • Gaudí's fairy-tale palace of Astorga and the ancient citadel of Ponferrada.
  • a stay in Pamplona, the capital of Navarre evoked by Hemingway in ‘The Sun Also Rises’.
  • wine tasting at a bodega in La Rioja.

For centuries pilgrims have followed the ancient Camino de Santiago, from the French Pyrenees to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

Your journey begins with a three-night stay in historic Pamplona, with an trip to St Jean Pied-de-Port before travelling on to Logroño for two nights. Take an included tour here and perhaps visit the World Heritage monasteries of San Millán. Continue to Burgos, stopping en route for a tasting and tour at a Rioja winery. Explore the Gothic cathedral where ‘El Cid’ is buried, before travelling to León. See the sights on an orientation tour and perhaps visit historic Oviedo. Travel onto Santiago de Compostela pausing en route at Astorga and the city of Ponferrada, where pilgrims rested before the last leg of their journey. At Santiago de Compostela, the final destination of the ‘Way’, you'll visit the cathedral where St James the Apostle is said to be buried.
