Route for Pilgrims

Day 1: Arrival at Ribadeo and accomodation

If you wish, we can organise your arrival in Ribadeo from any airport or station. Be sure to visit this stately town and soak up the sea breeze before setting off for the capital of Compostela.

Day 2: Stage Ribadeo – Lourenzá

28,4 km

This first stage of almost thirty kilometres is accessible to most pilgrims, highlighting only the steep slopes in A Ponte Arante and the one that gives access to Lourenzá, where you can enjoy its excellent cultural heritage, such as the Castle of Tovar.

Day 3: Stage Lourenzá – Abadín

25,8 km

Today you won’t cross as much village and small villages as yesterday, but you will go through one of the seven capital cities in the Kingdom of Galicia: Mondoñedo. You will have to walk up many times, but the landscapes will be amazing. Once you get to Puerto de Xesta you will enjoy the views.

Day 4: Stage Abadín – Villalba

22,4 km

This stage is very level. You will walk through Terra Chá that means flat land. You will walk among green fields and full of cattle, but always near the national road. In this stage you will find a lot of services.

Day 5: Stage Villalba – Baamonde

18,6 km

Once again, the flat terrain makes this stage much easier, where you will alternate between dense forests and large meadows, as well as crossing a couple of tributaries of the river Ladra or villages such as San Xoán de Alba or Pedrouzos.

Day 6: Stage Baamonde – Sobrado dos Monxes

(41,2 km/25 miles)

The fifth stage of our adventure presents itself as a great challenge, even for experienced pilgrims, both in terms of distance and profile. There is the option of splitting the stage into two days, thus extending the total duration of the trip. In any case, nature will be our faithful companion until we reach Sobrado dos Monxes and its spectacular monastery.

Day 7: Stage Sobrado dos Monxes – Arzúa

21,4 km

Although we still have three more stages to reach the city of Compostela, this is the last of the Camino del Norte, as in Arzúa we will join the mass of pilgrims arriving on the French Way. It is therefore a good idea to make the most of this stage, the tranquillity of the Atlantic forests, the quiet country roads and the excellent gastronomy.

Day 8: Stage Arzúa – O Pedrouzo

19,3 km

We only have two stages to go and this is one of the easiest we have done so far. With just over 19 km and no apparent complexity, the stage runs along quiet service roads, crossing woods and meadows and with little gradient. The only downside is that we will have to cross the road several times.

Day 9: Satge O Pedrouzo – Santiago de Compostela

19,4 km

Santiago awaits. Just a few more kilometres to reach the Plaza del Obradoiro and see the Cathedral in front of us. It will be an easy stage, mostly on eucalyptus and oak tracks until we approach Santiago, where we will ride through more urban environments until we get into the heart of the city.

Day 10: Santiago de Compostela

After breakfast, our services will be completed. If you have time, walk around the vibrant town of Compostela and enjoy all its nooks and crannies.
