The Camino de Santiago (or The Way of Saint James) from Sarria is the most popular section on the entire Camino de Santiago. This section, from Sarria to Santiago, is perfect for those pilgrims who want to capture the essence of the Camino de Santiago.


Join the many pilgrims from around the world walking the last section of the Camino Francés from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. This small-group walking tour covers 115kms of the Camino de Santiago and is walked exclusively in Galicia – Spain’s green oasis in the North. You will be walking through beautiful oak woodlands, fragrant eucalyptus forests and traditional Galician villages.


We depart from the Galician town of Sarria, which is located about 100 km away from Santiago. The distance of the Camino Frances from Sarria to Santiago is around 100 km, which is the minimum distance required for pilgrims to receive the traditional “Compostela” certificate, verifying they have completed the Camino de Santiago.

In Santiago de Compostela we can receive our “Compostela” certificate and visit the city’s beautiful old town, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
