I was wanting to do a biking trip and wondered which route would be the best for this. Are bikers frowned upon on the trail? What would be a good timeframe to allot, or how much of the trail could be done in 4-5 days on a bike.

Also what time of year is the best, I would prefer it to be warm.


Hi Nancy, thank you for your question. A lot of people opt to cycle the route and you can cover more of the trail in less time. Here is a link to the most popular way to cycle if it is your first time doing the Camino - http://caminoways.com/ways/french-way-camino-frances/french-way-section-2-cycling To get your pilgrim certificate at the end of the journey you must cycle over 200 kms. If you have some cycling experience than you should be able to achieve this in under 1 week. Please feel free to get in contact with the team to get more information and advice. You will get through to our travel department at info@caminoways.com Good luck with your travel planning. Kindest regards, Lisa from the marketing team at CaminoWays.com

I getting closer to booking our trip for this upcoming early Fall, I am waiting to get final dates from my husband. Where to you suggest flying in to from the USA, and also flying out of. We would get better fares to the larger cities, but then how would we get to Leon, and also back to the airport from Santiago. Just want to have all aspects of the trip thought out before starting to book. We also will possibly be doing some other sightseeing of Spain while we are there and need to determine if we should do that first or after our pilgrimage. Again, I would need to plan accordingly for this and the transportation that would take.

Thanks so much.

Dear Nancy,

Thanks for getting in touch. If you are starting your trip in Leon, the best option is to fly to Madrid, for all options on flight connections we recommend checking on www.skyscanner.com. From Madrid airport there are direct buses to Leon three times a day, each taking approx. 5 hours. Please see www.movelia.es. You also have the option to go to Madrid centre, where there are more regular bus and train connections to Leon.
We typically recommend doing the Camino at the beginning of your trip and have some time to sightsee and relax afterwards, depending if the logistics can accommodate doing so.

We hope this is helpful, let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

What is the best airport coming from London to start the walk at Sarria please?

Felipe da Rocha
Hi Felipe,

The best airport in Santiago de Compostela. Once you reach Santiago airport you can get a transfer to Sarria which is 111kms away.
