    Camino Ingles Day 1Ferrol - Start of your journey

    You will be booked into a hotel in the heart of the town of Ferrol. The rooms are en-suite.

    Camino Ingles Day 2Ferrol to Pontedeume (30km,7h30)

    The English Way begins at the docks of Curuxeiras, in the neighbourhood that has sprung up on the site of the 9th Century medieval port. Leaving the town behind, the Camino follows the coast passing the monastery of San Martino de Xubio (founded in the 8th Century). The Camino continues on until it merges with the Way of O Salto, and later, the "Camino Real" (Royal Way), on the banks of the Eume estuary. The beach of A Magdalena is a prime spot to relax.

    NOTE: If you wish to take your time, we can split this walking day in 2 (18km & 12km), staying overnight in the bustling town of Neda. Here you will stay in a good 2* hotel in the centre of the town in B&B.

    Camino Ingles Day 3 Pontedeume to Betanzos (20km,5h)

    After leaving Pontedeume, the Camino rises to an elevation offering sweeping views of Betanzos, Ares and Ferrol. After crossing the single-arched medieval bridge over the Baxoi river, the Camino leads to Mino by way of the Camino Real once again. Following the shoreline, which is an ever-present feature along the early stretches of the English Way, we reach the wide estuary of the Lambre River. This stretch offers lovely views of the Rias de Betanzos and its marshlands.

    Camino Ingles Day 4Betanzos to Bruma-Meson do Vento (29km,7h)

    After leaving the city behind, the Camino Ingles reaches the old bridge of As Casca, spanning the Mendo River. It then passes the villages of Matino and Boucello. Coming to the abandoned hermitage of San Paio, the Camino traverses farmlands until it comes to Bruma, the site of a medieval hospital.

    Camino Ingles Day 5Bruma-Meson do Vento to Sigueiro (29km,7h30)

    From the chapel of Bruma, the Camino leads to the lush municipality of Ordes. A tree-lined path brings the pilgrim to the church of San Xiao and the village of Casanova.

    Camino Ingles Day 6Sigueiro to Santiago de Compostela (12km,3h)

    After crossing the Sigueiro Bridge over the Tambre river, we continue into the municipality of Santiago. The Way continues along the river and leads to the "Fonte do Ingles" (The English Fountain). The way soon reaches Meixonfrio, site of an old inn where pilgrims and travellers would stop and rest. After passing a pre-Roman hill-fort, where, according to the tradition each passing pilgrim would lay a stone on the already exiting pile, the Camino enters Santiago to reach its imposing cathedral.

    English Way

    Following in the footstep of the "seafaring pilgrims of the North of Europe".

    This walking holiday explores the Camino Ingles / English Way, following the iconic Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the famous Way of Saint James.

    Traditionally, English and Irish pilgrims arrived by sea at Ferrol. The English way starts following the rugged hilly coastline, then moves inland to the lush, wooded countryside.  Passing through the medieval village of Betanzos is like travelling back in time with its hill-perched market place.  It is quieter than other routes so far those who are trying to get away from the more popular French Way, the English Way presents a great alternative to reach Santiago and get your pilgrim certificate within a week.
