Camino Frances 2/3 by Bike

This Cycling Holiday explores the second section of the Camino Frances / French Way by Bike, the most traditional of all the pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela and the best known internationally. The route, which was established in the late 11th century reaching the tomb of St James the Great, crosses the North of the Iberian Peninsula, through the Basque Country, Navarra, La Rioja, Castilla y Leon and Galicia regions of Spain. Nowadays, cycling on the Camino has become an incredibly popular way of enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime journey to Santiago de Compostela. Read more

Cycle de Camino Frances 2/3 Day 1 Burgos

Burgos still preserves important vestiges of its medieval splendour and the city boasts a masterpiece of Spanish Gothic architecture: the Cathedral of Burgos (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Aside from a visit to the historic quarter, you can take an interesting walk along the banks of the Duero and Arlanza rivers.

Cycle de Camino Frances 2/3 Day 2Burgos to Fromista (73 km)

All day long, you will notice the influence of the Camino de Santiago as there is not a single village we cross that does not have obvious references to it.

Cycle de Camino Frances 2/3 Day 3 Fromista to Sahagun (67km)

During this stage, we have a good understanding of the popular meaning "Castilla es ancha" (castilla is wide). Crop fields give patches of beautiful colour to the agricultural landscape all year round. The first half of the day is mainly flat and it gets a bit more undulating on the second half to Sahagun.

Cycle de Camino Frances 2/3 Day 4 Sahagun to Leon (67km)

Today we cycle through the colourful Castillan meseta or plateau. The landscape here seems endless as we pass over the flat terrain of the area, affording great views over the surrounding agricultural area. We finish the day in the vibrant city of Leon.

Cycle de Camino Frances 2/3 Day 5 Leon to Astorga (44km)

This is probably one of the flattest cycling days of the entire Camino Frances, but as we are on a high plateau, it still offers some great views and you will see Astorga down in the valley long before reaching it! In Astorga, take some time to visit the Episcopal palace, the cathedral, and the old city walls.

Cycle de Camino Frances 2/3 Day 6Astorga to Ponferrada (54km)

The last day of this section is definitely the most difficult, but also, the most rewarding one! We can enjoy spectacular views as we climb up to 1500m above sea level to reach the famous Cruz del Hierro (the Iron Cross). The natural scenery and towns with rich history make this the best way to finish the section, before reaching Ponferrada: a city with a lively, and very pretty, medieval centre.
