Trail highlights

The English Way or Camino Engles, could also be called the "seafaring pilgrims of the North of Europe" Way as many pilgrims through the ages were sailing to the northern Coast of Galicia from Scandinavia, Flanders, England, Scotland and Ireland. They made their way to destinations such as Ribadeo, Viveiro, Ferrol and A Coruna. The latter two coastal enclaves, Ferrol and A Coruna, are the starting points of the two alternate itineraries that make up the English Way. The A Coruna-Santiago route covers a distance of 74 km, while the stretch linking Ferrol-Santiago is 118 km long. Read more

EDUCamino - The English Way Day 1 Ferrol - Start of your journey

On arrival in Santiago Airport, you will be transferred directly to your hostel in Ferrol. Following this, a short information evening will be held before your first evening meal.

EDUCamino - The English Way Day 2 Ferrol 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.

EDUCamino - The English Way 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.

EDUCamino - The English Way Day 4 Betanzos 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.

EDUCamino - The English Way Day 5 Bruma-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.

EDUCamino - The English Way Day 6 Sigueiro to Santiago de Compostela (11.5km 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.

EDUCamino - The English Way Day 7 Santiago de Compostela, end of the EduCamino

After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airport for your return flight to Dublin, leaving behind a wonderful city but taking some incredible memories away with you.
