Pilgrims have been making their way to the shrine of St James in Santiago de Compostela since AD814.
The Camino de Santiago is considered to be a spiritual expedition in its original form. A spiritual quest, the sense of physical accomplishment, making unique friendships and experiencing amazing landscapes are all reasons why thousands of people make the pilgrimage each year. Traditionally it’s done on foot but completing this expedition on two wheels is a magical way to see even more of this beautiful area and complete the 200km required to officially become a 'pilgrim'. We will be taking the Northern Way from Oviedo in Asturias along its stunning rugged coastline, into Galicia and then up to Santiago de Compostela. You'll also experience magnificent mountain scenery and arguably the best food Spain has to offer along the way.
Undulating / hilly terrain with perhaps three ascents per day on more challenging day. Long distance overall but distances per day are fairly manageable. Riders should have a good level of fitness and experience riding a bicycle. They should be competent with trail and loose gravel riding and regular cycling, gym sessions or other cardiovascular activity is recommended prior to attending this tour.
