The Camino Trail, or the Way of St. James, dates back over a millennium when pilgrims would travel by foot to reach Santiago de Compostela. Today it is the capital of Galicia region. It is believed that, after St. James was beheaded by Harod Agrippa I, his followers carried his body into a stone boat which, guided by angels, reached the northern shorelines of modern day Spain. Upon arrival, the local Queen, Lupa, provided St. James with a marble tomb in Santiago de Compostela. The discovery of his tomb in the 9th century created a renewal of faith with pilgrims from across Europe who would make the long journey to his tomb. This wonderful journey through Northern Spain is an incredible opportunity to discover the culture of Spain,  experience the uniqueness of the Basque region, savour the country’s delicate cuisine, witness incredible landscapes that are full of contrasts with mountains, meadows and beautiful coastlines, and, of course, travel the Camino Trail. Hiking along a portion of the Camino Trail, exploring the streets of the Galician capital and visiting the magnificent cathedral of Santiago de Compostela will be highlights of our Spanish adventure!
