Tour Summary

The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of Saint James, is one of the most famous pilgrimage routes in Europe. The destination is Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, in the northwest of Spain.

There are many routes from the north, south, east and west. The particular route we take is called the Camino Mozárabe and it begins in Málaga, stretching through the heartlands of Andalucía to Córdoba and beyond, before it meets with another route, La Vía de la Plata, in the city of Mérida in Extremadura.

You’ll be amazed at the nature you’ll see and hear along the way; what could be more uplifting than soaring birdsong to accompany your footsteps?

Each of our camino tours is a combination of luxury and spirituality. Enjoy gourmet food, cultural visits, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, luxury accommodation and of course, the Camino itself.

Itinerary

Part 1: From Coast to Cordoba
This 7-night pilgrimage incorporates the highlights of the Camino Mozárabe route from Málaga to Córdoba. Embark on a fascinating journey through the history of Spain and discover more about how 3 religions have influenced its culture.

We will end Part 1 of the pilgrimage in magical Córdoba: entering the city across its iconic Roman bridge, and paying a visit to the extraordinary Moorish mosque enclosed within its ancient city walls.

Walk up to 10 miles a day through the constantly changing landscapes of Andalucia: traversing the almond blossomed hills of Málaga and continuing through the olive groves at the centre of the region

Finish each day’s walking with a delicious lunch, followed by an afternoon of rest and relaxation in your hotel.

Part 2: Cordoba to Salamanca
On this 9-night pilgrimage, departing from the city of Cordoba, we will venture into some of the most isolated regions of Spain, through the wild Dehesa landscape of woodland, fields of flowers and a sky full of birdsong (read our blog about the birds on this stretch).

The pilgrimage route passes through the ancient towns of Mérida and Cáceres, and eventually merges with La Ruta de la Plata outside Seville. These intertwining paths will lead us to Salamanca, home to the oldest university in the country and some of the most beautiful examples of architecture in Spain.

Enjoy the surroundings of a variety of handpicked accommodations: from rural retreats to stunning urban hotels.

This is an inspiring and transformative walk embracing UNESCO World Heritage Sites with natural beauty and the power of the Camino.

Part 3: The final 108km
Complete the final leg of the pilgrimage on a lesser-known route, the Camino Sanabrés, starting in Ourense. This landscape of soaring skies and sweeping landscapes will provide you with the solitude and tranquility essential to any pilgrim experience.

Relax and rest your head in the comfortable surroundings of a traditional Galician Palace, known as a Pazo, before spending your final night in a luxury hotel in the vibrant city of Santiago.

Arrive in Santiago for your pilgrim celebrations and take in the awe-inspiring interior of the city’s vast cathedral.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the way of Saint James important?
The Way of Saint James or Camino de Santiago was one of the most important Christian pilgrimages during the Middle Ages. The final destination is Santiago de Compostela and the cathedral of Saint James in the city.

How hard is the Camino de Santiago?
Like any extensive pilgrimage hike, it’s important not to rush the Camino de Santiago. The enormity of the journey may seem overwhelming at first, but with proper and practical physical conditioning and self-care along the way, you’ll be well-prepared to tackle the challenge. The difficulty of the walk also depends on which of the routes you undertake.

Can a 70-year-old walk the Camino?
People of all ages can walk the Camino de Santiago, however there is a certain level of fitness required. We ask that you have the ability to walk 10-15 miles a day, and that is achievable for many age groups who are fit and healthy

Which Camino route is the most beautiful?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and on a pilgrimage your eyes are opened to the beauty that surrounds us every day. That said, the Camino Norte is generally considered the most beautiful as it traverses a coastal path.

What is the accommodation like on the Camino?
Much of the accommodation along the Camino de Santiago is basic albergues and hostels. However, on Toma & Coe’s camino tours you will enjoy a high standard of accommodation with quality meals at the end of your daily walk.

Reviews

★★★★★

There really are no words to describe how well cared for we were and how the Camino provided so many wonderful surprises everyday. Do not hesitate to book a trip with TOMA & COE you will not be disapointed

From the first moment to the last, the Camino Mozarabe trip with TOMA & COE was so mindfully planned each day seemed perfect. Manni Coe’s contacts opened doors that would be unknown otherwise. Back home for just a minute I thought, did all that really happen or was it just a beautiful dream

TOMA & COE took care of everything which means I’m free to focus 100% of my energy on walking… letting go… and being present. The sights were breathtaking. The food was amazing. The hotels were perfect. The guides were angels. And the strangers I walked with will be lifelong friends. I’m a changed person and I can’t wait to go back and walk with TOMA & COE next year!
